Snoop Dogg Lays Into Tekashi 69 For Being A Snitch
The hip hop community has been lashing out against rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine for being a 'snitch', having ratted out gang members from the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods - which he admitted to being part of from 2017 to 2018.
The latest swipe comes from Snoop Dogg, who's compared the situation to that of Martha Stewart, who found herself in quite the legal pickle 15 years ago when she was found guilty on felony charges of conspiracy, obstruction of an agency proceeding and making false statements to federal investigator back in 2004.
She spent five months in a correctional facility - but according to Snoop, 'baby girl' never snitched once.
In a social media post, Snoop wrote: "I invite you all to remember Martha Stewart snitched on NOT ONE soul during her trial.
"Baby girl kept it 10 toes down and ate that prison sentence by herself, like the true baddie she is."
In the caption, he added: "That's my. M. F. Home girl. Solid as a rocc."
Snoop had also previously shared a meme showing a photo of Hernandez with text over the top which read, in part: "Snoop ain't a real dog."
Rapper and Power star Curtis Jackson - better known as 50 Cent - is another celeb to have turned on Tekashi 6ix9ine, having shared a meme in which a court sketch of Hernandez has the words: "Judge: Is that all? 6ix9ine: ... and Tommy Killed Angela Valdez."
Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, gave evidence against accused members of the Nine Trey Bloods gang as part of a plea deal to try and avoid a minimum 47-year sentence.
If his plea deal is a success, the rapper will be released from prison this year - but what will happen to him then remains to be seen.
It's been reported that Hernandez may be offered witness protection, but that his... let's call them interesting... tattoos might be holding him back.
According to the New York Times if feds do offer him witness protection, it's unlikely they'll go to the expense of having his facial ink removed and given that one of them is a massive '69' that might be a problem.
The report reads that 'it is unlikely the United States Marshals Service, which runs the witness protection program, would pay for the removal of Mr. Hernandez's signature face tattoos'.
But one expert reckons it might not be so hard for Hernandez to blend in in a new environment.
Jay Kramer, a former FBI official who has worked on organised crime cases, told the New York Times: "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."
