The moment troubled rapper 6ix9ine was hauled away in handcuffs by cops in the Dominican Republic on Friday night has been caught on camera. 

The singer, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was wanted on the Caribbean island in relation to the assault of two music producers. The alleged attack was related to the rapper’s girlfriend, Dominican singer Yailin La mas viral, reports Diario Libre. 

Tekashi 6ix9ine, known for his rainbow-colored hair and ’69’ tattoo on his forehead, previously faced decades in prison as part of a racketeering case in which he was accused of using a violent gang as a ‘personal hit squad.’

Instead, his sentence was reduced to about two years after his testimony against the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, earning him a label as a ‘snitch.’

The footage shows Hernandez, 27, being led down the steps outside of a hotel as a crowd cheers and records the moment on their cellphones.

Hernandez’s arrest was confirmed by Dominican Republic-based criminal lawyer Felix Portes. In a series of posts on Instagram, Portes said that Hernandez had been attempting to flee the country in a private jet but was put on a ‘migration alert’ meaning he could leave due to the arrest warrant that had been issued. 

The actual assault was not captured on video but a clip showing a group of men about to enter a building allegedly shows the moments before the attack took place. The men then hurry away a few minutes after arriving. 

According to the Diario Libre report, Yailin was recording a song at a studio with producer Diamond La Mafia when he was attacked along with another person by five men. 

La Mafia told the website that Yailin at left the studio at that point. When the men arrived, they demanded to know where she was. He let them into the studio and when they couldn’t find her, they began to attack. 

The other man, who was hit with the butt of a gun, required surgery in order to have his jaw realigned, reports Diario Libre. 

Diamond La Mafia accused Hernandez of being ‘jealous’ over his relationship with Yailin.  

According to Portes, Hernandez was arrested in the town of Samana and will be transferred to La Vega to answer to the assault charges. 

 In August, the GUMMA hitmaker was arrested on failure to appear charges related to traffic violations in Florida. While just four months earlier, Hernandez was beaten up inside of an LA Fitness gym in Florida. 

The rapper was sent to hospital to treat severe injuries, including gashes, bruises and swelling on his jaw, ribs and back. 

Shortly after the brutal attack, the group of men who claimed to have beaten him up boasted about the attack on social media.

In videos circulating online, they called him a ‘rat’ who wouldn’t be tolerated in their ‘hood.’

While kicking and punching him, one could be heard yelling to another: ‘Take a picture, take a picture – I am going to be famous now.’

It is not currently known what exactly prompted the Florida attack, but Hernandez has rarely been short of enemies.

His popularity dropped in 2018, after he was labelled a snitch for testifying to prosecutors as part of a deal to lessen his own time in prison.

He faced an eyewatering minimum of 47 years in prison, and could’ve gone down for life, after he was charged with several crimes, including racketeering, firearm possession, armed robbery and attempted murder.

Those charges included allegations that he was directly involved in a drive-by shooting. During that incident, an innocent bystander was wounded.  

But prosecutors cut him a deal, which caught the ire of the whole rap world, and he ended up serving just two years behind bars, which he served in a private jail for his own security. 

He was released in April 2020, ahead of schedule due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

In 2018, Tekashi 6ix9ine had a multiplatinum hit song, Fefe, with Nicki Minaj, which peaked at No. 3 on the pop charts, and Stoopid, featuring imprisoned rapper Bobby Shmurda.
