Who is Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine? Why is he in hospital?

6ix9ine was hospitalized after reportedly being kidnapped and robbed during a brutal attack in NY.

But earlier on Sunday celebrity tabloid newsite TMZ filed a different and more detailed but unsubstantiated report, citing sources close to the rapper.

However, in the version related by law enforcement sources, two men rammed his vehicle at a red light, grabbed Tekashi, and drove him to his home, where he called someone inside - the story supposes his girlfriend - who came down with the jewelry.

He ran into the Trader Joe's after crashing his grandmother's auto outside the store during a police pursuit, police said . Corado was killed by the gunman inside the store at some point during the standoff, police told the Los Angeles Times .

After receiving the valuables, the gunmen reportedly drove off with 6ix9ine in the backseat. The men then allegedly drove Tekashi back to his home where two went inside and stole $750k in jewelry and up to $20k in cash. After the home robbery the gunmen allegedly drove off with 6ix9ine in the vehicle before he managed to escape, flee and get help from a civilian.

The gunmen then allegedly drove the rapper around NY, demanding various amounts of money and jewelry. "An ambulance came and Tekashi was taken to a hospital, where he remains". He asked the driver to call 911, who did, but then asked him to get out of the auto and wait at an intersection for the ambulance. The rapper subsequently "became uncooperative" after filing his police report, and was later admitted to a hospital. Tekashi was treated for his wounds and the doctors reportedly performed a cat scan to check out the severity of his head injury. Especially since that same day his collab with Nicki Minaj called "Fefe" dropped. He also asked the Pink Barbz if she still loved him after he got robbed.

In June, Hernandez was arrested at John F. Kennedy Airport on a warrant for charges out of Texas related to an altercation at a shopping mall in Houston back in January.
