5 Famous Snitches and Celebrity Rats

Published

on

The five famous snitches show that celebrity rats are just like the rest of them.

5. 50 Cent

It takes one to know one according to Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson whose now accusing rapper Jim Jones of also being a snitch. According to 50 Cent, the only way Jim Jones could have avoided prison after being caught on the phone telling an associates of the Nine Trey Bloods to “super violate” former Nine Trey Bloods associate Daniel Hernandez a.k.a. Tekashi69 a.k.a. 6ix9ine would have been to become a rat. Tekashi69 was recently released from federal prison after ratting on several Nine Trey Bloods members that are no doubt serving decades in prison because of Hernandez.

4. Tim Allen

Before Tim Allen made it big in Hollywood as the star of Home Improvement on ABC, he was a drug dealer in Kalamazoo, Michigan that turned informant after being caught with just over 650 grams of cocaine in 1978. Tim’s bust could not have come at a worse time as far as the state of the law was concerned in Michigan where the state had just passed a law that upped prison sentences for “more than 650 grams” of cocaine or heroin to life in prison. By agreeing to become a snitch for the feds, Allen was able to avoid a life term by getting his case moved to federal court where the sentencing guidelines at that time were not nearly as harsh.

3. Lil’ Cease

Over the years rat rapper Lil’ Cease a.k.a. James Lloyd went from claiming he was not a rat to apologizing to Lil’ Kim for among other things testifying against her at her perjury trial. When Lil’ Kim was suspected of lying to a grand jury about her involvement in a 2001 shooting, the feds subpoenaed anyone they thought might testify as to the alleged false statements made by Kim. The testimony of those witnesses led to her 2005 conviction and one-year prison sentence. Cease was one of those people. In 2005 Cease publicly admitted to ratting out Kim but at the same time denied being a snitch even though his entire argument to those ends included an admission that he did in fact snitch on her by testifying against her in court.

2. Al Sharpton

Reverend Alfred Charles Sharpton Jr. said, “I’m not a rat, I’m a cat” when he admitted to being a rat that can’t tell the difference between a rat and a cat. A rat that wore a wire on members of the Genovese Family in the 1980s, was caught on camera nodding when an FBI agent offered him a cut of future drug sales and helped investigate boxing promoter, Don King. Sharpton tries to present himself as some kind of victim.

1.Tekashi 69

Rat rapper Tekashi69 a.k.a. 6ix9ine whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, is no longer in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons according to the BOP website. He made the news a couple of weeks ago asking to be released early due to the risk of coronavirus. He was facing 47 years but got a plea offer of 13 months served for snitching on several members of the Nine Trey Bloods.
