Tekashi 6ix9ine Testifies Against Fellow Gang Members in Court

During his testimony, 6ix9ine even said that Trippie Redd was a gang member, tying the rapper to the Five-Nine Brims.

Altogether, he spent almost 2 hours on the stand - wearing blue prison scrubs, a white undershirt and still rocking his rainbow colored hair, styled in pigtails. The rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, took the stand to testify to help make the government's case against the alleged Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack and his music was played when he was explaining how his career intertwined with the gang.

Tekashi also revealed that he was introduced to many Nine Trey members at the set for his 2017 hit "Gummo". That is also the day he met his manager, Kifano "Shotti" Jordan.

Tekashi testified that he never had to be initiated or shoot anyone to join the gang.

R. Kelly 'friend' who paid $100K bond now wants her money back
The next hearing in Kelly's case in Cook County was scheduled for December 4, but Kelly is not required to be there. He called it overkill considering Kelly is being held on no bond in his federal case.

6ix9ine agreed to snitch as part of a plea deal, which will provide key testimony for prosecutors.

Tekashi's court appearance is big news since he's facing 47 years in prison for gang-related activity with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, but since he's cooperating with details about his involvement, he may get a more lenient sentence. U.S. Marshals took Tekashi through a secure tunnel to the courthouse, and he's been placed under heavy guard in a facility with other snitches.
