JAY-Z & 21 Savage's Lawyer Joins Tekashi 6ix9ine's Case

Tekashi 6ix9ine needs all of the legal help he can get. His plan to curry favor with the Feds by snitching on everyone was dealt a blow yesterday when a lawyer for Anthony "Harv" Ellison, who's accused of kidnapping and robbing 6ix9ine in a notorious inside job attack, told reporters Harv will go to trial and force 6ix9ine to take the stand.

If all of 6ix9ine's co-defendants took pleas -- and so far all but two have -- Tekashi's legal team believes the judge will let 6ix9ine go home with a pat on the back for his help after his next court appearance in early 2020. Now that Ellison is leaning toward his day in court that arrangement is in jeopardy.  A trial would also force 6ix9ine to be a rat in public, which could be damaging if 6ix9ine attempts to resume his Hip Hop career.

Perhaps in anticipation of this unfortunate twist, 6ix9ine has beefed up his legal team with Alex Spiro.

If you recognize that name, it's because Spiro was the lawyer JAY Z hired on 21 Savage's behalf when the British-American rapper was dealing with his visa problems earlier this year.

There's no indication Hov is footing the bill this time.
