(AllHipHop News) Most of the Hip Hop world is paying close attention to Daniel “Tekashi 6ix9ine” Hernandez this week. The “Gummo” rapper has spent the last few days testifying in federal court against his alleged Nine Trey Bloods brethren Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack.
Reportedly, 6ix9ine also used his time on the stand to inform the court about rival Hip Hop artists Michael “Trippie Redd” White IV and Caswell “Casanova” Senior. Hernandez’s role as a cooperating witness for the government led to judgment from some rap fans and industry figures.
Tekashi’s “Kika” collaborator chose not to throw the Brooklynite under the bus during an interview with Complex News. In fact, Tory Lanez expressed support for his friend.
“As a person, and regardless of whatever he did, I kinda miss that guy. That was my n*gga. He was a funny guy,” said Lanez about 6ix9ine. He added, “I don’t really give a f*ck how people view me. N*ggas don’t like me already. God forbid, I kill somebody tomorrow, and I go to jail, and y’all look at me as a murderer for the rest of my life, that doesn’t change the songs that I made.”
Apparently, Tory caught significant backlash for his comments. The 27-year-old Toronto representative addressed the negative reaction on his Instagram page.
“Showing LOVE to somebody who you made records with is VERY different than CONDONING [SOMEONE’S] ACTIONS … y’all blogs can CHOP up the interview and make sh*t seem interesting for your fans … but watch the whole interview … and don’t try to get me caught up in nun of that. FOH,” posted Lanez.
