TEKASHI 6IX9INE TAKES THE STAND IN COURT, DETAILS INNER WORKINGS OF NINE TREY GANGSTA BLOODS
What a wild day in court for Tekashi 6ix9ine, legally known as Daniel Hernandez. The “Gunmo” rapper took the stand Tuesday afternoon and told it all, every detail of his career and the workings of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
According to Complex, 6ix9ine’s testimony was to help the government’s case against gang member Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack.
6ix9ine appeared in front of a packed Thurgood Marshall Courthouse in Manhattan, dressed in blue prison jumpsuits with his hair braided and questioned by attorney Michael Longyear.
While on the stand, Hernandez revealed that he began to assist federal authorities just one day after his November 18, 2018 arrest.
During his time on the stand 6ix9ine detailed the inner workings of the gang, beef with Trippie Redd while also stating he was a member of a gang, what was the meaning of certain gang terms and more.
Tekashi revealed that he never was properly inducted in a gang, which meant slicing someone’s face to become a member, instead was there to fund the gang. One of the alarming statements he revealed was only collecting $2,000 from multiple tours overseas.
“I knew I had a formula,” 6ix9ine said. “I knew the formula was to repeat the gang image, promote it. That’s what people like.”
