New surveillance video appears to partially confirm rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine's account of being kidnapped and robbed in New York early Sunday morning.

The rapper claimed he was attacked, pistol-whipped and then taken to his home and robbed, but he refused to file a police report, the NYPD said Monday.

He later checked himself into a hospital, reports said. 

An image of the rapper with a bruised face was published by TMZ Monday.

TMZ reported that police said they had successfully pulled surveillance video from a camera down the street from the rapper’s home which corroborates that he was taken to his home. 

Police did not immediately respond to InsideEdition.com's request for comment.

Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, took to Instagram after the robbery, saying that before the incident he had a feeling it was his day to die.

Referencing rapper XXXTentaction, who was killed during a robbery in Florida last month, Tekashi wrote: "Everything happens for a reason. I know you was there.

“Nothing materialistic is more important then LIFE. I live to see another DAY I get to see my daughter another day. No Hate Charge it to the streets,” he continued. 

The 22-year-old also posted a video of himself hanging out with fans in Brooklyn Tuesday. 

“After getting punched in the face 1,000,000 times Tekashi69 still a whole bum out here,” he wrote in a caption that accompanied the video.
