Tekashi 6ix9ine pistol whipped, kidnapped and robbed in Brooklyn
Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine landed in the hospital after he was pistol whipped, kidnapped and robbed in Brooklyn early Sunday, according to reports.
The rainbow-maned performer — born Daniel Hernandez — was coming home a music video shoot in Brooklyn around 4 a.m. when his car was blocked in, according to TMZ.
Three hooded gunmen emerged, and one cold-clocked the rapper with a pistol before dragging him into their car. Then the goons took him for a ride and threatened to kill him if he didn’t fork over cash and jewelry.
They later returned to 6ix9ine’s Brownsville home — where his kid and baby mama were staying. Two of the kidnappers looted his house, taking $750,000 in jewelry and up to $20,000 in cash, while the the third guarded him in the car, TMZ reported.
The woman and child were reportedly not harmed.
6ix9ine was still in the car when the trio sped off, but he was able to climb out back door and hop into a stranger’s car at an intersection. The stranger called 911 — then promptly ask the roughed-up rapper to get out of the car.
He was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he is currently undergoing tests including a CT scan.
Photos circulating online show him lying in a hospital bed with his eyes closed, his left eyebrow and left cheekbone swollen.
The attack comes after months of the self-described “King of New York” bragging that he was untouchable.
“Look at my face — still untouched yo,” he brags in a video posted to YouTube in February following a fight at an airport. “Beautiful, luscious s–t.”
The 22-year-old rapper typically finds himself on the other side of the law — he was arrested at JFK Airport on July 11 on an outstanding warrant from Texas, where he allegedly choked a 16-year-old fan who was videotaping him.
And he was charged with assaulting a cop in May, after he “squeezed” the hand of a police officer arresting him for driving with a suspended license — causing “pain and swelling.”
The incident was downgraded from a felony to a misdemeanor on July 11, but 6ix9ine still faces up to a year if jail if convicted.
In 2015, he pleaded guilty to three felony counts of the use of a child in a sexual performance in New York Supreme Court after videos of him hooking up with a 13-year-old appeared online.
Rival rapper Chief Keef blames 6ix9ine for an attempt on his life outside the W Hotel on Broadway and 47th Street last month. Two gunmen opened fire on the Chicago-based rapper early June 2, but hit the hotel building instead.
6ix9ine’s reps did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
