50 Cent was once supportive of 6ix9ine, and he even purchased a gift for Tekashi in the past. However, it seems he’s changed his tune now that 6ix9ine has accepted a plea deal in a federal racketeering case and reportedly identified his fellow Nine Trey Gangsta Blood members as participants in several serious crimes.
Appearing on DJ Drama’s Shade 45 show this past Sunday (Feb. 3), 50 spoke on the RICO case that 6ix9ine is currently fighting and doesn’t seem to have much hope for his former friend.
“[RICO] laws were designed for you not to escape them. When I saw what I saw in the paper, I feel like he’s gonna tell on everything,” 50 told Drama and his co-host, Sarah ViVan. “That was the part that wasn’t even in the indictment—the stuff that they’re saying that he’s talking about are not in the indictment so he’s offering that along with everything else, and then they added those new people to the indictment. I think [after he comes home from jail] that he can make music and people can hear it, but the original core and base that he tapped into won’t rock.”
If you didn’t know, RICO, which stands for Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, is a federal law that allows prosecutors to charge suspects with crimes as a part of a criminal organization. 50 says the RICO charges 6ix9ine’s been hit with are facing are worse than any other kind of charge.
“When I get on the record with them, I’ll go, ‘I am not gang gang. I do not gang bang.’ Immediately, ‘cause I don’t like RICO,” Fif said, quoting lyrics from his Tekashi, Uncle Murda and Casanova song “Get the Strap.” “I don’t like conspiracy. Give me a homicide right now—I’ll take a homicide right now before you give me that.”
