The current situation around rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine continues to be highly controversial, as the rapper has made some testimonies in court that have drawn a lot of attention to various figures.
6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, even went as far as to accuse fellow rapper Cardi B of being a gang member, which drew even more controversy to him and his situation.
However, it looks like he might have been on to something indeed, as recent reports indicate that the rapper’s testimonies have led to the conviction of several gang members.
Anthony Ellison — known as Harv — and Aljermiah Mack, who goes by “Nuke,” were recently found guilty on charges of racketeering conspiracy.
The convictions drew even more attention to the case, as some have now started to take Tekashi’s words much more seriously than before.
Others remain worried for the rapper due to his involvement in the whole ordeal, noting that he had painted a massive target on his back.
Indeed, Tekashi 6ix9ine was supposed to enter protective custody after the legal case is over.
Many have questioned the idea, pointing out that he has some very distinctive features, including his facial tattoos.
Later reports confirmed that the rapper would have to pay out of his pocket for any cosmetic surgery to change his appearance, including the removal of the tattoos in question.
It is still not clear if he is going to accept the witness protection deal in the first place, or if he will try to live out his life entirely publicly.
One person had this reaction: “Hopefully, he gets at least 15 years he has to do some time no matter what. Wonder Kim is his lawyer, lol.”
A defender had this to say: “Remain safe. We all mess up but forget to think human. It’s surviving out there as I speak for many that stepped out of the game because of people snitching ON YOU. Story’s getting turned around. Don’t quote the story if you believe it at all.”
A fan of the controversial rapper replied: “Get ready world. He is coming back harder than ever! Praying he gets out that day and that he and his family remain safe. 🙏🙏🙏”
The young rapper is persona non grata in the industry at the moment.
