The rapper entered his guilty plea on Saturday, his motion was granted on Friday, NBC4 reports.

The Brooklyn rapper was indicted on racketeering and weapons charges in November, stemming from allegations that he was involved in a July shooting, and a gunpoint robbery. He also faces drug charges.

In November, Tekashi's attorney said his client was 'comletely innocent.'

"An entertainer who portrays a 'gangster image' to promote his music does not make him a member of an enterprise," Lance Lazzaro previously said.
