Tekashi69 Associate, Kooda B, Sentenced To 54 Months behind bars.
It appears Kooda B, an associate of rapper Tekashi69, will be making it home this holiday season. Read on for more details regarding Kooda B Sentenced…
CelebnMusic247.com has learned via Inner City Press that Kooda B, born Kintea McKenzie, was sentenced to 54 months for firing shots at Chief Keef in Times Square in 2018.
As we previously reported, in 2018 it was alleged that Tekashi69 paid Kooda B $10,000 to shoot Chief Keef. Of course, 6ix9ine denied the Chief Keef shooting on social media back then as he felt he was on top of the world and untouchable.
Thankfully, no one was injured or killed at that time.
However, since the world is still in a pandemic, due to the coronavirus, Kooda B was granted his temporary release request from the Metropolitan Correctional Center as a safety precaution because he has asthma.
It was also documented that the Judge over his case, Judge Engelmayer, was reportedly not happy to see Kooda B in music videos breaking social distancing guidelines and wearing gang-related apparel following his release.
Earlier today, during his sentencing that took place on Tuesday, December 1st, Judge Engelmayer said:
I must also consider the conditions of your release during the pandemic. I wrote a decision ordering your immediate release from prison. But I saw you had lied to me. You participated in a party, in a packed apartment, there was drugs and alcohol.
Judge Engelmayer continued:
But for the video I would have gone in the middle of the guidelines. I can now go above the middle but still stay within. COVID stays my hand. Mr. McKenzie, lean forward and pay attention: you are to serve a sentence of 54 months in prison.
After the 54 months, conditions include cooperating in the collection of DNA. From page 28 of the Pre Sentence Report: search condition, to give Probation maximum visibility. You ran with a gang. Probation will have maximum eyes on you.
The statements from the judge were reported by @innercitypress on Twitter as they were live tweeting from the hearing below:
Judge Engelmayer was also the judge in Tekashi69’s case. Tekashi69 was granted early release due to the pandemic this past summer.
