Tekashi 6ix9ine’s music videos and lyrics will be used during his co-defendants upcoming criminal trial, as prosecutors believe it helps to prove their case against the alleged gang members.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Federal Prosecutors are informing the court what evidence they plan to use at the upcoming trials for Aljermiah Mack aka “Nuke” and Anthony Ellison aka “Harv”. Ellison worked as part of 6ix9ine’s management at one point and Mack is accused of being a part of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang, in which the rapper was also allegedly involved.
Mack is accused of working with Anthony “Harv” Ellison who was indicted over an attempt to kidnap and rob Tekashi last year. The two men allegedly made off with $750,000 worth of jewelry and $20,000 in cash.
The two are heading to trial which is scheduled to begin next month.
Tekashi 6ix9ine worked out a deal and he cooperated with prosecutors and spilled secrets against his co-defendants. He is still in jail awaiting sentencing, but the newly filed docs reveal he has been quite talkative from behind bars.
Prosecutors are requesting the judge allow them to admit into evidence testimony given by rapper (known as cooperating witness #2 in the documents). They also want to be able to present his music videos for “Gummo”, “Kooda”, “Billy” and “Don’t Run”.
They also want to present the statements 6ix9ine gave to police after the alleged kidnapping by Mack and Ellison.
Further, Prosecutors believe the music videos which contain appearances by members of Nine Trey, including Ellison, and their lyrics speak about disputes between 6ix9ine and rival rappers.
6ix9ine will testify against Mack and Ellison and told prosecutors during filming for the “Gummo” music video, he met several of the Nine Trey members at the shoot. He told them it was shot in front of a building that they considered a headquarters of sorts for Nine Trey.
They continue, “CW-2 is expected to testify that the lyrics of “GUMMO,” refer, in part, to an ongoing dispute that CW-2 had with a rival rapper, who was the victim of the November 2017 assault. In particular, CW-2 is expected to testify that the line “No KB, you a loser n*, up that Uzi n*” is a reference to another Bloods gang member in California, who was the road manager for the rival rapper. Moreover, CW-2 is expected to testify that the repeated references to “Billy” is a reference to the Nine Trey gang.”
In regard to “Kooda”, CW-2 is expected to testify that the lyrics of this video, in part, refer to an ongoing dispute with another rival rapper and gang member who was on the opposite side of the shooting at the Barclays Center on April 21, 2018. CW-2 is expected to testify that the lyrics refer to the fact that CW-2 and other members of Nine Trey were real gang members, as opposed to just rapping about gang activity. For example, CW-2 is expected to testify that the lyric “N++s runnin’ out they mouth but they never pop out . . . Mobbed out, opps out, we gon’ show what we about . . . All my n**s really gang bang . . .” means, in sum and substance, that the rival rapper would talk about committing violence, but would not actually commit such acts; whereas CW-2 and members of Nine Trey actually would commit acts of violence.
6ix9ine will testify about “Billy” with prosecutors saying, “CW-2 is further expected to testify that the lyrics were in response to certain members of Nine Trey (including MACK) as well as other non-Nine Trey gang members (including the other rapper involved in the April 21 Barclays Center shooting) who challenged the authenticity of CW-2’s gang membership, and the propriety of other Nine Trey members associating with CW-2 and focusing more on the rap industry instead of Nine Trey priorities.
They also want to present “Don’t Run” which they say 6ix9ine told them was a reference to a failed attempt by Mack to rob him.
The trial is set to begin on September 9.
