Tekashi 6ix9ine "Snitches" Against Nine Trey Gang Members in Federal Court

 

Earlier this week, rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine testified in federal court against alleged members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang, which may eventually require him to enter a witness protection program.

But if Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was unnerved by this, he certainly wasn’t showing it.  He even bopped his head along to his own music when it was played in court.

The rapper testified against Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack and Anthony “Harv” Ellison, who are both members of Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods and former associates of Tekashi 6ix9ine. Mack is accused of dealing drugs such as fentanyl, heroin, and ecstasy while Ellison is facing charges of robbing and kidnapping Tekashi. The latter allegedly did this at gunpoint back in July of last year.

During Tekashi’s testimony, prosecutors played music videos from two of his songs: “Kooda” and “Gummo.” This was so the rapper could point out alleged gang members in the videos, and this is when the rapper began bopping to his own songs.

Tekashi further indicated that, prior to the production of the video for “Gummo,” he asked members of Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods to participate.  He did this because he wanted them to be part of the video’s “aesthetic.”

In the lengthy testimony, 6ix9ine also revealed a core insight into rap marketing — at least the modern variation of ‘gangsta rap’.

“I knew the formula was to repeat the gang image,” Hernandez said.  “That’s what people like.”

Interestingly, prosecutors gave the jurors in the trial transcripts of the lyrics for “Gummo,” which Tekashi said were meant to disrespect fellow rapper Trippie Redd, who is allegedly a member of an offshoot of Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods called Five Nine Brims. Both Tekashi 6ix9ine and Trippie Redd have been signed to Caroline/UMG.

As part of his testimony, Tekashi told the court that he decided to cooperate with federal prosecutors within a day of authorities arresting him and the others.  That led to a wave of criticism; Snoop Dogg flat-out called Hernandez a “snitch”.

Years ago, Tekashi 6ix9ine was working in a grocery store in Brooklyn, New York when a customer told him he had the right look to become a rapper. This led to the making of “Gummo” in 2017.

Isaiah Thomas Suffers Yet Another Injury, Wizards Fans React

Isaiah Thomas has probably been one the unluckiest players in the NBA over the past decade especially when it comes to injuries and the setbacks he has faced while bouncing around the league. After a less than stellar season in Denver, Thomas signed with the Washington Wizards this summer where he was expected to be a replacement for injured superstar John Wall. Unfortunately, Thomas has faced yet another setback as it was announced today that he will miss the next 6-8 weeks with a thumb injury.

Thomas ruptured a ligament in his left thumb while playing pickup ball and ended up getting surgery. The team says they are disappointed for Thomas although they are committed to keeping him on the team and getting their younger guards ready for the upcoming season.

While this might be a blow to Thomas, it’s also a big deal for the Wizards who have been struggling to find consistent personnel over the last few seasons. They were unable to secure Bradley Beal to a longterm contract extension and with John Wall injured for the year, there aren’t many reasons to cheer for the Wizards right now.

Following the news, Wizards fans took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the not just the announcement but the team itself.

The previously estimated amount Nav was securing per feature was $20K but it appears someone was $60K f. It’s fair to say Nav has come a long way since his debut, self-titled album from 2017. Even before his album, the 29-year-old worked alongside Drake on his former Meek Mill diss track “Back To Back” that dropped in July 2015. One year later Nav linked with Travis Scott on “Beibs in the Trap” that peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 and later went platinum. 

As for what’s up next for the homie, Nav’s set to hit the road to accompany ScHoolboy Q on his Crash tour that kicks f November 4th and stopping f in 19 cities before concluding on December 4th in Q’s hometown Los Angeles. Wonder how much coin Nav’s pulling in for his involvement?

I can’t live my life like this,” she explained, TooFab. Tamar explained how it’s necessary to feel physically amazing to then feel amazing on a mental level. 

“I challenge myself to become my best self. Period,” she added. “I just got tired stuffing my stomach in my pants. Why we sitting around here fronting and lying about, ‘I feel amazing,’ you do not feel amazing after you eat burger, pizza, fries and three martinis like I like to eat — don’t judge me! — I’m just saying.

Air Jordan 1 "Shattered Backboard 3.0" Keeps Fans Divided: Release Details

Some the best Air Jordan 1 colorways the last decade are the “Shattered Backboard” 1.0 and 2.0. The shoes pay homage to the jersey Michael Jordan wore during a charity game in which he completely destroyed a backboard while dunking. Both these colorways are so popular that they are fetching over $1000 USD on resale websites. Jordan Brand is well aware the success these models and is now trying to follow it up with a “Shattered Backboard 3.0.”

The shoe has the same color blocking as the Air Jordan 1 “Bred” except all you have to do is replace the red with some orange. It appears to be the perfect shoe for Halloween, although there are some key differences with this colorway. For instance, there is no orange on the outsole. Instead, the midsole and outsole are the same shade aged cream. Meanwhile, the leather is incredibly shiny and crinkled, which has led to a ton debate within the sneaker community. There aren’t many shoes that look similar to this and fans are underwhelmed by the materials. In that same breathe, there are plenty people who find them fire. It’s clear that this is a polarizing shoe that will continue to have people talking all the way until its release.

