Who Kidnapped Tekashi69? Details Rapper 6ix9ine Kidnapped And Robbed, And Who The Suspects Are

Rapper Tekashi69, or 6ix9ine, was hospitalized over the weekend after he was kidnapped, robbed, and pistol-whipped.

The 22-year-old rainbow-haired rapper from Brooklyn reportedly finished working in the studio around 4 a.m. Sunday before he was pistol-whipped in his own drivewayTMZ reported. The hit knocked him unconscious and when he awoke he was in a car with three other men who demanded money and jewelry from him.

The gunmen threatened to kill 6ix9ine — whose real name is Daniel Hernandez — if he didn't give them what they wanted. The vehicle pulled up to 6ix9ine's home and two of the kidnappers went inside to rob the place while another stayed behind with the rapper.

TMZ reported that the gunmen stole around $750,000 in jewelry and between $15,000 and $20,000 in cash but it didn't end there.

The thieves drove off with 6ix9ine still in the vehicle but he reportedly found a way to open the door and hop out. One of the gunmen chased him on foot briefly but decided to flee rather than pursue the rapper.

6ix9ine jumped in the passenger seat on a stranger's vehicle and begged for help. The police were called and the stranger asked the rapper to get out of the vehicle at an intersection.

An ambulance arrived and transported 6ix9ine to a hospital where multiple tests including a CT scan were performed. He is still hospitalized but his baby mama, Sara, is scared for his life.

“Sara is truly terrified that something terrible is going to happen to Daniel,” a source close to Sara told Hollywood Life. “He’s beefing with so many people now that it feels like it can only end badly.”

So who is 6ix9ine? Here is everything you need to know about the rapper who was kidnapped and robbed. 

1. '69' is more than a number to him.

"I never lost sense of where I came from. That’s what makes me 69," 6ix9ine revealed in a post on Instagram. "The true meaning of 69 is just because you’re right doesn’t mean I’m wrong YOU JUST HAVENT SEEN LIFE FROM MY PERSPECTIVE. Turn the 6 upside down it’s 9 but remains the same in a different perspective. Open your mind and heart."

He has the number tattooed all over his body, including his face.

2. He has a daughter.


6ix9ine shares a daughter with former girlfriend Sara, who he lives with. 
The rapper most recently posted a video with his little girl, Saraiyah, where he talks about haters while holding her and has featured his little one on his Instagram multiple times.

3. He has a beef with Chief Keef.


6ix9ine has beef with a lot of people but his feud with Chief Keef seems to be the most outstanding and may have gotten Chief Keef shot.

The "Gummo" rapper dissed Chief Keef on Instagram by saying he was "p-ssy" if he didn't kill him within 48 hours. He basically baited his rival by telling Chief Keef he was in NYC.

When Chief Keef showed up in NYC the next day he was shot, but 6ix9ine denied being involved in the shooting despite the threats on social media and claimed he was actually in LA.

4. He may be going to jail.

"I’m giving you guys one last music video this Sunday before I go to jail forever," 6ix9ine captioned a photo he posted on Instagram last week.

He was arrested on outstanding charges earlier this month for allegedly strangling a 16-year-old in a Houston mall, Metro UK reported, but it is unclear what he may be incarcerated for.

It is possible his recent court appearance had to do with a charge from 2015, where he pleaded guilty to using a child in a sexual performance. It is also possible that he could be put behind bars for an assault charge involving a police officer he received last month.

6ix9ine showed up to court wearing an un-tucked white dress shirt, blue jeans, and sneakers.

5. He used a nude 13-year-old in a video.


Just went to court. It was good.

6ix9ine "pleaded guilty to three felony counts of the use of a child in a sexual performance on October 20, 2015" after he posted a video that featured nude 13-year-old girl. The rapper claimed she told him she was 19.

According to Jezebel, the complaint states that in one video “the child is sitting on the lap of the defendant [Hernandez] and the defendant has his arms around the child. The child is wearing a light colored bra and dark-colored underwear and separately charged defendant [Taquan] Anderson pours a cup of liquid on the child’s breasts and grabs the child’s breasts with his hands.”

6. He was charged with assaulting a cop in June.

The rainbow-haired rapper parked in front of a fire hydrant and when he was approached by police officers, he failed to produce a valid ID, Page Six reported. After the cops identified him, they discovered his driver's license was suspended.

6ix9ine was arrested on an aggravated unlicensed operation for driving charge but a new charge was later added. When the handcuffs were being taken off of the rapper he allegedly grabbed an officer by the hand, which resulted in a new charge of assaulting a police officer.

7. His latest hit features Nicki Minaj.

6ix9ine's newest hit "FEFE" features the Queen of Rap and has already reached 8 million views in less than 24 hours. Nicki Minaj can be seen seductively sharing an ice cream cone with 6ix9ine in the already-popular music video.
