Tekashi 6ix9ine has returned to the witness stand.

For day two, 6ix9ine continues his testimony against Nine Trey Gangsta Blood members, Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack. According to reporter Matthew Russell Lee, 6ix9ine stated that he and his crew assaulted Trippie Redd, back in November of 2017. The 23-year-old claimed that the attack stemmed from jealously since he and Trippie were both signed to the same label, 10K Projects.

“Trippie Redd’s manager gave us the address of his video shoot,” Daniel Hernandez, who is known as 6ix9ine, said to prosecutors. “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.”

After discussing the plan, 6ix9ine revealed the attack in detail. “The sprinter van gets to the hotel,” the “FEFE” rapper stated. “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 f—king Trey Way, I love me Ns, we got that N.’ Shotti said Harv punched Trippie Redd in the mouth.”

In addition to that, 6ix9ine also implicated Casanova to which he stated that the Brooklyn rapper and Trippie were members of rival Bloods sets. “#69x9ine says, echoing yesterday’s testimony: my main dispute with with Trippie Redd. “He was with another set of Bloods.... So was Casanova,” Lee wrote.

During 6ix9ine’s trial, many members of the hip hop community have shared their reactions on social media. Meek Mill stated that 6ix9ine’s situation serves as a learning lesson for others. “69 going up in s federal courthouse today kids! Message of the day don’t be a Internet gangsta... be yourself! #cloutisnottheroute get money,” he wrote.
