Tekashi Kidnapped Or Not?
The trial is about an alleged kidnapping of the GUMMO rapper. The trial is to establish that the kidnapping incident which Tekashi idealizes is real or not. The real name of the apparent victim is Daniel Hernandez.
The defence attorney, Devereaux Cannick of the alleged kidnapper Anthony Ellison believes that the rapper faked his kidnapping to create publicity for his music. He says, “No robbery or kidnapping or assault happened,”
Furthermore, Devereaux Cannick maintains “He was about to drop another album…gotta get that buzz up. That’s how he makes money.”
More Details On The Case
Anthony Ellison is a member of a gang called Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. The 23-year-old American rapper is supposed to testify his relationship with Nine Trey and the gang member.
“The Government expects CW-2 [6ix9ine] to testify that one of his roles in Nine Trey was to make money for the gang and distribute that money among Nine Trey members,” reads a letter from US Attorney, Geoffery Berman, dated 9th of September.
More so, the government wishes to present evidence in the form of messages shared by Ellison along with another member of Nine Trey, Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack. The communication took place just about the time the supposed kidnapping. This might prove to be a great deal for the case. It may mean victory for Tekashi’s case. However it might also bring Tekashi’s case down in a strike.
6ix9ine has got to wait till the trial takes place on the sixteenth day of the month, at the Thurgood Marshall Courthouse in Manhattan. Latest reports from the government confirms that the trial won’t take more than three weeks.
