New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is on the road to recovery. The rap rookie is reportedly receiving medical treatment after being kidnapped and physically assaulted.
According to reports, the attack went down Sunday (July 22) morning once he returned home from a Brooklyn music video shoot.
We’re told when he got there another car pulled up and blocked his driveway.
Our sources say that’s when 3 hooded gunmen got out of the other car, grabbed Tekashi and pistol whipped him … knocking him unconscious. We’re told the next thing Tekashi knew, he was in the back seat of the car as the gunmen were driving around, telling him if they didn’t get what they wanted from him — jewelry and money — they would kill him.

The criminals eventually made their way into Tek’s crib taking nearly $1 million in jewelry and cash with his family inside.
We’re told the gunmen then drove away with Tekashi still in the back seat. At some point 69 was able to open the back door and jumped out. One of the gunmen began chasing him but got scared and retreated because he was afraid he’d be ID’d.Our sources say Tekashi jumped in the passenger seat of a stranger’s vehicle and pleaded for help. The stranger called 911 and then asked 69 to get out of the car at an intersection. An ambulance came and Tekashi was taken to a hospital, where he remains. Doctors are performing various tests, including a CT scan. (TMZ)
The near-death attack went down just hours after Tek released his new Nicki Minaj-featured “FeFe” single.

Heading into the weekend, Tek promised the new anthem would easily land on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
“Yo, I don’t think y’all understand how hard ‘FeFe’ is. This sh*t drops on Sunday. It’s so hard I want to drop this sh*t today. Remind you, I’m in no beef right now. I’m in no beef. I’m into no type of publicity. Watch this sh*t go eight for eight on Billboard – I just want to see what y’all are gonna say. Watch it go Billboard. Watch it go. I’m excited. I can’t wait for y’all to see this sh*t.”
