Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods member Anthony “Harv” Ellison has been found guilty of kidnapping Tekashi 6ix9ine on July 22, 2018. Ellison was reportedly found guilty of racketeering conspiracy.
“No robbery or kidnapping or assault happened,” Ellison’s lawyer Devereaux Cannick said at the time. “[6ix9ine] was about to drop another album…gotta get that buzz up. That’s how he makes money.”
Cannick’s claims stood in stark contrast to the recording of what prosecutors alleged was a video of 6ix9ine’s kidnapping.
In the video, Tekashi pleads for Ellison to stop his attack. “Harv, I put money in your pocket, bro. I’m scared, bro,” 6ix9ine can be heard saying. “I don’t know. Ni**as be like extortion this, extortion that.”
