PnB Rock (whose real name was Rakim Allen) was reportedly dining with his girlfriend, according to a since-deleted Instagram she posted, per the Los Angeles Times.
In the wake of his death, fellow rapper Cardi B spoke out on Twitter to defend his girlfriend, saying she “highly” doubted the suspect found PnB Rock through the social media post. “He was in a bad location and people stay outside plotting,” Cardi said. “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.”
PnB Rock had recently been promoting his song “Luv Me Again.” In the comments section of the lyrics video on YouTube, fans are already posting tributes to the late musician.
“Rest in Peace PnB you left your legacy, we’re proud of everything you did,” one wrote, while another said, “You have gave all of us amazing music through out the years and it’s sad to hear that you’re gone now, I am completely devastated, gone but not forgotten.”
