According to the Los Angeles Times, rapper PnB Rock was brutally shot dead on Monday, the 12th of September.
The Philadelphia native was having a meal with his girlfriend and an unnamed friend/ family member at Roscoe’s House of Chicken & Waffles restaurant in South Los Angeles when an unidentified man showed up demanding to take his jewelry and valuables. In the ensuing scuffle, the rapper was shot multiple times, resulting in his death at the scene.
Rakim Allen, who went by the stage name PNB Rock, was one of the artists in the industry who could easily switch between rapping and singing in his music.
The artist rose to fame in 2015 after releasing his single ‘Fleek.’ Throughout his career, he collaborated with numerous artists, including Ed Sheeran, Kodak Black, and Chance the Rapper.
The artist was also described by many as a loving father to his two beautiful daughters.
It was initially speculated that the attacker had identified the Rock’s location following a social media post released by his girlfriend. However, over the course of the investigation, the police have been taking a deep dive into the rapper’s life.
TMZ reported that law enforcement has been examining a possible link between the brutal shooting and his ties in Atlanta and Philadelphia in a bid to uncover any beef that may have resulted in this incident. This might easily cause the investigation to cross state lines.
The decision to focus on other possible motives has somewhat cleared his girlfriend of any involvement in the murder.
The police have been trying to identify the masked attacker, who left the restraint immediately after the shooting in a gate away car, through video feeds and tips.
