On Tuesday (Sept. 17), 6ix9ine appeared in a New York courtroom to testify in a federal case against two reputed Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack.

Many rappers in the hip-hop community are not supportive of 6ix9ine cooperating with the federal government, including Meek Mill. The Philadelphia rapper jumped on his Twitter account today to offer some advice to anyone seeking clout on social media.

“69 going up in s federal courthouse today kids! Message of the day don’t be a Internet gangsta... be yourself! #cloutisnottheroute get money,” Meek tweeted.

During his testimony in court, 6ix9ine reportedly mentioned that Trippie Redd, a former collaborator-turned-rival, was an ex-gang member.

"Trippie Redd was part of Five Nine Brims, Hernandez testifies," wrote reporter Matthew Russell Lee, who refers to Tekashi by his government name of Daniel Hernandez.

This part reportedly came while 6ix9ine was on the stand recounting his connection to the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods and more.
