Tekashi 6ix9ine's Prepares for Upcoming Trial
The federal judge overseeing the case Paul Engelmayer ruled Wednesday that prosecutors can only use portions of three Tekashi music videos — “KOODA”, “GUMMO”, and “BILLY,” that will have to go through editing to delete “rank misogyny.”
“I will exclude the portions… that contain irrelevant misogyny,” Engelmayer said, ruling that those lyrics could lead jurors to discredit the New York rapper’s testimony as a government witness. Tekashi is cooperating with the feds in the hopes of getting a lighter sentence, he has already pleaded guilty to nine gun, racketeering, and drug charges.
Other parts of the videos are being used to show the “public display” of the Nine Trey Bloods’. Engelmayer was not happy that the government intended to show the jury Tekashi’s crazy music videos in full. Here is one of Tekashi’s music videos below, so you get the whole picture.
“I cannot imagine that under close review the government would ask the court to admit these 19 (misogynistic) lines,” he said, talking about the lyrics from “BILLY.”
Daniel Hernandez or a.k.a Tekashi69 , will be a star witness for the government in the trial of Nine Trey gangsters Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack.Mack is charged with narcotics trafficking and racketeering. Ellison is accused of kidnapping Tekashi, racketeering and gun charges.
Ellison’s attorney Deveraux Cannick has said he will attack Tekashi’s credibility by highlighting his online antics as a trash-talking troll who “fabricated” key episodes in the case, reported the Daily News.
Judge Engelmayer also ruled that Tekashi can not be questioned in detail about his 2015 conviction for a sex crime involving 3 vulger videos of a 13-year-old girl and other men.
