Scandal-scarred rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine has been arrested in Florida, Page Six can confirm.

The “GOOBA” hitmaker, 27, was booked into Palm Beach County Jail Wednesday night on charges of failure to appear, jail records show.

The rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was released from custody three hours later on a $2,000 bond.

Page Six has reached out to Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for comment.

His latest run-in with the law comes just months after he was pummeled by “three or four thugs” in an LA Fitness bathroom in Florida.

A graphic video of the beatdown circulated on social media in March, showing two men towering over 6ix9ine as he lies on the bathroom floor, trying to protect his head from the blows.

The men yell at him to “shut the f–k up” as one kicks his stomach and the other punches his head.

“For 2 years I been walking around with no security,” he said in March. “Not saying I promote that BUT now you see I really never hid from anything.”

He went on to call the men cowards before switching his tune, saying he’s “not mad” about the “unfair” situation.

“In the street there’s no rules so I cant say they were wrong,” he explained, noting that he had “nothing to do with” the business they were trying to settle.

“I’m happy to be here still. And I want to say I love my fans. Thank you,” the rapper continued, before concluding the post with a special message. “P.S : I never knew we respected jumping people. When did that ever become a W???”

The Bushwick-born musician is infamous for avoiding decades behind bars in 2019.

After pleading guilty to racketeering and other charges in 2019, he originally faced decades behind bars but was granted early release from prison in 2020 for testifying against his former gang, the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
