WILKES-BARRE (WOLF) -- A controversial New York City rapper is coming to our area.

According to our news-gathering partners at the Times Leader, Daniel Hernandez, also known as 'Tekashi69' is scheduled to make appearances at Bentley's February 9th and Ali Baba Lounge April 26th.

He pleaded guilty in connection with videos showing a juvenile engaging in sex acts.

Hernandez still denies the allegations, even referring to himself as a "happy rapist" in a Snapchat video posted to YouTube.

Both venues could not immediately be reached for comment.
