According to reports, 6ix9ine has allegedly "dropped a dime" on one of his associates and named him in a Chief Keep shooting investigation.
Tekashi 6ix9ine is currently in jail awaiting trial in September following his arrest on multiple charges including racketeering, but reports are suggesting the 'Dummy Boy' rapper has worked with police on naming a suspect in a shooting incident involving fellow rapper Chief Keef.
Kintea McKenzie was reportedly indicted on charges realting to the shooting after 6ix9ine allegedly named him as the gunman - this news coming just days after 6ix9ine's lawyer was removed from his case by a judge over a possible conflict of intrest.
Sources told TMZ that 6ix9ine had "dropped a dime" on his associate and that 'McKenzie was allegedly paid $10k to shoot Chief Keef', whilst a video of 6ix9ine appearing to order the hit surfaced online shortly after the rapper's arrest at the end of 2018.
Following the news that 6ix9ine had reportedly provided police with McKenzie's name, 'Going Bad' rapper Meek Mill took to Twitter to express his feelings on the situation.
He wrote, 'That’s a shame. when I came home everybody was like he got some real dudes backing him “I was like how” y’all better stop running behind rappers acting like y’all ready to throw y’all lives away over some stupid shit ..I seen this coming a while ago'.

Meek Mill spent a year in prison after violating his parole back in 2017, however he was released in April 2018 after questions were raised about the conduct of the judge residing over his intital trial.
Following his jail term, Meek Mill has become a strong voice on issues surrounding legal proceedings in America and he's previously addressed 6ix9ine's case during an interview.
Meek previously said, "I'd hit him like that shit you doing is stupid at this point. I know you might have got on from doing it and it worked out to be able to make some money. But I think you need to slow down. The world will deliver the energy that you're putting out. You're delivering a gangster type of energy. He locked up in the middle of some sh*t. You gave that energy, you kinda get that energy back."
