American based rapper PnB Rock is dead.

PnB Rock died after he was shot while eating at Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles with his girlfriend.

The "Selfish" rapper was pronounced dead at an L.A. area hospital Monday, where he was rushed just minutes after the shooting.

Born Rakim Allen, the Philadelphia native was 30 years old. He leaves behind two young children.

The Times wrote that the shooting happened at Roscoe’s House of Chicken ’N Waffles as PnB Rock was “being robbed of his jewelry.” TMZ reported that law enforcement received a call about the incident at 1:23 p.m. and that graphic footage circulating online showed him “fighting for his life.” Police told reporters the victim was pronounced dead at a hospital at 1:59 p.m. 

“The victim was sitting at a table eating with a female witness when he was approached by the suspect,” Los Angeles police Capt. Kelly Muniz says in the clip below, without naming PnB Rock. “The suspect then brandished a firearm and demanded his property. … The suspect then fired multiple rounds and then appears to remove some property, to what extent we don’t know at this time.”

The Times says Muniz also revealed the suspect “shot the victim and ran out the side door to a getaway car and then fled the parking lot.”

A TMZ source indicated it “appears the shooter targeted PnB, because no one else was shot or assaulted.”

PnB released the studio albums Catch These Vibes in 2017 and Trapstar Turnt PopStar in 2019, both via Atlantic Records. He also had a series of mixtapes dating back to 2014, including 2016’s Money, Hoes & Flows with Fetty Wap. TMZ says he relocated from Philadelphia to L.A. after signing his deal with Atlantic almost a decade ago. “His stage name refers to a street corner in the Philly neighborhood where he grew up, Pastorius and Baynton,” the outlet writes.

The rapper’s girlfriend Stephanie Sibounheuang, with whom he shared 2-year-old daughter Xuri, posted that they were eating at Roscoe’s on social media.

PnB Rock is survived by his two daughters, Milan and Xuri, who he shared with Steph.

He was only 30.

RIP
