Following a dramatic day in court in which 6ix9ine recalled details of his alleged July 2018 kidnapping at the hands of Anthony "Harv" Ellison and "Sha," dashcam footage of the incident has surfaced online viaNew York Daily News.

"I'm pleading with Harv," 6ix9ine told the court Wednesday of the incident. "I'm telling him, 'Don't shoot. I gave you everything. I put money in your pocket.' I told him that I was tired of being extorted."

Footage taken from inside the car (which the government previously said had been equipped to capture sound and video) shows the vehicle stopping, with Ellison and Sha telling 6ix9ine to exit. 

Driver Jorge Rivera is later seen calling the authorities to report that "my brother has just been kidnapped." Rivera then attempts to follow the vehicle that took 6ix9ine, with 6ix9ine telling the court that he was eventually able to escape from the vehicle and make it to a nearby police precinct to receive medical care. He later received a CAT scan at a Long Island hospital.

6ix9ine said Wednesday that former manager Kifano "Shotti" Jordan and others subsequently planned retaliation for the incident, which also saw the Dummy Boy artist offering the alleged kidnappers $100,000 and having jewelry stolen from his home.

Previously in court, an attorney for Ellison compared the incident to the one involving actor Jussie Smollett that dominated headlines earlier this year. 

"This whole thing about a kidnapping is a hoax," attorney Deveraux Cannick said. "It's a Jussie Smollett, if you will."

Thursday, 6ix9ine will take the witness stand again.
