Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was kidnapped from a strip club, pistol-whipped and robbed by armed assailants over the weekend.

The 22-year-old rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez was hanging out at the Cityscapes Strip Club in Maspeth, Queens before he was robbed.

NYPD officials suspect the assailants spotted Tekashi 6ix9ine and followed him out of the club.

The New York Post citing sources reported that Hernandez was robbed of his $750,000 chain — along with approximately $15-20K in cash during the stick-up.

Following the attack, the injured hip-hop star took himself to Kings County Hospital where he was treated for injuries and later released.

Photos posted online shows Tekashi 6ix9ine with a black eye and swollen cheekbone as a result of the alleged attack.

NYPD officials are looking for any surveillance footage that may have recorded the alleged robbery in progress.

Investigators also want to interview 6ix9ine’s driver to discern what he may have witnessed.

However, the tattoo-faced, rainbow-haired rapper has refused to cooperate with the investigation.
