“Where was the loyalty when you was sleeping with my baby mother?” asks 6ix9ine. “Where was the loyalty when you were caught on the wire tap trying to kill me? Where was the loyalty when you tried to kidnap my mother? Where was the loyalty when you were stealing millions of dollars from me? Where was that? Who broke it first? I get it. Don’t fight fire with fire. I’m sorry. But what did I do wrong? Be loyal to n****s that’s fuckin my baby moms? Be loyal to n****s that kidnapped me, beat the sh*t out of me on video? I’m supposed to be loyal to that?”
