*Tekashi 6ix9ine was showing off approximately $15,000 to $20,000 in cash and flaunting his $750,000 chain before all of it was snatched in a robbery, kidnapping and beating that landed him in the hospital over the weekend.
According to the New York Post, cops believe someone spotted the rainbow-haired rapper as he was flossing in CityScapes in Maspeth, Queens, and later followed him out of the club.
Former Knicks forward Cleanthony Early was shot and robbed outside the same establishment in December 2015. His attackers took everything he had — from his cell phone to his gold chains and even the gold caps on his teeth — before shooting him in his right leg. Cops later arrested three men, who were allegedly part of the stickup crew that targeted Early.
6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, had been boasting for months how he was “untouchable” and the “King of New York” following repeated beefs with fellow rappers.
Online photos and video of the 22-year-old surfaced Saturday showing him in a local hospital — sporting a black eye and swollen cheekbone as a result of the alleged attack.
“No Hate,” 6ix9ine wrote on Instagram Sunday night. “Charge it to the streets.”
Sources told The Post that the hip-hop star took himself to Kings County hospital early Sunday morning and was later released. He has been refusing to cooperate with authorities.
Investigators are looking for surveillance footage that may show the alleged attack in progress. Sources said they are also looking to interview 6ix9ine’s driver to see what he may have witnessed.
The New York Police Department told the AP that the MC, 22, (real name: Daniel Hernandez) said he was in the passenger seat of a car that was bumped by another vehicle around 4:30 a.m. in Brooklyn, N.Y. He claimed two men got out, forced him into their car, and made him call another man to bring him some personal property, which he did. The rapper said the men took an undisclosed amount of jewelry and left.
Earlier Sunday, TMZ reported a slightly different but unsubstantiated account, citing sources close to the rapper. That report says Hernandez was accosted after arriving home early Sunday from a video shoot when another car pulled up and blocked his driveway. Three hooded gunmen got out and pistol-whipped the rapper, according to the report, knocked him unconscious and carried him into their car. There, the assailants said they would kill him if he did not give them money and jewelry. They returned to his home, where the rapper’s girlfriend and daughter were inside but not harmed. Hernandez gave them $750,000 in jewelry and between $15,000 and $20,000 in cash — and then the gunmen forced him back into the car and drove away. According to the report, Hernandez was able to open the back door of the car and escape with the assistance of a stranger whose car he approached — the driver called 911 and an ambulance arrived.
The rapper had been arrested in Texas earlier in the week on charges connected to an incident in which he appeared to choke a 16-year-old boy in a Houston mall. He was arrested in New York on July 11 while attempting to leave the country for a European tour, incarcerated, released on $150,000 bail and then flew to Texas, where he surrendered to authorities and posted $5,000 bail.
Earlier on Sunday, the MC dropped a new single, a collaboration with Nicki Minaj called “Fefe.”
