Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine Kidnapped and Robbed in Brooklyn

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine has reportedly been hospitalized after being pistol whipped, kidnapped and robbed in Brooklyn on Sunday morning. According to TMZ, the performer was arriving home from a video shoot at around 4 a.m. when his car was boxed in and three hooded assailants jumped him. They allegedly hit him over the head with a pistol before dragging him into their vehicle and driving him around while they demanded he hand over his money and jewelry. They made off with about $750,000 worth of his jewelry and $20,000 in cash after raiding his house. The incident comes just weeks after another rapper, XXXTentacion, was shot and killed in Florida. XXXTentacion had reportedly warned Tekashi to “be safe” and “never let your guard down” just days before he died.
