(AllHipHop News) For many observers, Daniel “Tekashi 6ix9ine” Hernandez taking the stand to testify against his former Nine Trey Bloods allies felt like a scene out of New Jack City. An actual film about the rise and fall (and rise again?) of Tekashi would likely draw a lot of interest.
Power executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson hinted on Instagram that he is trying to bring the story of 6ix9ine and the Tr3yway crew to the screen. An IG user asked Fiddy if he bought the movie rights to the rapper and his former manager/alleged Nine Trey Blood Kifano “Shotti/Tr3yway” Jordan.
“I’m working boy,” responded 50 Cent. The Queens-bred mogul is known to troll online, so it is not clear if he was actually confirming a real Tekashi motion picture is in the works.
50 embraced 6ix9ine as a “son” before the Brooklyn rapper decided to work with federal prosecutors in order to bring down the Nine Trey Bloods. In 2018, 50 Cent and Tekashi also teamed up with Uncle Murda and Casanova for the “Get The Strap” record.
In a September interview with The Breakfast Club, 50 was asked about possibly answering a phone call from Tekashi. The 44-year-old replied, “No… He’s his mother’s child now. After you do sh*t like that, you your mother’s child. Don’t call me.”
Earlier this month, 50 got into a public back-and-forth with Murder Inc’s co-founder Chris Gotti over a potential biopic about convicted drug dealer Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff. Fiddy claimed he would be telling the tale on Starz, but Irv Gotti stated he was creating the Supreme Team biopic with McGriff serving as an executive producer.
