Embattled American rapper has taken the stand against his former gang, the Nine Trey Bloods. He’s dragging another rapper down with him, Trippie Redd. On the rapper’s first day in the Manhattan federal court trial on Tuesday, he spent approximately two hours testifying against the members of his former gang.
TMZ reports that the rainbow-haired rapper wore blue prison scrubs and a white undershirt during the trial with his hair in pigtails. Members of the Nine Trey Bloods gang were present while the rapper testified. According to him, he joined the gang two years ago in November 2017 and was involved in some of their violent crimes including assaults, shooting and also drug trafficking.
The rapper also identified the gang members present in court while he testified. Of course he did that nervously. He reportedly identified yet to be convicted members, Ajermiah ‘Nuke’ Mack and Anthony ‘Harv’ Ellison as members of the gang.
According to him, he met his manager Kifano ‘Shotti’ Jordan and most of the gang members while shooting the music video for his song “GUMMO” in August 2017. Most of them appeared in the video which he also pointed out to the court as the prosecutors stilled it. He also revealed that the gang only wanted him to release music in order to bankroll their activities so he didn’t have to shoot anyone or be initiated to join them.
The rapper also lived up to his new name Snitch9ine by identifying American rapper, Trippie Redd as a gang member from a rival Bloods gang. He revealed that his plea deal with the prosecutors involved him to snitch on his gang members saying he began cooperating with them after he was arrested in November 2018. His full cooperation in the deal will earn him a lesser sentence as opposed to the 47 years he was facing initially.
