Troy Ave Thinks Jim Jones Should Have 6ix9ine Murdered
Troy Ave is sharing his thoughts on 6ix9ine's early release, which stems from Tekashi name-dropping and testifying against members of the Nine Trey Blood Gangstas during his trial last year.
During Troy's The Facto Show podcast on May 23, he explained that he doesn't think harm will come knocking on 6ix9ine's door. However, in the same breath, the 2014 XXL Freshman claims that based on street code, Jim Jones should have Tekashi murdered after snitching on the Dipset member's associate Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones during his trial for federal racketeering and firearms charges.
"If niggas are talkin’ ’bout the streets and the street codes and shit, well, what should happen, technically, is Jim Jones should have him murdered because he sent Jim Jones' man Mel Murda to jail," Troy Ave says. "And they're all Bloods and they're all in the gang shit. So, you know, gang shit gotta happen. It's fucked up. We'll see if it happens. I'll say the streets is a myth, ain't nothing gonna happen. It's fucked up, but it is what it is."
Back in September of 2019, Jim's name was mentioned during 6ix9ine's trial after the "Gooba" rapper reportedly identified the Harlem native as a member of the Nine Trey Blood Gangstas during his testimony. According to New York Daily News reporter Stephen Brown, in a wiretapped conversation that prosecutors reportedly played in court, Jim was heard saying that "shorty," presumably referring to 6ix9ine, needed to be "violated" in a phone call with Mel Murda.
Brown also claimed that Jones told Murda, "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 bullshit."
While Jim Jones never explicitly stated 6ix9ine's name, there was much speculation at the time that Tekashi is the person Jim was referring to following his testimonies against other Nine Trey Blood Gangsta Members Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack and Anthony "Harv" Ellison.
In April of 2019, Mel Murda, who allegedly served as the leader of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, pleaded guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy and one count of participating in a narcotics distribution conspiracy for selling a kilogram of fentanyl. He was sentenced to 135 months in prison back in October of 2019.
