Release Tekashi69 — the stage name for Danny Hernandez — “crushed” is the informal code of silence ” that is typical of celebrity, accused, and talked about the gang’s ties in the entertainment industry during an appearance in New York City in the last month.

In the testimony of two alleged members of the Nine-Trey a East Coast wing of the United Blood Nation street gang, with the 23-year-old platinum-selling rapper with a detailed life of ‘ attacks and acts of violence [and] drugs,” leading to the conviction of the couple on the racketeering conspiracy, and other charges.

The game rapper, the evidence showed that the same gang-world kinship, which has helped in the promotion of the brand also came at a cost. Hernandez told the jury he was a member of the notorious gang, not only to earn credibility, but are, in part, to the support of his professional career in the limelight — and even to admit of the payment made by a fellow member to shoot a rival rapper was in New York City this past summer.

A short time after the shooting, Hernandez was a target for being kidnapped in the states, and escape only after it has run hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry, and claim not to be a part of the Nine-Trey. Hernandez testified at the trial last week that two of the suspects were kidnappers. He said that the two are reportedly looking at him as a “poser” and not a real gangster. Hernandez was also charged with racketeering, gun and drug charges, but in cooperation with the federal government.


Hernandez’s wild story, but it is far from being an isolated case, ” federal law enforcement officials told Fox News, pointing to a part of a dangerous trend in the entertainment industry.

“It’s almost a requirement these days to belong to a gang. It has become a part of pop culture, and put on the market. It is also an important part of an artist’s public relations campaign,” said one New York-based federal agent is entrusted with the task to infiltrate the gang and arrest its members. “It’s basically saying that the route that you need to have in order to join a gang in order to be successful. Thirteen-and 14-year-olds with impressionable minds can see that this is happening.”

Law enforcement officials told Fox News they’re in the entertainment business, but all too often it acts as a marketing machine that glorifies gang violence, and pushes it into the mainstream. The National Gang Center estimates that there around 850,000 gang members in the country as a whole. In the meantime, up to 80% of the gun murders in the capital cities of each of the years identified as being gang-related.
