According to a report from the LosAngelesTimes.com, the Get Rich Or Die Tryin‘ rapper, 50 Cent, is now gearing up to begin filming for a docu-series regarding the recent actions of the New York artist, Tekashi 6ix9ine, who is currently in the middle of a trial in which he has been giving the federal authorities all the information they need regarding gang behavior in the city.
A representative confirmed with Variety that 50 Cent thinks the trials and tribulations of Tekashi 6ix9ine will make for great television, as will the legal drama and squabbles of other stars. The star is getting ready to create the series named, A Moment in Time, produced by him and his production company, G-Unit Film and Television.
TMZ was the first publication to report on the news. As it was noted above, Tekashi 6ix9ine was booked on racketeering charges among others at the beginning of the year. He was subsequently taken into custody by the authorities.
Reported by iHeartRadio on the 17th of September, Tekashi 6ix9nine, real name Daniel Hernandez, appeared as a government witness in a federal court in Manhattan where he dished on the behavior of some of his former affiliates, including Trippie Redd.
Hernandez spilled the beans regarding the New York gang, Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, and he hasn’t been able to live it down ever since the news first came out that he really was ratting out his ex-affiliates to the federal agents.
During his testimony, claims Matthew Russell Lee of the Inner City Press, Hernandez testified against his former compadres, Anthony Ellison and Aljermiah Mack, the two men who abducted him during the summertime of last year.
Speaking before the court, Mr. Hernandez denied claims that it took him a while to tell the authorities what they wanted to hear. Daniel claimed he started singing to the feds the moment they apprehended him. Daniel said to the court that he wasn’t actually a member of the gang, he was merely a pillar of financial support for them in exchange for protection and credibility.
The New York Times reported that the Gummo rapper conceded he was never really a member. He was using the gang for a number of reasons, including street credibility.
