Tekashi69 was kidnapped, pistol whipped and robbed and is now in the hospital … TMZ has learned.
Sources close to Tekashi tell us, the rapper was working on a music video in Brooklyn early Sunday morning and at around 4AM he wrapped for the night and drove home. 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.
Our sources say a short time later, the gunmen pulled up to Tekashi’s home and 2 of them made their way inside as the third guarded 69 inside the vehicle.
We’re told the gunmen took around $750k in jewelry and between $15k and $20k in cash. While all this was happening, Tekashi’s baby mama and daughter were inside the house but not hurt.
That wasn’t the end of it. 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.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, they have reached out to Tekashi and his people for information but they are not cooperating.
