Tekashi 6ixine has lived a tumultuous life so far. One of his former managers is also in trouble with the law. Now, Kifano Jordan, a.k.a. Shotti, says he can no longer afford to defend himself.

Court documents retrieved by Complex show Shotti has filed paperwork requesting appointment of new counsel. The court document shows that he only has $1,200 cash on hand or in savings accounts.

Citing the Criminal Justice Act, Shotti made the motion for appointment of a new attorney. Essentially, the troubled manager is asking for a public defender.

Under the law, Shotti is entitled to such an appointment. The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts lays out the guidelines.


“The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees an accused the right to representation by counsel in serious criminal prosecutions. Enacted in 1964, the CJA establishes a comprehensive system for appointing and compensating legal representation for accused persons who are financially unable to retain counsel in federal criminal proceedings.”

Kifano Jordan was sentenced to 15 years in prison back in 2019. The sentence came from a federal racketeering case. Shotti recently tried to make some money when he challenged 6ix9ine to a boxing match.
