Philadelphia rapper PnB Rock has sadly passed away after he was wounded during a robbery gone wrong. 

On Monday, September 12, TMZ confirmed PnB Rock, born Rakim Hasheem Allen, succumbed to gunshot wounds he suffered from following a bloody shooting at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles in L.A. The rapper was eating with his girlfriend at the restaurant when he was approached by the shooter, who shot him, swiped his jewelry and fled the scene. He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

PnB Rock officially got into the rap game in 2014 following the release of his debut mixtape Real N***a Bangaz, which he wrote while he was behind bars. He signed to Atlantic Records a year later and dropped RnB3. He released his smash hit “Selfish” in 2016 and followed up with albums like Catch These Vibes in 2017 and TrapStar Turnt PopStar in 2019. 

In between, he teamed up with plenty of artists for memorable tracks like YFN Lucci’s “Everyday We Lit”, XXXTentacion’s “SMASH” and plenty more. He’s worked with countless artists across multiple genres from Young Thug to Ed Sheeran. In 2020,, he released a song with Pop Smoke called “Ordinary” and also dropped “Rose Gold” featuring King Von last year. Back in February, he dropped his project SoundCloud Daze.

The 30-year-old was survived by his two daughters and his girlfriend Stephanie Sibounheuang. The couple had just welcomed their daughter Xuri Li Sibounheuang into the world in 2020. Rest in peace, PnB Rock.
