Not even rapper Cardi B got rid of those who are “singing” Tekashi 6ix9ine in the organized crime trial in the federal court of Manhattan since Tuesday.
The urban exponent witnesses the prosecution against his former cronies of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang.
With his testimony, Daniel Hernández, of Puerto Rican Mexican origin, could be released from a 47-year prison sentence.
In the questions as part of the cross-examination, Tekashi 6ix9ine answered “correct” to the question of whether the Bronx exponent of Dominican roots was part of the gang, which originated in Los Angeles, and currently reaches several areas of NYC.
“I knew who she was. I didn’t pay attention to it, ”said the witness in court.
However, the interpreter, at the request of Alex Huot, a lawyer for one of the accused Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack, denied that he used the singer’s project for fame or included other gang members in his videos.
In addition to the mention of Cardi B, Tekashi 6ix9ine referred to rapper and producer Jim Jones, known as “Dipset.”
Hernandez testifies against two influential ex-partners of the organization, identified as Anthony “Harv” Ellison and “Nuke” Mack.
In an interview last year with GQ, Cardi B had confessed his ties to the Bloods, and said he had remained silent on the subject so that the young people who follow her would not think it is okay to join these groups.
