NEW YORK (WPIX) -- Two men have been convicted in a federal case featuring the testimony of rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine.

The verdict Thursday came at a Manhattan trial where he was a star government witness against fellow members of a violent faction of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

The rapper, whose legal name is Daniel Hernandez, testified that he joined the gang to give him street credibility in exchange for a cut of his music industry earnings. He described being abducted and robbed at gunpoint after having a falling out with one of the defendants.
