Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is testifying as the star witness in the government's racketeering case against two members of his old crew, the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
The trial in Manhattan federal court kicked off on Monday, and the rapper, born Daniel Hernandez, took the witness stand for two hours on Tuesday.
Outfits - Blue - Prison - Jumpsuit - Judge
He traded his usual loud outfits for a dark blue prison jumpsuit after the presiding judge issued a dress code.
Tekashi testified about the various acts of violence he says he witnessed while running with the gang, including shootings, assaults and drug trafficking.
Case - February - Deal - Prosecutors - Confidantes
He had pleaded guilty in the case in February and made a deal with prosecutors, agreeing to testify against his former confidantes, Anthony 'Harv' Ellison and Aljermiah 'Nuke' Mack, in exchange for avoiding a 47-year prison sentence.
On Tuesday he identified Ellison and Mack as Nine Trey gang members.
Ellison - Kidnapping - Tekashi - July - Nine
Ellison is charged with kidnapping and robbing Tekashi in July 2018 and of assaulting a different Nine Trey member last fall.
Mack is charged with dealing heroin and MDMA.
Jury - Clips - Tekashi - Music - Videos
The jury was shown clips from three of Tekashi's music videos, in which he raps about drugs, sex, murder.
Prosecutors say proceeds from his songs helped fund the gang's operations.
Tekashi - Gang - Initiation - Anyone
Tekashi testified that he never underwent a gang initiation or personally shot anyone.
He said the gang kept him around because of his lucrative career.
Tekashi - Testimony - Rap - Sheet
It's unclear how much weight Tekashi's testimony will have given his long rap sheet.
He is currently being housed in a federal facility for his own safety.
