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.
