Tekashi 6ix9ine Claims Cardi B Is a Gang Member

Tekashi 6ix9ine claimed to be the one dude besides my father who was not paying attention to Cardi B. However, he can confirm that she was a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods?!

The rapper whose legal name is Daniel Hernandez testified in Manhattan last week against alleged Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack in a bid to cooperate with feds in exchange for a more lenient sentence. He currently faces nine federal counts for racketeering and drug trafficking crimes.

Mention of fellow rappers Jim Jones and Cardi B came late into questioning as he seemed to unravel under the microscope of prosecutors. “I knew who she was. I didn’t pay attention,” Hernandez claimed in court although he seemed to cop her style for stardom frequently. Cardi did admit gang affiliation as a teen in a 2018 feature for GQ. Seems Tekashi might have been taking notes.

Cardi’s rep and label, Atlantic Records, have denied 6ix9ine’s allegations. Cardi B, never one to allow others to speak for her, posted a hilarious clip of Keke Palmer unable to identify a photograph of former Vice President Dick Cheney, in a clear response to #Tekashisnitch9, as he has been dubbed by the internet.

Touché, Queen B.
