Tekashi 6ix9ine's has challenged the rapper's attackers to a 'fight to the death'.
Unless you've been living under a rock, or perhaps you've got more interesting things going on in your life, you'll have seen that the rapper was allegedly jumped at the gym.
Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez, was said to be minding his own business at a gym in Florida on Monday (20 March) when a group of guys attacked him.
In footage shared on social media, the 26-year-old can be seen lying on the floor of the bathroom while two other men kick him repeatedly.
The brawl caused quite the commotion and gym staff eventually alerted emergency services.
Another video, which shows the aftermath of the altercation, sees Tekashi, his face covered in blood, leaving the gym.
The rapper's attorney Lance Lazzaro told TMZ that his client tried his best to fight the attackers off but there were simply too many of them and they savaged him.
The identities of the men involved remain unknown, but rumours have been circulating online that Tekashi's bodyguard, Bam Bam, was somehow a part of it.
In a post to his Instagram account, Bam Bam hit back at the haters and said he had nothing to do with the attack.
Sharing a video from CCTV footage, which allegedly shows the attackers entering the gym, he wrote: "So he couldn't just do it alone, he called for back up when he saw an opportunity.
"69 grown man n he wanted to do cardio on his own he be outside like that.
"I can't control him, but to say I set him up, false allegations, something minorities be used to, we be set up."
In another post, he called out the group, challenging them to a four on one fight.
"These N**s with some pillow fist ain’t even that worry about my ex-wife would whoop they a*s," he said.
"Weak a*s clowns weak a*s punches .. THEY WONT CLAIM IT THO…
"Me n @bullet_guzman spoke he say it ain’t him watch the video n it ain’t him.. n I don’t beat people up at LA FITNESS we do it for real @goatshed.”
Confident of his chances against the alleged attackers, Bam Bam said he'd fork out $10,000 if the group could get the better of him.
Adding: "SO THISE GUYS IN THE VIDEO 3 n 4 counting camera guy .. 4 vs 1 y’all weak ass bitches against me .. you win I pay you 10,000$ n if you lose you die .. there will be no ref.. CLAIM IT GANGSTAS."
