Tekashi 6ix9ine testifies on trial snitching on Cardi B and Jim Jones, as he identifies them as Bloods gang members

Tekashi 6ix9ine snitched on fellow rappers Cardi B and Jim Jones and identified them as Blood gang members under oath.

The 23-year-old rapper – real name is David Hernandez – detailed his time with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods on the witness stand in Manhattan federal court on Thursday as he testifies in the racketeering trial against two members of his old crew, Anthony ‘Harv’ Ellison and Aljermiah ‘Nuke’ Mack.

Tekashi listed off the people he ran within Nine Trey, name-checking Jim Jones and Cardi B in the process. Cardi B has previously said that she used to be in the Bloods.

‘I knew who she was. I didn’t pay attention,’ he told the court.

He previously told the court about how he used Nine Trey to increase his street credibility and bolster his career, in exchange for bankrolling the gang’s operations through his music earnings.

The rapper told the court that he cut a deal with prosecutors the day after his arrest, agreeing to testify against his former confidantes in exchange for avoiding a 47-year prison sentence.

When asked on Thursday whether he was spilling his vivid accounts to help the government or to get a more lenient sentence, he replied: ‘Little bit of both.’

Over his three days testifying as the government’s star witness, Tekashi has unleashed a cache of damning details about the violent acts he witnessed running with Nine Trey.

He publicly distanced himself from the gang days before he and alleged fellow members were arrested in November 2017.
