During an appearance on The Cruz Show on L.A.’s 92.3 radio station, Jones was discussing which new rappers he likes, including Lil Baby and Gunna. However, when host J Cruz mentioned he liked a few 6ix9ine songs, Jones resolutely disagreed.
“We can't,” he said. “[6ix9ine’s] history is erased. We not even gon' say what we liked or what we [don't like]. Screw him. He did some actions that he can't come back from, so his name non-mentionable.”
Cruz then asked if 6ix9ine could step foot in New York again. “I don't know what he could do,” Jones replied. “I don't give a fuck what he could do. That's not my job. If he did step foot in there, they should stay far away from him. I grew up in [an] era where certain things...you cannot come back from. It's not fixing that. You black, you black forever. You a rat, you a rat forever. Ain't no coming back from that. So, that's a subject that we don't even have to touch on.”
By early June, seven of the case's 11 defendants had pleaded guilty. The most recent plea, back at the beginning of May, was Fuguan “Fubanger” Lovick, who admitted to letting off a shot inside the Barclays Center the night of an Adrien Broner fight in April 2018. On June 6, the complicated 6ix9ine racketeering case got even more thorny, with the introduction of a new suspect and removal of an existing one.
