Tekashi 6ix9ine is someone who has seemingly always welcomed the threat of violence. Overall, 6ix9ine has cemented himself as a troll within the world of hip-hop. However, sometimes your actions and words have real-life consequences. 6ix9ine understands that as he ultimately went to prison for a few months following his infamous RICO trial. During that trial, 6ix9ine snitched on everyone, which had people thinking that he would be killed upon exiting prison. The rapper subsequently hired a bunch of security, before ultimately letting them go as they were too expensive.
On Tuesday night, 6ix9ine was in dire need of security as he was attacked by a group of men at a local gym in Florida. According to TMZ, 6ix9ine was at LA Fitness at the time and was enjoying some time in the sauna. That’s when the men popped out and started beating him. As Tekashi’s lawyer Lance Lazzaro explained, he attempted to fend off these attackers, but to no avail. Furthermore, the whole thing was captured on video, with clips hitting the internet. As you can imagine, the whole thing has gone viral.

In the video clip above, you can see the men striking Tekashi 6ix9ine in the head numerous times. Moreover, they yell at 6ix9ine as he leaves the bathroom. When the rapper turns to the camera, his face is very swollen and extremely bloody. It made for a fairly gruesome scene, and the employees at LA Fitness were shocked. However, they certainly acted quickly as police and EMS were called to the scene. After evaluation, 6ix9ine went to the hospital in an ambulance.
As TMZ reports, Lazzaro has every intention of calling the feds. This is because he wants 6ix9ine to have some sort of protection, moving forward. Although 6ix9ine has been very antagonistic towards others, this is the first time he has been touched in such a way since his trial. Ultimately, this could be a wake-up call that he does need security, as anything can happen to him at any time.[Via]
