6ix9ine hospitalized after reportedly being pistol-whipped, kidnapped and robbed

Tekashi 6ix9ine has a new song out but that will be overshadowed by news that he was robbed and kidnapped. When he arrived, another auto blocked his driveway.

Three hooded gunmen emerged, and one cold-clocked the rapper with a pistol before dragging him into their vehicle.

'We're told the next thing Tekashi knew, he was in the back seat of the vehicle as the gunmen were driving around, telling him if they didn't get what they wanted from him they would kill him, ' the publication reported, before the men allegedly raided his house. Once 6ix9ine regained consciousness, the men demanded money and jewelry or else they threatened to kill him.

According to the sources' account, the first thing Tekashi remembers is waking up in the back seat of the vehicle. They were demanding him to hand over cash and jewelry.

His daughter and the child's mother are said to have been in the house at the time of the robbery but remained unharmed.

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 auto.

The gunmen and Tekashi returned to the rapper's home and two of them reportedly ran through his home and took up to $750,000 jewelry and almost $20,000 in cash. Sources told TMZ he managed to get one of the rear passenger doors open and escape from the vehicle. One of the gunmen momentarily gave chase but retreated. A source told the outlet that Tekashi then jumped into the back seat of a stranger's vehicle and asked for help. The rapper was taken to the hospital.

Various tests, including CT scans, are being performed, according to TMZ.
