(AllHipHop News) Inner conflict over control of Tekashi 6ix9ine’s career ripped members of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods apart.
Next week, Tekashi 6ix9ine is expected to take the stand to testify during Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack’s trial, who is accused of dealing drugs and committing violence on behalf of the gang.
Nuke, and another man named Harv Ellison are accused of being members of Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
Both men were charged in a sweeping RICO indictment against Tekashi 6ix9ine and his manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan as well as almost a dozen other gang members.
Feds accused the men of being gang members who were running guns and dealing drugs throughout New York.
Nuke was trying to impress the group to get into good favor with the gang’s prison leader “Snake Eyes” as well another gang member known as Frank White, whose identities will be revealed by 6ix9ine when he takes the stand.
The gang is also accused of terrorizing anyone who dissed 6ix9ine with an overwhelming amount of violence.
According to sources, internal problems flared up between 6ix9ine and Shotti, and Nuke, in addition to fellow gang members Harv Ellison and Mel “Murda” Jones.
The gang’s top leaders disagreed on the best way to reply to the many threats from outside rappers like YG, Chief Keef and Casanova.
6ix9ine will testify Shottie felt as though Nine Trey should respond to any form of disrespect, no matter how slight, in a physical way in a public setting.
Tekashi 6ix9ine will confirm Ellison preferred to respond to any perceived slights with violence, but there was no reason to publicize it, since the word would spread about the fate of those who happened to those who disrespected Nine Trey.
As for 6ix9ine and Ellison, the guy who eventually kidnapped him, they fell out over an incident at South by Southwest in March of 2018.
Tekashi 6ix9ine was supposed to perform, but he was run off of the stage by people affiliated with Rap-A-Lot, during a feud with J. Prince Jr. and he was unable to perform at his event.
Harv Ellison was p##### because 6ix9ine left him stranded in Austin after he threatened friends of the rapper who were not members of Nine Trey, over the altercation at South by Southwest.
This admonishment devolved into a lengthy back and forth between Tekashi 6ix9ine, and other members of Nine Trey and the SXSW incident marked the start of a split between the crew.
The feds say things reached a boiling point between the warring factions in July of 2018 when Ellison and another man kidnapped Tekashi 6ix9ine in Brooklyn and robbed him for over $750,000 worth of jewels.
Later, the feds found surveillance footage of a black Mercedes Benz hanging around the home of an associate of Ellison, who was nowhere in sight.
Tekashi 6ix9ine will confirm that Shotti and others piled into the black Mercedes Benz in question and went looking for Ellison in the aftermath of the kidnapping and robbery.
The discord between the group is captured in over 13,000 text messages the government will introduce as evidence during the trial.
This batch of evidence was not entered into the court docket and was given directly to Nuke’s lawyers to protect the identities of other witnesses who have not been charged.
Tekashi 6ix9ine will face off against Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack in court on September 16.
