The Philadelphian artist was reportedly shot while dining at a South Los Angeles restaurant.
Rapper PnB Rock has died at the age of 30. According to the Los Angeles Times, the Philadelphia native, legally known as Rakim Hasheem Allen, was reportedly shot and killed during a robbery at the Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles South L.A. location. The shooting occurred on Monday afternoon (Sept. 12) at around 1:15 p.m. on Main Street and Manchester Avenue.
Allen had been at the location eating with his girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang. In a now-deleted Instagram post, she allegedly revealed their location while the couple enjoyed their meal. However, it has not been confirmed if that is how the shooter learned of their location.
Los Angles police Capt. Kelly Muniz detailed the robbery, stating the victim drew a weapon and demanded the artist hand over his jewelry. “He shot the victim and ran out the side door to a getaway car and then fled the parking lot,” she said. Allen was then transported to a hospital and pronounced dead around 1:59 p.m. PT.
The suspect reportedly brandished a firearm and demanded items and jewelry. No suspects have been arrested at this time.
PnB Rock left his mark on the game in a short time with his signature sing-songy rap melodies. However, his most famous song came from the YFN Lucci-assisted anthem “Everyday We Lit” in 2016. The hit peaked at No. 33 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the highest-charting song for both artists.
Rock was gearing up for the release of another project and recently released his latest song, “Luv Me Again,” earlier this month.
