(AllHipHop News) Daniel "Tekashi 6ix9ine" Hernandez is set to testify in open court against his former friends. As part of his plea deal with federal prosecutors, 6ix9ine (identified as Cooperating Witness 2) will have to give his side of what happened the night he was allegedly kidnapped and robbed.
According to TMZ, the 23-year-old Brooklyn rapper is frightened that he and members of his family could become victims of retaliation by the Nine Trey Bloods. Tekashi was allegedly associated with the gang before getting arrested in 2018.
The website reports:
Sources connected to the case tell TMZ, 6ix9ine's crapping his pants over testifying -- worried about how his mother and brother could be harmed, and also for his own safety behind bars. We're told he knows this could make him a marked man for life.
Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack are accused of orchestrating the capture of 6ix9ine and robbing him of over $750,000 in custom jewelry and about $35,000 in cash on July 22, 2018. The defendants claim Tekashi faked the kidnapping as a way to promote his song "Fefe" featuring Nicki Minaj. The record was released the same day as the supposed attack.
"No robbery or kidnapping or assault happened,” said Ellison's defense attorney Devereaux Cannick. “He was about to drop another album…gotta get that buzz up. That’s how he makes money.”
Ellison and Mack pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy, robbery, and carrying a firearm to commit a crime. The trial is currently scheduled to begin on September 16. Hernandez is expected to testify that he offered a $50,000 hit on Ellison. The Dummy Boy album creator pleaded guilty in his own federal racketeering and firearm case.
