As Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 69 prepares to testify against his former crew members, it’s reported that 6ix9ine’s testimony will clarify his role within the Nine Trey Bloods as the money maker for the gang.
Just last week Tekashi’s former manager Shotti was sentenced to 15 years in prison for his involvement in the racketeering case. Ahead of 6ix9ine’s trial that is set to take place next week, new documents were released on Monday that claim 6ix9ine‘ job was to make money for the Nine Trey Bloods. Within the trial, Tekashi is expected to testify against two accused Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang members who have not pleaded guilty, Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack.
A September 9 letter from U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman shares the government’s plans for the trial, including 6ix9ine’s explanation on his role within the gang, Complex reports.
“The Government expects CW-2 [6ix9ine] to testify that one of his roles in Nine Trey was to make money for the gang and distribute that money among Nine Trey members,” the letter reads.
The letter also states the government will share text messages Ellison allegedly sent around the time of 6ix9ine’s alleged kidnapping where he allegedly asked about 6ix9ine’s whereabouts before the attack and information he received about media coverage following the incident. The government also hopes to share messages between Ellison and an unnamed individual that are allegedly about purchasing 6ix9ine’s jewelry that Ellison is accused of stealing during the attack. However, Ellison’s lawyer reportedly told Complex that his client will argue that the kidnapping was a publicity stunt.
The trial starts on September 16 at the Thurgood Marshall Courthouse in Manhattan and is expected to last a little less than three weeks, the outlet adds.
