RAPPER Tekashi 6ix9ine has sorted a “squeal deal” in a desperate bid to cut the amount of time he spends behind bars, new court documents reveal.
The bad boy is prepared to turn on his own gang mates after pleading guilty to nine federal charges, including firearms offences and racketeering.

The rainbow-haired star will take the stand against accused Anthony ‘Harv’ Ellison, 31, and Aljermiah ‘Nuke’ Mack, 33, in Manhattan federal court.
Ellison is accused of kidnapping Tekashi last July along with racketeering and gun charges. Mack is charged with narcotics trafficking and racketeering.
The news was revealed after the US Attorney sent a letter to the judge in the case, which includes testimony from the rapper who is behind bars after striking the deal.
According to the letter, the tattooed star will also implicate himself and fellow Nine Trey Gangsta Blood gang members in a conspiracy to harm a rival who wrote lyrics deemed critical of the rapper.
TMZ reveals the rapper will link individuals to “incriminating texts, social media posts, DMs, and other communications.”

The letter states Tekashi – real name Daniel Hernandez – was considered ‘bank’ for the gang and was responsible for doling out cash to the others.
The performer is currently in prison facing charges of racketeering, conspiracy, firearms offences and drug trafficking.
It had been reported he faced a minimum of 47 years in prison, but he could now get out a lot sooner in return for his cooperation.
He previously admitted to the Feds that he was a member of Nine Trey which “engaged in such activities including shooting at people, robbing people, and at times drug trafficking.”
TMZ speculates on his release from prison he would become a member of the witness protection programme, but points out that may be difficult given his distinctive face tattoos.
