"Did there come a time that Gummo was released on the Internet?"
Yes, it went viral. "Meaning, people shared it."
"I just put it up on YouTube and said, whatever happens, happens."
6ix9ine also testified on flipping the day he was arrested, not being properly initiated into Tre3way, and what the set did for him and he did for them.
Q: were you a member of a gang?— Inner City Press (@innercitypress) September 17, 2019
Yes. The Nine Trey Bloods.
Q: what sort of things did 9 Trey do?
Robberies, assaults, drugs...
Q: do you recognize anyone in court?
A: Anthony Ellison has a gray suit on. Mack has a brown suit on.
6ix9ine: to be initiated you had to do work. Like, cutting someone's face.— Inner City Press (@innercitypress) September 17, 2019
Mr Hernandez, but you were not initiated, right.
Right. I just had to keep making hits and giving financial support to the gang. Equipping with guns. Like, so they could buy guns
So what did you get from Nine Trey?— Inner City Press (@innercitypress) September 17, 2019
"I would say my career. Credibility. Protection. All of the above."
Trey Way was something what we could market.
Q: Could you demonstrate the handshake?
A: I need two people, but...
According to 6ix9ine, Mel Murda ran the set, with his ex-manager Shotti right below him:

"Mel Murda was the godfather. Right under was Shotti... Seiko Billy was a five star."'
Judge Engelmayer: I'm looking for a stopping point. (He said it will end at 4 pm, in 5 minutes.) Story soon - after the lawyers' arguments if any
Mel Murda is also a rapper who used to go by Mel Matrix and was a part of Jim Jones's Byrd Gang crew.
