NEWS: Rapper Takashi 6ix9ine Hospitalized After Attack At Florida Gym

The 26-year-old rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez AKA Tekashi 6ix9ine was hospitalized after being ambushed by a group of attackers in the bathroom of a gym in South Florida on Tuesday, he sustained injuries to his face and bruises, according to his attorney, Lance Lazzaro.

Lazzaro said the rapper was attacked in and outside the LA Fitness gym sauna by three or four men who beat him up, though he tried fighting back. “He had cuts to his face and bruises,” Lazzaro said. The attorney said that the perpetrators fled after employees heard the disturbance.

According to Lazzaro, police in South Florida were contacted, and Hernandez was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. It is unclear whether the rapper is still in the hospital.

Lazzaro told TMZ that he intends to provide Hernandez with protection after he is freed from federal prison in April 2020. Hernandez was caught and sentenced to two years in jail in 2019 on nine charges related to his involvement with the Nine Trey Bloods gang, including racketeering, drug trafficking, and firearm violations. Hernandez's prison sentence was reduced after he worked with federal authorities to imprison his associates. After a court referred to the rapper as a "model prisoner," he was released early owing to COVID-19 concerns.

One of Hernandez's assailants is heard stating in a video released on Twitter, "Take a photo. "I'm going to be famous now." Another footage showed a bloodied Hernandez leaving the gym.

Hernandez was expelled from a Miami baseball stadium on Friday for being inebriated and disrupting fans, according to multiple media sources.
