Hip-hop’s resident prison reform advocate, Meek Mill, caught wind that Tekashi 6ix9ine is set to testify against one of his associates who was reportedly involved in an attempted Chief Keef-related shooting last June. According to reports and video evidence, the Bronx rapper put out a hit on Chief Keef's cousin, Tadoe. However, Kintea McKenzie, the aforementioned associate, claimed that 6ix9ine paid him $10,000 to shoot the Chi-town rapper.
The Philly icon was released from prison last April and has been fervent about making changes within the criminal justice system. Upon hearing the news about the "STOOPID" emcee, Meek penned, "that’s a shame. When I came home, everybody was like 'he got some real dudes backing him,' [and] I was like how?"
In spite of the reports, the "What's Free" emcee stated that he "saw this coming." It's not exactly clear if he's attacking or defending 6ix9ine's decisions to testify or his associate catching a case, on behalf of the rapper.
It was previously made known that 6ix9ine's inner circle were behind that brutal attack and kidnapping and another associate, Anthony Ellison is in custody on those charges. This isn't the first time Meek has spoken about 6ix9ine or his current stint in prison. The New York native is facing life in prison for racketeering and other related charges.
