NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine is in the hospital after being pistol whipped, kidnapped and robbed in Brooklyn Sunday.

According to TMZ, the 22-year-old rapper, born Daniel Hernandez, was coming home from a music video shoot at around 4 a.m. when a car blocked his driveway.

Three gunmen exited the car and one struck 6ix9ine with a pistol and knocked him unconscious. They threatened to kill him and demanded cash and jewelry, TMZ reported.

The rapper was taken home shortly after being kidnapped and the attackers robbed the house. TMZ reports they made off with $750,000 in jewelry and about $20,000 in cash.

Sources say 6ix9ine dragged himself out of the car after the thieves left and flagged down a stranger who called 911. He was taken to the hospital and is currently undergoing tests, including a CT scan.
