Harlem rapper Jim Jones was caught on a wiretapped phone call telling a godfather of the Nine Trey Bloods they “best get to violating” Tekashi69 as the rainbow-haired trash-talker distanced himself from the gang.
Tekashi, testifying Thursday for the government under a cooperation agreement, said that Jones is a member of Nine Trey. Later, under cross-examination, Tekashi said that Bronx rapper Cardi B is also in the Bloods gang.
In the wiretapped phone call on Nov. 17, Jones and Jamel “Mel Murda” Jones discuss their anger at Tekashi’s comments denouncing the Bloods during a radio interview on Power 105. The men said that Tekashi had humiliated high-ranking Bloods member Kifano “Shotti” Jordan, who had acted as the Brooklyn rapper’s manager.
