This is as scary as it gets. A movie turned reality and it involves controversial artist, Tekashi 69.
News broke this morning via TMZ that 6ix9ine was reportedly kidnapped, pistol whipped and robbed by 3 hooded gunmen.
Authorities are investigating the incident but say the "Gummo" rapper and his team are not cooperating with providing information.
Sources say he was leaving a music video shoot in Brooklyn at around 4AM. When he pulled into his driveway, a vehicle pulled up blocking his way. Three hooded gunman got out of the car and pistol whipped him to unconsciousness.
They drove around in the vehicle with the rapper in the backseat and demanded he give them money and jewelry.
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.
