Altogether, he spent nearly 2 hours on the stand - wearing blue prison scrubs, a white undershirt, and his trademark rainbow-colored hair styled in pigtails.In a courtroom potentially filled with current or former Nine Trey members, he testified that he became a member in November 2017, and participated in violent crimes, including shootings, assaults, and drug trafficking.
He outed several members of the gang.Directly in front of them. He nervously pointed at the defendants, Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack, and Anthony "Harv" Ellison, and ID'd them as Nine Trey Gang Members.
Other musicians shared their thoughts on Hernandez's cooperation...And many publicly disapproved, both of Tekashi's actions and his snitching... Because you know what they say - Snitches get stitches.
