6ix 9ine is currently in the hospital
Controversial up-and-coming rapper Tekashi69, aka 6ix 9ine, was allegedly kidnapped, assaulted, then robbed in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York.
According to TMZ, who talked to sources close to the “Gummo”rapper, 6ix 9ine was shooting a music video in Brooklyn early Sunday morning (July 22). As he was heading home, at around 4 o’clock in the morning, a car pulled up and blocked his driveway and three people with hoods, holding guns, grabbed the Brooklyn rapper, pistol whipped him and dragged him into their car.
Allegedly, the kidnappers threatened to kill him if he didn’t give up jewelry and cash. Two of the gunmen headed into the house, while 6ix 9ine’s daughter and baby mother were in the house.
TMZ says around $750k in jewelry and thousands of dollars was stolen.
The goons drove off with 6ix 9ine in the backseat, and, according to TMZ, the rapper was able to open the back door and jump out of the car.
