50 Cent On Tekashi 6ix9ine: 'He's Gonna Tell On Everything'
50 Cent has weighed in on Tekashi 6ix9ine’s plea deal, saying that he thinks the rapper is going to "tell on everything." During an interview with DJ Drama and Sarah Vivan of Shade 45, the rapper explained, "6ix9ine’s not from the street. With 69, his imaging was stronger than the music, because middle America, people that are actually purchasing hip-hop music—they can dye their hair blonde and then dye their hair those colors. … Hip-hop allows you to be on a safari and get close enough to the animals without being in danger, and they see him in the safari, in the middle of the whole pack, cooking."
He then addressed his influence on 6ix9ine, saying, "What 69 saw from me was over time. He was doing it in such a short window that it was commanding a different level of attention. And then culturally, they saying ‘gang gang gang.’ 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. I don’t like conspiracy. Give me a homicide right now—I’ll take a homicide right now before you give me that."
50 went on to break down the RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) laws, which is a major part of 6ix9ine’s case. He said, "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. 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."
