To Snitch Or Not To Snitch?

Posted by Vybz Queen on September 21, 2019 at 12:00 AM

Its a tale as old as time, snitches get stitches. 

Rapper Tekashi 69 has been all over social media lately due to his presence in a trial against his former gang members. Everyone seems to have an opinion stating would they or would they not snitch to get a lesser sentence. The rapper has been severely mocked and criticized by fans as well as other rappers.  If you were in his shoes, what would you do? 

The trial of Nine Trey Blood Gang members, Anthony “Harv” Ellison and Aljermiah “Nuke” Mack began on Monday, September 16th. Ellison is also being charged for the 2018 kidnapping and robbery of Tekashi69. Throughout the trial, the rapper has gone into extensive detail regarding the inner workings of the Nine Trey Blood gang. He has also identified members and given specific information surrounding their illegal activities which included drug distribution and shootings. The rapper has also incriminated himself stating that he attempted to have fellow rappers Trippie Redd and Casanova shot. He also confessed to involvement in the shooting of rapper Chief Keef.

The "FeFe" rapper has shockingly name-dropped rappers Jim Jones and Cardi B stating that they are known Blood gang members. He is now referred to as Snitch9. However he is receiving sympathy from some fans due to recent developments which proved his fellow gang members kidnapped him and tried to extort money from him. Tekashi's role in the gang was to be their bank. He funded their gang activites and upon deciding to stop they retaliated. Now are these people that you would remain loyal to? 

After getting arrested last year November on gun and racketeering charges the rapper secured a plea deal to get his possible 47 year sentence reduced to time served. It doesn't seem that he took part in actual gang activites so he can't be called a gangster. Many have been blaming him saying he should have known what he was getting into, however when faced with life behind bars what would you do? 

This can even be translated to other matters, if you see your friend's man with a different woman do you talk? If you catch your friend cheating on an exam, do you talk? 

Everyone can pass judgement when the shoe is on the other foot. If you were facing life in prison would you snitch on your friends, family, loved one? Be honest. Share your thoughts on this media blowup below.

I would talk. We have to think about if the shoes are on the other feet or if one of the victim was a family member

Well life in prison is a long time. I think many people would do anything to avoid it even if they won't admit it

I don't wrong him for snitching...why should he protect the members of the gang and they robbed and kidnapped him?

That is a long long long time. Anyone would crack under the pressure. Did they really expect him to remain silent especially when they wanted to kill him
