Yesterday (Sept. 18), Hernandez, who identified himself as formerly apart of the Nine Trey Bloods, brought up a wiretapped phone conversation between the gang’s “godfather” Jamel “Mel Murda” Jones and Harlem rapper, Jim Jones.
According to New York Daily News reporter Stephen Brown, Jones was heard during a wiretapped phone call stating that “shorty” needed to be “violated.”
As the tape continued to play, Brown says Jones reportedly told Mel Murda the following: “He’s not a gang member no more. He was never a gang member. They going to have to violate shorty because shorty is on some bull–it.”
Though there were no names stated, “shorty” is reportedly to be 6ix9ine.
6ix9ine referred to Jim Jones as a retired rapper and member of the Nine Trey Bloods.
Matthew Russell Lee, a reporter for the Inner City Press, has been live-tweeting from the courtroom of the Manhattan’s Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse.
