(PAGE SIX) – Tekashi 6ix9ine was hanging out at an infamous Queens strip club — where a Knicks player was once robbed at gunpoint — before he got held up this weekend, according to police sources.
Cops believe someone spotted the rainbow-haired rapper and later followed him out. Sources told The Post he was wearing a $750,000 chain — which got swiped during the alleged stickup, along with approximately $15,000 to $20,000 in cash.
The club where 6ix9ine was hanging out is called CityScapes and is located in Maspeth.
Former Knicks forward Cleanthony Early was shot and robbed outside the establishment in December 2015. His attackers took everything he had — from his cellphone to his gold chains and even the gold caps on his teeth — before putting a bullet in his right leg. Cops later arrested three men, who were allegedly part of the stickup crew that targeted Early.
6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, had been boasting for months how he was “untouchable” and the “King of New York” following repeated beefs with fellow rappers.
The 22-year-old got a serious wakeup call on Saturday, with online photos showing him in a local hospital, sporting a black eye and swollen cheekbone as a result of the alleged attack.
“No Hate,” 6ix9ine wrote on Instagram Sunday night. “Charge it to the streets.”
Sources told The Post that the hip-hop star took himself to Kings County hospital early Sunday and was later released. He has been refusing to cooperate with authorities.
Investigators are looking for surveillance footage that may show the alleged attack in progress. Sources said they also are looking to interview 6ix9ine’s driver to see what he may have witnessed.
