Tekashi 6ix9ine Could Enter Witness Protection

Rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine might enter witness protection programme after testifying against members of his former crew, Nine Trey Bloods gang. 

Although all we’ve heard and seen about Tekashi has been the constant trolling online for snitching on his former crew, his life may very well be in danger. Last week, the rainbow-haired rapper took the stand at the Manhattan Federal Court to testify against Anthony “Harv” Elison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack during trial. The rapper also opened up about the inner workings of the gang while it was in operation and how their operations were linked to the hip-hop society.

Elison and Mack are currently facing racketeering and firearms charges. Elison is also on trial for the alleged kidnapping and beating of the rapper after a music video shoot last year.

During the trial last week, the Fefe hitmaker identified the two men to the court as members of the gang, and also revealed some of the parts they played.

Because 69 may be in danger after the trial, the New York Times reports that prosecutors have suggested he could enter the witness protection programme. Speaking to the paper, former FBI official Jay Kramer said despite the rapper’s fame, he could still go unrecognized. He said;

Despite how connected we are, and the appetite for social media content in this country, there are places where, if this kid gets a haircut and wears normal clothes, no one would know or care who he is.”

The “69” tattoo on the rapper’s face also comes into question too.
