As Tekashi admitted in court Tuesday, he chose to cooperate with authorities a mere 24 hours after being arrested past year in connection with the case against Nine Trey gang members.

Asked what he got in return, the 23-year-old rapper responded: "My career. The videos, the music, the protection - all of the above".

Tekashi 6ix9ine took the stand on Tuesday to testify against his kidnappers and notes from his testimony are already going viral.

The testimony in federal court in Manhattan was a dramatic turnabout for a performer who had gone out of his way to portray himself as a legitimate gang member. During his hearing, Tekashi says he was never initiated into the gang but said that they wanted to keep him making hits to bankroll various illegal activities.

Though he faces up to 47 years in prison, Tekashi could get a more lenient sentence due to his cooperation.

TMZ reports 6ix9ine "nervously" identified Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack and Anthony "Harv" Ellison in the courtroom.

Ellison and Mack are described as high-ranking members of Nine Trey, but have denied allegations of rackateering and drug and gun charges. He said that he started cooperating with the feds the day after he was arrested on racketeering charges in November 2018.

The "Break 6ix9ine out of jail" Facebook group was founded by someone using the name TR3YWAY and shows December 12 as the date of the "event", though the post mainly is a place for fans to comment their support. He also pointed out gang members who were in the court and revealed that rapper Trippie Redd is a member of the Bloods gang.

He said this is when he met Shottie. who became Tekashi's manger.
