PnB Rock Shot & Killed During An Attempted Robbery In LA; Hip-Hop Fraternity Reacts
Nicki Minaj, Russ, Cardi B and more react to the tragic death of PnB Rock.
PnB Rock, the Philadelphia artist has been shot and killed at the age of 30. The rapper was having dinner at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles with his girlfriend Stephanie Sibounheuang, who reportedly geotagged the location in a since-deleted IG Story. After being shot, the rapper was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:59 p.m.
“The victim was sitting at a table eating with a female witness when he was approached by the suspect,” Los Angeles Police Capt. Kelly Muniz says, without naming PnB Rock. “The suspect then brandished a firearm and demanded his property. The suspect then fired multiple rounds and then appears to remove some property, to what extent we don’t know at this time.”

The hip-Hop fraternity now took to social media to pay homage to the deceased rap artist. “I highly doubt nikkas was looking at PMB’s babymom IG,” tweeted Cardi B. “He was in a bad location and people stay outside plotting. It’s very irresponsible and inconsiderate to blame her for something so tragic. We should be sending nothing but love to her and his family at this time.”
“After Pop Smoke there’s no way we as rappers or our loved ones are still posting locations to our whereabouts. To show waffles & some fried chicken????! He was such a pleasure to work with. Condolences to his mom & family. This makes me feel so sick,” wrote Nicki Minaj. “Love you broski you was a real friend I’ll never forget you,” shares Tee Grizzley with some pictures and clips with PnB Rock.
Damn man. RIP PNB Rock. So sad

I’m so disgusted over PNB Rock’s murder. I’m so sick of tweets about this stuff and prayer hand emojis. Our country is truly sick. We need help. I’m not sure if the American experiment is working.

R.I.P. PnB Rock. No matter how many times the headline repeats itself with a different name, it’s always a sickening feeling. His two little girls lives are fractured forever. And for what? It’s nothing honorable in robbing children of their innocence all in the name of a lick. pic.twitter.com/odd2EwdR75
