Tekashi 6ix9ine Being Called 'Tekashi Snitch 9ine'

Tekashi 6ix9ine Being Called 'Tekashi Snitch 9ine'

Unless you've been living under a rock, you're probably aware that rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is currently on trial in the US and is seemingly upsetting a lot of people within the hip hop world while he's there.

The rapper, 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.

Hernandez testified against former alleged gang-members Anthony 'Harv' Ellison and Aljermiah 'Nuke' Mack, who are accused of racketeering and while there he also said, while under oath, that rappers Cardi B and Jim Jones were members of notorious Bloods gang - something which Cardi B has since denied.

He's now finished testifying but it appears though plenty of rappers have turned on him.

Rapper and Power star Curtis Jackon - better known as 50 Cent - shared a meme in which a court sketch of Hernandaz has the words: "Judge: Is that all? 6ix9ine: ... and Tommy Killed Angela Valdez." on his Instagram account.

While Snoop shared a meme showing a photo of Hernandez with text over the top which read, in part: "Snoop ain't a real dog."

On social media, others have pilled in sharing memes alongside the hashtag #TekashiSnitch9ine:

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 Hernandaz 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. 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." Well, that's good.
