Rapper 6ix9ine is recovering in the hospital after reportedly being assaulted and robbed early Sunday.
New York police did not confirm his identity but did tell the press that they are investigating the assault and robbery of a 22-year-old man in Brooklyn that occurred at the same time.
6ix9ine, who also goes by Tekashi69, rose to fame in 2017 with the single “Gummo” and on Sunday released a new single featuring Nicki Minaj.
TMZ reported that he was working on a music video when the incident occurred at around 4 a.m.
After making the report, however, the victim refused to answer further questions, according to police.
Earlier this month, the rapper was granted bail after being held at Rikers on assault charges for an incident in Texas.
