6ix9ine, who is currently incarcerated in New York, is facing several felonious charges, including racketeering. Subsequently, federal agents have been monitoring his activity and discovered his ex-crew members were potentially plotting 6ix9ine’s demise.
6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, is reportedly concerned about the prosecutors’ confidential informant — and some people believe Akademiks is the one feeding the authorities information. Aks, of course, adamantly denies it.
“[I have] zero connection to this criminal case against Daniel Hernandez and other co-defendants,” he told TMZ. “I view them as good people to me. All these charges are a shock to me and do not involve me. I have never been questioned or much less cooperated in this. I am just a news reporter.”
On Wednesday (November 28), Aks went on a tirade denying any involvement in the case.
“So this website runs it and idiots, everybody, took that and resourced it,” he explained on Twitch. “That’s what niggas are really bad at. Look, 6ix9ine fired Shotti and TreyWay, what the fuck is all of this? The thing is people believe that because people have been salivating for when 6ix9ine gets beat.”

The confidential informant the feds are working with in #6ix9ine's racketeering case is still a mystery. Despite online rumors that it's a popular hip-hop blogger close to the rapper. #DJAkademiks has been accused by another hip-hop blog of being the "snitch" in 6ix9ine's crew … but Akademiks says it's completely untrue. He says he "has zero connection to this criminal case against Daniel Hernandez & other co-defendants. I view them as good people to me." He adds … "All these charges are a shock to me and do not involve me. I have never been questioned or much less cooperated in this. I am just a news reporter." He also went on #Twitch App to vent about the story. Do you think he is telling the truth? 🤔👇🏾*SWIPE LEFT* #MyMixtapez
The outlet Akademiks is referring to claims it got the information from 6ix9ine’s ex-manager Kifano “Shotti” Jordan. Shotti’s lawyer, Scott Leemon, denies that ever happened.
“I never made any public statement relating to this matter,” Leemon told TMZ. “Any statement attributed to me is false. I have not given anyone an interview about this case.”
6ix9ine is currently being held in a New York institution and so far, hasn’t been granted bail. A judge set his trial for September 4, 2019.
