6ix9ine's testimony continues.
On Wednesday (Sept. 18), Tekashi returned to the witness stand to continue his testimony in a federal case against reputed Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack. Both men were his gang associates before all were arrested as part of a federal racketeering case in November of 2018.
According to reporter Matthew Russell Lee, who is live-tweeting from the courtroom at Manhattan's Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse, 6ix9ine explained that he and his crew assaulted Trippie Redd in November of 2017. He also reportedly explained Trippie and Casanova's alleged gang affiliations.
After 6ix9ine stated his beef with Trippie stemmed from jealousy and the fact that they were signed to the same record label, 10K Projects, 6ix9ine gave a rundown of the entire assault.
Inner City Press reporter Matthew Russell Lee has been live-tweeting from the courtroom at Manhattan's Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse.
"Trippie Redd's manager gave us the address of his video shoot," reads one part of the testimony recap. "I told Shotti I wanted something done about Trippie. Shotti: 'Say less,' we'll get on top of it. We go to Red Hook or around there, industrial area. I'm in a Jeep. We see Trippie Redd's sprinter van. We surveillanced it, waiting for Trippie Redd. Shotti said he had a few of the homies meeting up with us there. We stake out, Trippie Redd comes, gets in with 15 people. We follow him for an hour on the highway. I recall Harv coming in 4-door Honda."
Once he discussed the plan and moments leading up to the assault, 6ix9ine reportedly recounted the moment the attack actually unfolded.
"The sprinter van gets to the hotel," one of Lee's subsequent tweets reads. "We don't wanna get spotted. Shotti gets out, tells me to stay in the car. Harv parks parallel to the hotel. He's with like three other guys. Shotti comes back screaming, It's fucking Trey Way, I love me Ns, we got that N. "Shotti said Harv punched Trippi Reed in the mouth."
At another point of the testimony, 6ix9ine said that Casanova and Trippie were members of rival Bloods sets. "He was with another set of Bloods.... So was Casanova," 6ix9ine said.
