Tekashi 6ix9ine recently got out of prison and released his song ‘Gooba’ with many in the hip-hop community voicing their displeasure. “They gotta stop pushing this [rat],” Snoop commented on an Instagram post by TIDAL’s chief content officer, Elliott Wilson. However, Snoop Dogg seems a bit hypocritical considering he is a former “rat” himself when he snitched in 1998 against Suge Knight and its paperwork that illustrates this, check out the video below.
Then it is a host of other rappers who have been accused of snitching. It is some valid stories that prove these claims whether you are discussing 50 Cent who filed an anonymous tip against Irv Gotti and Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff. 50 Cent also is alleged to have filed an order of protection against Ja Rule for stabbing him.
It’s a plethora of rappers who have cooperated with the police from Jim Jones when he was caught on a wiretap, Twista when his chain was stolen, to T.I. testifying in the murder case for Philant Johnson. Even Jay-Z employs former DEA informant Desiree Perez as the COO of Roc Nation. So you could almost make the argument that being a snitch had become the norm for rappers long before Tekashi 6ix9ine.
