For the third day of 6ix9ine’s trial, which took place on Thursday (Sept. 19), the 23-year-old rapper identified Cardi B as a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods. Shortly after, the Invasion of Privacy spitter’s representative shot down those accusations to Billboard.
While on Twitter, Cardi issued a statement. “You said it yourself,” she wrote. “Brim not 9 Trey. I never been 9 trey or associated with them.”
In addition to that, Cardi posted a viral video of Keke Palmer where she states that she doesn’t know “that man” [Dick Cheney]. “I hate to say it. I hope I don’t sound ridiculous. I don’t know who this man is. I mean, he could be walking down the street, and I wouldn’t know a thing,” Palmer said in the video.
In the past, Cardi has opened up about her gang affiliations. In an interview with GQ last year, the New York rapper encouraged girls to follow in their own 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.”
She continued, “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?”
During his testimony, 6ix9ine stated that although he knew of Cardi B that he didn’t follow her blueprint for fame.
