Nick Cannon is weighing in on the Tekashi 6ix9ine situation once again and says that he believes that it's possible Tekashi had been working with the feds the entire time that he was in the spotlight.

"I do believe there's being a message sent to America," Cannon tells DJ Vlad. "First of all, when I joke and say 'Donnie Brasco' and Tekashi was probably the FBI the entire time, let's just talk about the FBI for a second. The way this is all broken down, they needed to get an entire community. So the way to get that is through stunting. The music industry. Showing what they can do. And they will use this kid that has a lot of attention to take down that entire community."

Before 6ix9ine's arrest, there were whispers about him possibly being an "industry plant," something his arrest and subsequent trial helped to fuel.

"The FBI are the masterminds," Cannon continued. "The law enforcement. The police department who want to put Black men in cages. If he wasn't an FBI agent, there was an FBI agent very close by."
