According to 6ix9ine's lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, his client attempted to fight off the attackers but was overwhelmed and heavily beaten before fleeing. The rapper was not accompanied by security at the time.
As gym workers heard the ruckus, police and paramedics were summoned to the site, and 6ix9ine was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.
A video of the incident released on Instagram shows 6ix9ine laying on the ground, his head shielded, while two men kick and punch him.
“Bitch ass! Clown ass n-gga!” When roughhousing the rainbow-haired rapper, one of the males can be heard yelling. "Take a picture!" Now I want to be famous, n-gga!"
"King Fuck we caught 6ix9ine slipping fuck a rat ADR not on our hood," the video description says. 6ix9ine's habit of snitching may have triggered the attack.
