West Coast rapper YG kept his promise of dropping new tunes. The hip-hop veteran came through last night with his hard-hitting “Stop Snitchin” single.
After mounted hype and speculation, YG released his subliminal record which takes direct aim at someone cooperating with law enforcement.
The song references someone cooperating with police and taking a plea deal at the cost of their friends freedom. It includes the lines: “Everybody went down ’cause you snitched/ Whoever raised you ain’t do a good job at that/ whoever raised you need to get slapped.” (The FADER)
Earlier this month, a screenshot had gone viral of YG calling jailed rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine a snitch during his Coachella music festival set.
Days prior, reports emerged about 6ix9ine possibly banking on major legal deals going down with his past and present affiliates to get out of jail before 2020.
Tekashi and his former manager, Shotti, have already pled guilty in their federal racketeering cases. However, there are still several other defendants tied to the case who are scheduled to go to trial this September. The hope for Tekashi and his attorneys is that all of the others also take deals — given the overwhelming evidence against them — so there would be no need for a trial at all. (TMZ)
To sweeten the situation, Tek’s lawyer believes his time served could ultimately help him get a free pass out of jail.
Here’s why that could be huge. Tekashi’s attorney, Dawn Florio, tells us if the other men strike plea deals and the trial is called off … they’ll ask a judge to grant 6ix9ine time served — he’s been locked up since November. If the judge grants it, he’d walk free because he’s fulfilled his obligations under his cooperation agreement with authorities. (TMZ)
