Unfortunately, the rumor is that DJ Akademiks, a friend of 6ix9ine as well as a media personality has been named the “snitch” in the Brooklyn rappers case.

 

According to TMZ the confidential informant who has been reporting to the FEDS still remains a mystery and is NOT Akademiks

 

Akademiks told TMZ that the rumors are completely untrue and that he “has zero connection to this criminal case against Daniel Hernandez & other co-defendants. 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."

 

While many are saying that the information accusing Akademiks comes from ‘Shotti,’ Tekashi 6ix9ine’s former manager, ‘Shotti’s’ lawyer says the claims are not true.

 

Scott Leemon, ‘Shotti’s’ lawyer made a statement saying: “I never made any public statement relating to this matter. Any statement attributed to me is false. I have not given anyone an interview about this case."

 

DJ Akademiks took to Instagram to clarify his involvement, or lack thereof regarding Teksahi 6ix9ine.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ - The confidential informant the feds are working with in Tekashi 6ix9ine's racketeering case is still a mystery ... despite online rumors that it's a popular hip-hop blogger close to the rapper. DJ Akademiks has been accused by another hip-hop blog of being the "snitch" in 6ix9ine's crew ... but Akademiks tells TMZ 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." The outlet accusing Akademiks of snitching claims to have gotten its info from the lawyer of Tekashi's Shotti. However ... Shotti's lawyer, Scott Leemon, also denies the allegations. Leemon tells us ... "I never made any public statement relating to this matter. Any statement attributed to me is false. I have not given anyone an interview about this case." We broke the story ... Shotti is one of the voices heard on federal wiretaps revealing Tekashi's former crew members talked about killing him. These recordings are separate from the ones feds say are possessed by the confidential informant ... which have yet to be disclosed. 6ix9ine's lawyer told us feds having an informant is concerning, but he believes any recorded convos with the rapper will help prove he's innocent.