According to @zsneakerheadz, these are dropping on Saturday, October 26th for $160 USD.  

Interview: Airi Explains Fruitful Relationship With Rich The Kid

New York, NY – Rich Forever Music’s first female artist Airi is a YouTube star turned signed music artist. The self-proclaimed “mocha princess,” quickly gained traction through her hilarious pranks, reaction videos, and singing vlogs, which ultimately caught Rich The Kid‘s attention, earning her a spot on the label.

The Houston native’s musical buzz came about after dropping single U Mad in 2019 under Rich Forever, featuring Rich The Kid. Since then, Airi has gone on to tour with Rich Forever Music on The World Is Yours tour which hit 22 cities across the country.

With her recent single No Permission featuring YK Osiris making waves, Airi and HipHopDX conversed about her journey into the limelight.

HipHopDX: I know from watching you on YouTube that signing is something that you’ve always done, when did you decide to take it seriously as a career?

Airi: It was about a year and a half ago when a former “YouTuber” had made a song and I was singing around the house already and thought… why don’t I just do a remix to it because I love re-writing things and I really love to sing so why not? I just went ahead and put the song out and loved all of the reactions I got, I couldn’t believe it…so I said let me try this out for real.

HipHopDX: How have you adjusted from being a YouTube star to actual music artist that people are beginning to know about and love?

Airi: Um it’s been a hard adjustment but it’s been very informative and it’s definitely hard to put out YouTube videos as well as spend time in the studio and it give it all of your attention. But it’s definitely been worthwhile.

HipHopDX: How did you team up with Rich in the first place?

Airi: We actually came in contact with each other after he made a post on Instagram that he was looking for a new artist for his label. Coincidentally, I had just dropped that remix I was telling you about and my supporters flooded his social media and told him to listen to me. He DM’d me and I sent him the song, next thing I know he flew me out the following week. We talked for months after that and I showed him more songs of mine…we were vibing. Ever since then it’s been history.

HipHopDX: As the first and only lady of Rich Forever Music, how are you solidifying your spot?

Airi: I’m mainly trying to perfect my craft and also lead a path for those after me. I’m trying to stay focused and learning new things taking criticism as it comes. I’m communicating more if I need help or not sure about stuff. I’m not stopping at all because its so much to be done and I can learn a lot from those before me. I want to keep pushing to the ultimate goal which is leaving a mark for the young ladies and men coming behind me.

HipHopDX: I was listening to the compilation album Rich Forever 4, and heard the song “Tell Me” that you did with 83 Babies, when can we expect a solo project from you?

Airi: You can definitely expect a solo project soon, I don’t actually have a date for you but I am planning an EP which will have features, but I will tell you more when I have the dates ready. There are definitely more projects in the works before the year is over.

HipHopDX: Speaking of more music, you just dropped “No Permission” featuring YK Osiris…tell me about that feature and how it happened.

Airi: My team was playing some unreleased music, and I heard a song and I loved the sound. Rich heard me saying that and was like I want you to do a song with him (YK Osiris). He set up the studio time and we went from there. Rich made it happen.

HipHopDX: Are there any other artists that you want to work with?

Airi: Yes! I’d love to work with Ty Dolla $ign, Summer Walker, Megan The Stallion, Tink, maybe Big Sean. I would love to work with all of them.

HipHopDX: I love them all. Do you have any shows coming up or things we should look forward to?

Airi: Just more music! Whenever I have more shows coming up I will be sure to let HipHopDX know.

Rich The Kids joins the conversation.

HipHopDX: Choosing Airi as the first lady of Rich Forever, how are you making sure that she equally gets her shine among the other label members?

Rich The Kid: She’s going to shine of course. She just dropped her new single, she has video shoots coming, and she was out at fashion week… so I’m making sure that she is doing a lot of the same things as everyone else on the label.

HipHopDX: You’ve had a successful Summer from touring with all of your artists like Yung Bino, 83 Babies, Airi, and Jay Critch, what’s next in the pipeline for these artists?

Rich The Kid: 83 Babies is dropping their project ‘Big 3,’ Jay Critch working on his album now and it should be out the top of next year, Bino project is pretty much done, so we’re coming for next year! I’ll probably drop a project this year too.

HipHopDX: I know all of your artists are pretty busy but is there a Rich Forever Music tour in the works soon? 

Rich The Kid: There will definitely be a Rich Forever Music tour, can’t put an exact date on it right now, but soon.

HipHopDX: That’s something to look forward to. Off the success of the Rich Forever 4 compilation album, do you plan on having another compilation album like that or would you rather focus on each individual artists right now?

Rich The Kid: I want to make another one but it will be 10 times better than the last one.

HipHopDX: How does it feel to see all of your artists having such great success?

Rich The Kid: It’s a great feeling to be able to share my blessing with other people, we getting money, we’re happy and everything is great.
