Remember when Tekashi 6ix9ine got into it with J. Prince's Rap-A-Lot crew in Texas?
That led to a schism in the Nine Treys between his manager Shotti and Anthony "Harv" Ellison, who the feds say kidnapped and robbed 6ix9ine a few months later and who Tekashi is currently testifying against.
According to 6ix9ine's testimony, in March of 2018 he wasn't allowed to play a gig at SXWS in Austin, Texas because that's Rap-A-Lot turf and he didn't check in with the Prince family.
The no-show cost the Nine Trey's 15K and Ellison, who had become 6ix9ine's bodyguard, called Shotti a "pussy" for allowing that happen. Shortly after, Shotti fired Ellison.
Shotti and Tekashi did end up getting revenge on J. Prince and company without Ellison's help. In April of 2018, Prince and his crew showed up in New York. The Nine Treys robbed some of the Rap-A-Lot reps in a hotel lobby, with 6ix9ine sitting in the car and filming the incident. (Prosecutors played his video in court.)
After finishing the robbery, Shotti got nervous and kicked 6ix9ine out of the car, apparently worried his flamboyant look would be too easy to spot. The poor rainbow-haired troll rapper had to take the subway back to Brooklyn, looking over his shoulder with a handgun in his hoodie.
