Tekashi 6ix9ine snitches on rappers Cardi B and Jim Jones, identifies them as Bloods gang members

Tekashi 6ix9ine snitched on fellow rappers Cardi B and Jim Jones and identified them as Blood gang members under oath.  

The 23-year-old rapper – real name is David Hernandez – detailed his time with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods on the witness stand in Manhattan federal court on Thursday as he testifies in the racketeering trial against two members of his old crew, Anthony ‘Harv’ Ellison and Aljermiah ‘Nuke’ Mack.

Tekashi listed off the people he ran with in Nine Trey, name-checking Jim Jones and Cardi B in the process. Cardi B has previously said that she used to be in the Bloods. 

Earlier in his testimony, Tekashi outed another rapper, Casanova, who he said was in a rival Bloods crew. 

He described a gun battle between the Nine Treys and Casanova’s crew at the Barclays Center in April 2018 after the jury was shown surveillance video of the altercation.

Under cross-examination, Tekashi confirmed that Cardi B was in Bloods but denied having copied her path to stardom by featuring his crew in his music videos.  

‘I knew who she was. I didn’t pay attention,’ he told the court. 

Rumors that Cardi B was in the Bloods cropped up back in 2017 when she made her label debut with Bodak Yellow, which features the lyric: ‘These is bloody shoes’. 

The Invasion Of Privacy powerhouse confirmed speculation in an April 2018 interview with GQ.

‘When I was 16 years old, I used to hang out with a lot of…Bloods,’ she told the outlet. ‘I used to pop off with my homies. And they’d say: “Yo, you really get it poppin’. You should come home. You should turn Blood.” And I did. Yes, I did.’ 

Tekashi had previously described on the stand how he used Nine Trey to increase his street credibility and bolster his career, in exchange for bankrolling the gang’s operations through his music earnings.  

Over his three days testifying as the government’s star witness, Tekashi nervously unleashed a cache of damning details about the violent acts he witnessed running with Nine Trey.  

He publicly distanced himself from the gang days before he and alleged fellow members were arrested in November 2017. 

The rapper told the court that he cut a deal with prosecutors the day after his arrest, agreeing to testify against his former confidantes in exchange for avoiding a 47-year prison sentence.    

When asked on Thursday whether he was spilling his vivid accounts to help the government or to get a more lenient sentence, he replied: ‘Little bit of both.’

On Wednesday, Tekashi broke down the events surrounding the Barclays incident with Casanova.  

He said he and his entourage were at the arena to watch the Adrien Broner fight when they ran into Casanova’s crew in a tunnel under the venue and a brawl broke out.  

‘We’re in a tunnel,’ he said. ‘The doors open and 30 of Casanova’s people come rushing at us, six or seven of us. They were trying to get to me but I made my way to the back.’ 

Tekashi testified that his former manager, Kifano ‘Shotti’ Jordan, told a fellow Nine Trey member, Fuquan Lovick, to ‘pull out the gun and shoot it’. 

The prosecutor then played the security footage and asked Tekashi to identify the people in it. 

Tekashi said after the altercation he took to Instagram and mocked Casanova.  

A video of the mockery was shown to the court.

It’s unclear how much weight Tekashi’s testimony will have given his long rap sheet.

He is currently being housed in a federal facility for his own safety and has been escorted into the courthouse through a secure tunnel, flanked by US Marshals. 

Prosecutors have previously suggested that he could be moved into witness protection after his testimony.  

Known almost as much for his tattooed, rainbow-haired look as for his music, Brooklyn-born Tekashi was a social media phenomenon before becoming an ascendant name in hip-hop.

He has 15.5 million followers on Instagram and his album Day69: Graduation Day was among the top-sellers on iTunes following its February release.

Tekashi had a multiplatinum hit song, ‘Fefe,’ with Nicki Minaj, which peaked at number three on the pop charts, and ‘Stoopid,’ featuring the incarcerated rapper Bobby Shmurda.

His drive for success has been studded by a series of run-ins with the law believed to have increased his notoriety.  

In May 2018 he pleaded guilty in Brooklyn to disorderly conduct in connection with a traffic stop. 

In 2015, he was sentenced to probation for appearing in a video in which a 13-year-old girl performed a sex act on another man.

In court proceedings, Tekashi has suggested that his brash stunts and penchant for violence – including his involvement in Nine Trey – were all part of his effort to bolster his ‘bad boy’ public persona.
