The “GUMMO” rapper caught a break in court this week after a judge barred parts of his videos as part of an upcoming trial.
(AllHipHop News) Tekashi 6ix9ine’s cooperation with the feds in a sweeping RICO case against the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods seems to be paying off.
The rapper is set to take the stand against two of his former associates who are about to go on trial after being rounded up and charged back in November of 2018.
Anthony “Harv” Ellison is accused of kidnapping 6ix9ine and robbing him for over $750,000 in jewels and $15,000 in cash.
Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack is one of almost a dozen men rounded up and charged for raising hell around New York City by shooting at their rivals in broad daylight, robbing rival gang members and dealing drugs.
Lawyers for both men were hoping to attack 6ix9ine’s credibility and they planned on using some of the disgraced rapper’s videos, but a judge has severely limited what jurors will be able to see.
The judge overseeing the case banned the misogynistic parts of 6ix9ine’s videos/songs “GUMMO,” “BILLY” and “KOODA.”
According to the judge, the trash talk about women is not relevant to the case, but the rest of the yrics as well as the rapper’s videos, offer up glimpses into the inner-workings of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
The judge also barred any references to Tekashi 6ix9ine’s 2013 conviction for putting a nude, 14-year-old girl in one of his rap videos.
Tekashi 6ix9ine, born Daniel Hernandez, was facing dozens of years in prison after pleading to multiple gun, racketeering and drug charges.
He decided to cooperate with authorities in order to get a lighter sentence.
With the exception of Harv Ellison and Nuke, every member of 6ix9ine’s crew including his manager Shotti, has pleaded guilty in the RICO case.
