Here’s another plot twist in the ongoing Tekashi 6ix9ine saga: The rapper was on the verge of getting shot—by his own inner circle.
The news comes by way of a transcript of a wiretapped phone conversation, obtained by TMZ. Federal agents had tapped his ex-manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan, Jamel “Mel Murda” Jones and an unidentified person as they were discussing the aftermath of their sudden dismissal by 6ix9ine. It wasn’t a happy call.
“[6ix9ine] is trying to dry snitch at the same time, homie,” Murda said, according to the transcript. To which Shotti laughingly replied, “Imma feed him though.” TMZ reports that the feds believe “feed” is slang for “unloading bullets.”
The mystery man in the convo threw even more fuel on the fire, calling on Shotti to “violate” 6ix9ine:
Unidentified Man: “[Shotti] gotta figure it out, but they gotta violate [6ix9ine].”
Unidentified Man: “If [6ix9ine] think he gonna be going to strip clubs and that type of shit, like, [Shotti] better get on his A-game.”
Murda: “They gonna be riding that n****. [Shotti] don’t got nothing to lose no more. This is all he have.”
Unidentified Man: “Well, he better get to violating and he better stalk [6ix9ine] every move.”
6ix9ine, Murda, Shotti and three other associates have been indicted with a slew of charges, including armed robbery and murder. The rapper has pleaded not guilty, and his trial is expected to begin on September 4, 2019.
