6ix9ine’s Former Manager Shotti Admits He Shot Five People in One Night in Recorded Conversation: Report
As the trial of 6ix9ine's former associates Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack nears its end, new details about the alleged criminal exploits of the rapper's former manager, Kifano "Shotti" Jordan, have reportedly surfaced.
On Thursday (Sept. 26), Inner City Press reporter Matthew Russell Lee described audio of a Shotti and 6ix9ine conversation that was reportedly played in the courtroom in Manhattan's Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse today.
The audio was reportedly recorded by 6ix9ine's former driver Jorge Rivera, who also worked as an informant for the government after being arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). In the recording, Shotti reportedly tells the rapper that he once shot five people in one night for Jamel "Mel Murda" Jones, who is a high-ranking Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods member.
"Now US Attorney is playing audio that driver Jorge Rivera, cooperating with government after picked up on immigration charges, recorded of Shotti telling #6ix9ine, we got to kill somebody, I drive around with a semi-automatic rifle,"reporter Matthew Russell Lee tweeted. "In the recording (by Jorge Rivera), Shotti says he shot five people in one night for Mel Murda. Shotti: 'I earned my stripes.'"
This isn't the first time audio of Shotti speaking with Nine Trey members leaked online. Earlier this week, audio leaked of Shotti discussing something that U.S. government prosecutors believe proves he was planning to shoot 6ix9ine. Speaking to Mel Murda shortly after 6ix9ine's November 2018 interview on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club, Shotti can be heard saying he plans to "feed" Tekashi—which U.S. prosecutors say means he planned to shoot the rapper.
The trail for Ellison and Mack is expected to end today.
