New York rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine knows he has a guardian angel watching him. The self-proclaimed “King of New York” has reflected on nearly having his life taken from him.
Tek went to Instagram Sunday (July 22) to speak on Sunday’s headline-generating attack and likened the situation to last month’s XXXTentacion murder robbery.

According to reports, Tek fell victim to a physical assault and kidnapping early Sunday following a Brooklyn 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.
