Tekashi69 apparently got roughed up outside a Wynwood bar early Thursday morning.
The controversial rapper is seen on TMZ getting punched while leaving Pilo’s Tequila Garden after a DJ set.
The gossip outlet shared a blurry video of the controversial rapper walking through the crowd, flanked by security. Suddenly, an arm reaches out and hits Tekashi in the side of the head.
It’s unclear who did this, but artist (real name) Daniel Hernandez admitted he was attacked.
“He scraped my shoulder through my neck,” the 25-year-old New York native told TMZ. “He also connected with my security guard’s shoulder. I didn’t know this guy. There was no prior challenge.”
Tekashi is apparently going around trying to promote new music – his latest track is called “GINE” – after a two-year stay in prison on racketeering charges.
As part of his image rebuilding campaign, the “Gummo” singer has also become a philanthropist, handing out wads of cash to people in need. Tekashi was just in Mexico and donated the equivalent of $1 million in pesosor $50,000, to a random (and very grateful) family he saw on the side of a dirt road.
Maybe the guy who parried it wanted a piece of the cake?
Pilo’s did not return Miami.com’s request for comment.
