(AllHipHop News) The trial involving rap star is Tekashi 6ix9ine wrapped up on Thursday (September 26).
Last week the embattled rapper testified against fellow members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang – with whom he helped try to kill a rival gang member – as part of a plea bargain to avoid a potential 47-year prison sentence.
Tekashi 6ix9ine and almost a dozen men were hit with RICO charges in November of 2018, for dealing drugs in New York, shooting their rivals and committing crimes against each other during in-fighting amongst the gang.
Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack and Anthony “Harv” Ellison were charged with several violent crimes, as well as being involved in the kidnapping and robbery of 6ix9ine.
Despite overwhelming evidence and 6ix9ine’s damning testimony, both men claim the Brooklyn rapper set-up his robbery and that the whole thing was staged for social media clout.
Ellison’s defense claimed 6ix9ine, born Daniel Hernandez, faked the abduction to promote his record “FEFE” which featured Nicki Minaj shouting out the gang.
The jury has taken almost a week off, and they will return to begin deliberations early next week, and a verdict could be delivered as soon as October 1.
