Taking to Instagram, the Hip Hop mogul posted a meme which mockingly suggested that 6ix9ine had ratted on 21 Savage after being threatened with a lengthy jail sentence.
6ix9ine, who currently sits behind bars awaiting trial for multiple counts of racketeering and weapons charges after pleading guilty, has been accused of “snitching” on his former associates.
Meanwhile, 21 Savage is being held in federal custody after his recent arrest on immigration charges, as officials claim that he is a British citizen unlawfully residing in the U.S.
“This is the real King Of New York,” 50 Cent captioned the image, which has since been deleted.
“But ya’ll still gonna play his music so just chill alright. LOL,” he added.
50 Cent has made a habit of trolling 6ix9ine in the past, whilst frequently referring to the “DUMMY BOY” rapper as his biological son. The rapper has a tumultuous relationship with his actual biological son, his eldest, Marquise.
Tekashi 6ix9ine on January 23rd pleaded guilty in the federal racketeering case against him. There’s a drug charge as well, specifically centering on his plan to sell a kilogram of heroin (or, as the plea artfully puts it, “mixtures and substances containing a detectable amount of heroin”), and firearm offenses.
The 22-year-old artist faces a minimum of 47 years behind bars as of now, but it seems likely he’ll get less in exchange for his cooperation with the government. It also means that 6ix9ine is responsible only for what the Nine Trey Bloods did from when he met them in 2017, up until his arrest in 2018. His sentencing date is set for Jan. 24, 2020.
In related news, 21 Savage is reportedly being held in lockdown for ’23 hours a day’ with no television access and little contact with the outside world following his arrest.
Artists including Cardi B, J. Cole, Migos, Nicki Minaj and more have all spoken out in support of the ‘Bank Account’ rapper.
