(AllHipHop News) U.S. Marshals brought Tekashi to court today for his second day of testimony against two men who are being tried in a RICO case against members of the Nine Trey Gangstas.
Tekashi 6ix9ine has testified against Anthony Ellison and Aljermiah Mack, who are alleged members of the New York street gang.
The “Gummo” hitmaker revealed that he joined the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang and helped try to kill an opposing gang member.
Today, 6ix9ine exposed the gang’s internal structure.
“There was a godfather… twins… Five star general…Mel Murda was the godfather. Right under was Shotti… Seqo Billy was a five star,” Tekashi 6ix9ine testified.
He also declared he had to provide big kickbacks to the gang members in the prison lineup of the Nine Trey Gangstas.
“Say I would get $250,000, they would give me like $185,000 and take the rest. I was going shows, appearances, endorsements,” Tekashi 6ix9ine claimed.
6ix9ine said he never questioned what Shotti was doing with the money, which was being used to fund the gang’s operations.
“At first I didn’t ask any questions. Shotti was like, feed the wolves, feed the homies, support them,” the former rapper revealed.
The annual celebration/fundraiser for the A$AP Mob founder took place at the Bronx’s New York Expo Center but ended in chaos when a fight broke out and bats, as well as knives were used as weapons.
The “Gummo” performer posted a note on social media dismissing claims his crew was involved, but he admitted involvement on the stand today (September 18).
“No one knew that Shotti was part of my entourage, so security jumped him. We went to protect him, a huge brawl, people getting stabbed, hit with big sticks,” Tekashi 6ix9ine testified.
The rapper even fingered the gang member Billy Ado as the assailant who stabbed a security guard during the melee.
Yesterday, the musician spent almost two hours on the stand and testified that he became a member of the gang in November 2017, and participated in violent crimes including shootings, assaults and drug trafficking.
The rapper also identified the two defendants as gang members, as well as others in the gang who featured in his “Gummo” video.
He also gave evidence interpreting social media posts and direct messages related to alleged gang activity.
Tekashi testified he began cooperating with federal prosecutors shortly after his arrest in November 2018. He was looking at a minimum of 47 years in prison on gang-related racketeering charges before cutting the deal.
The 23-year-old claimed he never had a formal initiation into the gang, that he never personally shot anyone and his role was to keep making hits so he could bankroll the gang’s activities.
Federal prosecutors fear for the musician’s safety, so he’s being held behind bars in a facility filled with other cooperators.
