Rapper and Bernie Sanders presidential campaign advocate Cardi B denied the accusation that she is a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang, a claim made by incarcerated rapper Tekashi 69.
While Cardi B made it clear that she has “never been” or had connections to the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang, she wrote that she is in fact a Blood.
“You just said it yourself …Brim not 9 Trey,” the rapper-activist wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “I never been 9 Trey or associated with them.”
According to TMZ, a representative for Cardi B denied that she is a member of the Bloods, saying “This is not true.”
Tekashi, who is on trial for racketeering, drug trafficking, and other crimes, claimed Thursday during a court appearance that fellow New York City rapper Jim Jones is a member of the notorious Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang.
Cardi B, of course, is a virulent critic of President Donald Trump. The rapper attacked Trump, saying “I hate him,” in April while endorsing Sanders’ presidential bid. She was featured in a July presidential campaign video from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The “Invasion of Privacy” rapper was praised by the White House hopeful who said, “She’s really smart.”
