Rapper Tekashi69 Says Men Forced Him From Car, Stole Jewelry

6ix9ine was kidnapped, robbed, and hospitalized early Sunday morning, reports TMZ. When he arrived, someone reportedly pulled up in another vehicle and blocked his driveway.

Three gunmen wearing hoodie pounced on him then pistol whipped him and took him hostage in their vehicle. Tekashi was blocked in by another auto when he pulled up to his driveway and that's when 3 hooded gunmen suddenly got out of the vehicle, grabbed him and then knocked him unconscious after hitting him with a pistol, according to TMZ. This all occurred while his daughter and her mother were inside, but they weren't hurt. Once 6ix9ine regained consciousness, the men demanded money and jewelry or else they threatened to kill him. The men returned to 6ix9ine's home and two of them went inside with him, while one guarded the auto. The gunmen were able to take around $750k in jewelry and between $15k and $20k in cash from the house. At one point, he kicked open the back door and jumped out of the auto.

Tekashi then told cops he was forced to call someone inside his residence, so they could post his ransom, while wrapt by his kidnappers. One of the gunmen started to chase him but stopped because he was afraid he would later be recognized.

The gunmen drove off while Tekashi was in the backseat but he managed to jump out of the vehicle.

Tekashi is then said to have flagged down a passing driver, getting into the passenger's seat and begging them to call 911. The stranger called 911 - then promptly ask the roughed-up rapper to get out of the vehicle.

An ambulance picked him up and transported him to the hospital where he remains under observation.
