New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine might have dodged death by getting arrested. New reports claim the hip-hop newcomer’s former affiliates had plans to possibly take him out.

According to reports, Tek’s former pals likely planned on having him killed following a publicized split.

The feds wiretapped Jamel Jones — gang name, Mel Murda — a former member of 6ix9ine’s inner circle, who is now behind bars. During the convo, Jones says, “[Tekashi] is trying to dry snitch at the same time, homie. But he keep saying, f*** Treway, f*** that n****, Treyway. Ain’t no n****, Treway. F*** Treway.” Tekashi’s former manager Kifano Jordan, aka Shotti, responds with laughter and says, “Imma feed him though.” (TMZ)

The main issues appeared to stem from Tek wanting to distance himself from his entourage.

Tekashi’s former crew members were also recorded saying how Tekashi tried to separate himself from the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods after firing his entire staff. The feds recorded an unnamed crew member saying, “That’s cool. Now he gotta get violated.” Jones replied, “Yeah, super violated. Super duper. Ain’t no much he could really do unless he run around with 100 armed securities all day.” (TMZ)

Recently, New York rapper French Montana weighed-in on 6ix9ine’s legal troubles.

“First of all, you can’t say you’re the King of New York while JAY-Z’s still alive. I’m not saying you said it, I’m saying you can never say you’re the King of New York while JAY-Z’s still alive. Let’s get to Nas. Look at Nas. But I feel like where he’s at, he reminds me of me and Max B. That Coke Wave days. Max got 75 years in jail. You know anybody in life that got 75 years in jail? Exactly – one thing about Max and me too when we were doing the Coke Wave DVDs, when Max was doing it while people loved him. Max was fighting with Jim because whatever situation they had, a contract – but me, just being, what would you do for your guy? You stand by him, right? So Max B was fighting for his freedom, whatever him and Jim Jones had going on. So people understood, that’s what he was telling people what was going on – in this one [with 6ix9ine], you don’t even know what he’s fighting for. And I love 6ix9ine, shout-out to his family – Fat Joe was telling him. He was giving me the same messages. Fat Joe was the one who walked me into Funkmaster Flex. … I had to learn.” (Bootleg Kev)

This week, 6ix9ine appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to a slew of federal charges.

The judge set his trial date for September 4. That’s a long way off and, at least for now, it seems 6ix9ine will remain behind bars for much of that period … if not all of it. The issue of bail was not addressed in court. As we reported, his attorney, Lance Lazzaro, plans to apply for bail directly to the trial judge. Tekashi was denied bail when Lazzaro offered to pay $750k, surrender his passport and remain on house arrest. (TMZ)
