New York, NY – Apparently Dipset OG Jim Jones wasn’t the only person Tekashi 6ix9ine identified as a gang member during Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack’s trial.
Page Six reports at Thursday’s (September 19) hearing, the controversial rapper also named Cardi B as a member of the Bloods. Complex obtained a court transcript that showed Page Six misidentified 6ix9ine’s claim, which incorrectly identified Cardi as belonging to the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
Under cross-examination, 6ix9ine confirmed the “Bodak Yellow” superstar was a Bloods member but denied he followed in her footsteps by having fellow members appear in his videos.
“I knew who she was. I didn’t pay attention,” he reportedly told the court.
In a 2018 interview with GQ, Cardi admitted she had ties to the Bloods and Brims but discouraged young girls from ever walking down that path.
“When I was 16 years old, I used to hang out with a lot of Bloods,” she said. “I used to pop off with my homies. And they’d say, ‘Yo, you really get it poppin’. You should come home. You should turn Blood.’ And I did. Yes, I did.
“People always be like, ‘Oh, Cardi never used to rep it when she wasn’t making music.’ Yeah, because I already got signed. I can do that now. I’m smarter than what people think. There’s so many things that I limited myself because I wanted a million-dollar contract. When I do interviews, I don’t talk about it, because I will lose my endorsements. But since the cat is out of the bag, that’s how I feel. Why? For what? Why would you join a gang?”
6ix9ine was originally facing a mandatory 47-year prison sentence in his racketeering case but as the government’s star witness in the Ellison and Mack trial, he could receive time served and be out early next year.
