Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was reportedly kidnapped, pistol-whipped and robbed early Sunday, and is currently recovering in a hospital.
According to TMZ, the 22-year-old had returned home following a music video shoot in Brooklyn when he was confronted by three hooded men blocking his driveway. The men pistol-whipped 6ix9ine, knocking him unconscious, and proceeded to load him into the back of their vehicle. Once he regained consciousness, the men demanded money and jewelry or else they threatened to kill him. TMZ reports that 2 of the men made their way inside of 6ix9ine’s home and robbed him of $750,000 in jewelry and between $15,000 and $20,000 in cash. The rapper’s baby mother and daughter were inside the home but no one was hurt.
The gunmen then drove away with 6ix9ine still in the vehicle, and at some point, he was able to open the door and jump out of the car. One of the men attempted to chase him down before returning to the vehicle and speeding off. 6ix9ine was able to flag another vehicle, who called 911.
He is currently in the hospital.
