Ahead of Tekashi 6ix9ine trial which is expected to begin next week, prosecutors have revealed how they expect the rapper’s snitch testimony to go.
Recall that the rapper agreed to a deal with the US government which include testifying against the individuals he got locked up with.
In the letter sent out to the Judge presiding on the case by the U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, it was revealed that Tekashi will name members of his gang involved in various crimes including the July 2018 robbery and kidnap he was involved in.
The prosecutors also expect that the rapper will identify Nine Trey Blood members attached to various aliases used in incriminating texts, social media posts, DMs, and other communications. This will help in proving that the messages were sent by the defendants linked to the case.
He will also testify against himself and other gang members involved in a conspiracy to hurt a rapper, Casanova who wrote lyrics they felt were critical of him. Tekashi will also directly testify against Nine Trey Gangsta Blood member SEQO who allegedly directed rival Blood members to “fire on” 6ix9ine on sight.
An interesting part of the case was that the rapper was the gang’s bank. His role was to make money for the gang and then distribute it among members. His face-off with the gang began after he pulled the plug on the cash flow.
The 23-year-old rapper’s refusal to testify in the case, will see him being handed a minimum of 43 year jail sentence. He will however serve few years if he cooperates with the prosecutors.
