While 6ix9ine sings like a canary on the witness stand, let's take a look at some of the most "loyal" criminals of all time.
As Tekashi snitch-nine wraps up his first day of testimony against former gang members of Nine Trey Bloods, it's important to remember that other major criminals in history have done the same thing but should still be considered more loyal than Tekashi.
The rapper took 2 hours today to snitch out his former affiliates, and he even went as far as to describe the clothes that his fellow gang members were wearing as he rattled off their names. Check out some of history's most loyal criminals below, and let's hope Tekashi will find safety within the witness protection program (but that might be hard, considering all those tattoos).
A legendary member of the Luccheese crime family between 1955 and 1980, Hill became an FBI informant in 1980, and he helped secure 50 convictions, including those of legendary mobsters Paul Vario and James Burke.
Tekashi's testimony included ratting out two fellow members of the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods, Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack and Anthony "Harv" Ellison, as he identified them in court in great detail, not out of a sense of justice but to save himself from a longer prison sentence.

If you're mad because "Batwoman was never black," there's something you need to know...
TV's newest incarnation of Batwoman, Ryan Wilder, is Black.
The CW's Batwoman has always had a progressive streak. In the first season, Orange Is the New Black alum Ruby Rose plays Kate Kane, Bruce Wayne's cousin who dons the Batwoman cowl to protect Gotham City. Just like every other superhero show, Kate's romantic life factors into the plot. Unlike the rest, however, Kate is an out lesbian, making her the first leading lesbian superhero in television history.
But after the first season, Ruby Rose announced that she was leaving Batwoman for unspecified reasons, allegedly related to burnout from the ridiculously long work hours required from a superhero series lead. This meant that in order for Batwoman to continue, the CW would need a new star.
Enter Javicia Leslie, former co-star of CBS comedy-drama God Unfriended Me. Prior to Leslie's casting, fans of the show wondered how Batwoman might handle the transition of actresses. Would Kate Kane just look completely different in season 2 with no canonical explanation?
Nope. As it turns out, Javicia Leslie's Batwoman will be an entirely new character: Ryan Wilder.
The rocker celebrates his 45th birthday today
Jack White almost became a priest.
But then again, did he? The iconic rocker has regularly beguiled the press. "I'd got accepted to a seminary in Wisconsin," he told 60 Minutes Mike Wallace back in 2005 in what seemed like a moment of genuine candor. "At the last second, I thought, 'I'll just go to public school."
Whether you believe that story or not, the blues-rock polymath, who turns 45 today, has led an undeniably punk life and crafted some of the most sacred rock music in history. Two decades after The White Stripes' self-titled debut, Jack White has remained purposefully slippery with the public. He told publications that he and Meg White, his then-wife and White Stripes-cohort, were the youngest of ten siblings and claimed that his label, Third Man Records, used to be a candy company, among other outlandish claims.
