As Tekashi 6ix9ine’s trial continues to take the world by storm, Snapchat wants to be a part of the conversation.
According to TMZ, Snapchat will be airing a docuseries centered around 6ix9ine’s trial in a matter of days. The documentary-style franchise called “VS The World” will chronicle the rapper’s rise to fame and federal charges in the show’s first season. The documentary will feature appearances by DJ Akademiks, Ebro Darden, Adam22, Tory Lanez, Cuban Doll and more.
During 6ix9ine’s trial, he testified against Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members and implicated Jim Jones and Trippie Redd as gang members. On Tuesday (Sept. 24), an audio conversation between gang member, Mel Murda and 6ix9ine’s former manager, Shotti, leaked online. During the conversation, Shotti indicates that he is going to shoot the rainbow-haired rapper.
“[6ix9ine] is trying to dry snitch at the same time, homie,” Mel Murda said. “But he keep saying, ‘F--k Treyway, F--k that n--a, Treyway. Ain’t no n---a, Treyway. F--k Treyway.’” Shortly after, Shotti replies. “I’ma feed him though,” he said while laughing.
Because of the case’s high magnitude, prosecutors are looking into witness protection for 6ix9ine. If this route is taken, 6ix9ine will have to remove his tattoos to ensure his safety. “United States Marshals Service, which runs the witness protection program, would pay for the removal of Mr. Hernandez’s signature face tattoos,” The New York Times stated.
A former F.B.I official, Jay Kramer, stated that there are options for 6ix9ine if he does enter the program. “Despite how connected we are, and the appetite for social media content in this country, there are places where, if this kid gets a haircut and wears normal clothes, no one would know or care who he is.”
