Tekashi 69 Hospitalised After Being Kidnapped, Pistol-Whipped And Robbed by Unknown Men

The Brooklyn-born rapper known as 6ix9ine, formerly Tekashi69, says he was forced from a vehicle at a Bedford-Stuyvesant intersection and robbed early Sunday. Last night, after shooting a music video, the rapper was in hospital after being robbed, TMZ report. Upon waking up in the back of the auto, the kidnappers reportedly demanded money and said they would kill Tekashi if he didn't pony up.

Around $750k (£571k) in jewellery and between $15k (£11k) and $20k (£15k) in cash was reportedly taken from the premises, while Tekashi's partner and their daughter were reportedly inside the property but unhurt.

The group then drove away with him still in the back seat. Sources told The Post he was wearing a $750,000 chain - which got swiped during the alleged stickup, along with approximately $15,000 to $20,000 in cash. The suspects drove off with the rapper in the vehicle, but he was able to exit and report the crime to police.

Nicki then makes her entrance into Tekashi's mythical world and plays in a pool of balloons, while getting close with 6ix9ine. It was then he escaped and was able to jump into the passenger seat of a driver driving by. He was taken to Kings County Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He asked the driver to call 911, who did, but then asked him to get out of the auto and wait at an intersection for the ambulance. "Doctors are performing various tests, including a CT scan".

The near-death attack went down just hours after Tek released his new Nicki Minaj-featured "FeFe" single. It follows shortly after 6ix9ine was arrested in Texas on charges related to an incident in which he allegedly choked a 16-year-old boy in a Houston mall.
