Rapper PnB Rock died Monday after being shot during a robbery at Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘N Waffles in Los Angeles. He was 30 at the time.
Captain Kelly Muniz of the Los Angeles Police Department didn’t name the rapper, but she did say in a news briefing on Monday that a “victim was sitting at a table eating with a female witness when the suspect approached him.”
The suspect then pulled out a gun “and demanded his property,” Muniz said. He then shot several times “and seems to take some property.”
He was later pronounced dead at 1:59 p.m. local time, Muniz said, adding that the South Bureau Homicide and “many other detectives” will be looking into the case.
Even though Muniz didn’t say who the rapper was, witnesses and a video showed that it was PnB Rock, whose real name is Rakim Hasheem Allen.
A violent video of what happened after the shooting shows that the rapper is still alive but has serious injuries. Someone asks him how old he is, and a woman is heard saying, “He’s 30.”
KTLA says that no one else in the restaurant was hurt.
Stephanie Sibounheuang Shared A Goe-Tagged Post Before Incident
The designer and influencer Stephanie Sibounheuang, who is dating the rapper, posted a video of her dinner at the restaurant just a short time before the shooting on Instagram Story, which was then shared online by followers. The post has since been deleted, but admirers saved it and published it online.
Yi Minx was founded by fashion designer and model Stephanie Sibounheuang, who is well known for her line of dresses and bodysuits that are sold under the Yi Minx brand. She is actively promoting many products on her prominent Instagram account, including Cupcake Mafia and Cake Cosmetics, among others.
Steph, like Rock, is a pretty famous. She is the owner of the brand Angel Energy, which sells stylish clothes like bikinis, swimwear, and bodysuits. The prices of the products on her brand’s website range from $30 to $45.
It’s not clear how long the couple has been together, but they regularly sent each other pictures of themselves looking happy. Steph also sometimes posts cute pictures of their baby girl Xuri, who turned two this year.
Rapper left Two Kids Behind
Rock had two daughters. Their names were Milan and Xuri.
A 2020 BET report says that the rapper had Milan with a previous girlfriend when he was just 21 years old. On March 27, 2020, he and Steph had their second child together. At the time, the Philadelphia rapper posted the news on his Twitter to let his fans know.
“Xuri was born on the 27th, but the internet isn’t ready for her yet, I swear lol,” he wrote, gushing about his baby girl.
Hip-Hop Community Mourns On PnB’s Death
In the hours after his death was announced, many artists took to social media to share their sadness and good memories of him. Chika talked about a time when PnB made her feel comfortable during a photoshoot on Twitter.
His longtime friend and frequent collaborator Tee Grizzley shared a photo of the two of them with a group of friends from Grizzley’s engagement party, which had just happened the night before.
“Love you, broski,” Grizzley said, “you was a real friend I’ll never forget you.”
Internet Money was absolutely shocked, especially since he had just worked with PnB a few weeks before.
Some of PnB’s fans took to Twitter to blame his girlfriend for posting their location on Instagram. Cardi B, however, took to Twitter to shut down those comments and ask people to send condolences.
