Attorney: Tekashi69 kidnapping staged to hype album
He was just doing the kidnapping for the ‘Gram.
That was the argument Friday from an attorney for an accused member of the 9 Trey Bloods charged with kidnapping Tekashi69, whose success was fueled by social media.
Attorney Deveraux Cannick said the supposed kidnapping and robbery at gunpoint was actually “a production” meant to promote the rapper’s newly released single with Nicki Minaj, “FEFE.”
“No robbery or kidnapping or assault happened. Didn’t happen,” Cannick said after a hearing in federal court in Manhattan.
