Tekashi 6ix9ine has been involved in a gang attack that resulted in the rapper being rushed to hospital with severe injuries.
Now, Tekashi 6ix9ine has made one hell of a name for himself, but for all the wrong reasons. He developed a unique persona as a hardcore rapper in 2017 and became well-known for his excessively tattooed face and rainbow-dyed hair.
He’s also faced a lot of adversity in his life. When he was thirteen, his father has murdered just around the corner from his family home. The experience had a huge impact on Hernandez, and he soon dropped out of school and started working odd jobs to help his mother.
“My pops died in eighth grade, and I just started bugging in school,” he told the podcast “No Jumper” in a 2017 interview. “I was thirteen. I was waiting for my pops to come back home, and he never came.”
He turned his hand to music, and things began to look up for the star, and this was ultimately when Hernandez’s Tekashi 6ix9ine persona was born.
The young rapper found quite a large success with his music. Hernandez’s first proper single was “Gummo.” Released in November 2017, it hit the Billboard charts and was remixed by the likes of Offset and Lil Wayne.
In 2018, 6ix9ine released “FEFE,” a collaboration with Nicki Minaj, Murda Beatz, and Kanye West.
However, it wasn’t long before he was embroiled in a disturbing criminal case.
When Hernandez was nineteen and still rising through the ranks of internet fame and notoriety, he attended a party on February 22, 2015, where he performed several s**ual acts with a thirteen-year-old girl.
And Hernandez later told police he thought the girl was nineteen. He’s also contradicted his plea statement in several interviews, insisting that he didn’t engage with the girl s**ually and thought she was older.
After a number of procedural delays and appeals, Hernandez was sentenced in October 2020 to 4 years of probation and 1,000 hours of community service. Miraculously, he managed to avoid any prison time.
Then, in November of the same year, the federal authorities announced a series of indictments against Hernandez, his manager, Kifano Jordan, and others they said were members of the notorious Nine Trey Gangsters.
The United Blood Nation street gang was established in 1993 at the Rikers Island jail complex in New York City and operates on the East Coast of the United States.
The gang has allegedly been engaged in the s*x t**fficking of women and racketeering in Virginia, New York, and other areas. The gang was also allegedly involved in the distribution of illegal drugs.
The federal lawsuit accused the rapper and the rest of the crew of running a drug-dealing ring and enforcing their activities through violence.
And now, a few years on from the ordeal, Tekashi has been the target of a violent attack by a group of men while he was at the gym.
According to Lance Lazzaro, the rapper’s lawyer, the 26-year-old was in the sauna in a gym in South Florida on March 21 when the attack took place.
The rapper, according to Lazzaro via UNILAD, tried his best to fend off the attackers, but there were simply too many of them, and they did considerable damage.
Emergency services were called, and he was rushed to the hospital where he was treated for injuries to his back, ribs, and jaw.
It’s not known why he was the target of an attack, but some have alleged it could have something to do with his previous convictions and gang-related activity.
