Cardi B tonight denied any affiliation with a gang, after rapper Tekashi69 made the claim in his recent testimony.

This week the performer – real name Daniel Hernandez – was put on the stand in US federal court in which the rapper, who is currently in jail facing life imprisonment, testified against alleged former fellow gang members.

He turned on other members of the Nine Trey Blood gang – who were likely in the courtroom – implicating himself in the process, as part of a plea deal he entered into to cut down potential jail time on charges of racketeering.

In turn, he also named artist Cardi B during his trial on Thursday.

He testified he became a member of the gang in November 2017, and participated in violent crimes including shootings, assaults and drug trafficking.

During the third day of the trial, Tekashi69 – also known as 6ix9ine – testified Brooklyn rapper Cardi, who had previously spoken about her interaction with gangs when she was younger, had ties to the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang.



However, reps for Cardi told today the claims made against the Hustlers star are not true.

Earlier this year, Cardi spoke about her teenage years when she used to hang with members of a gang.

She said to GQ: When I was 16 years old, I used to hang out with a lot of… Bloods. I used to pop off with my homies. And theyd say, “Yo, you really get it poppin. You should come home. You should turn Blood.”

And I did. Yes, I did. And something that—its not like, oh, you leave. You dont leave.

When on the stand, Tekashi also denied he tried to mimic Cardis rise to fame.

I knew who she was. I didnt pay attention, he said of the star, according to Page Six.

Tekashi also alleged that Diplomats Jim Jones was a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

The 23-year-old was facing a minimum of 47 years and maximum of life in prison after being charged with nine federal counts, including racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offences and drug trafficking.

It is thought he sparked a deal after agreeing to speak in court over his claims that he was pistol-whipped, robbed and kidnapped in July 2018.
