Rapper Fat Joe tried to warn Tekashi 6ix9ine about the pending jail time he could possibly face due to his alliance with the Bloods gang, during an interview on his podcast "Coca Vision" nine months ago.
"I have to tell you right, you've seen what happened to Bobby Shmurda," Joe said.
Shmurda was sentenced to seven years in 2016 for possession of weapons.
"These people, these policemen tried to install me so many times," said Joe. "They did not like who I was, who I was defending … They wanted to get me … a million percent of what they are plotting on you."
Tekashi faces extortion charges and gang-related firearms as an alleged member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
He was recently relocated to the Brooklyn Metropolitan Detention Center after his life was threatened and his new album was reportedly postponed.
