PnB Rock was eating lunch with his girlfriend and mother of his two daughters, Stephanie Sibounheuang, at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles in South Los Angeles on September 12 when he was fatally shot. His death sparked a cascade of condolences on social media from everyone from famed EDM producer/DJ Steve Aoki to Ice-T.
“Always be a legend,” Aoki wrote. “We love u and miss u king. U will always be in our hearts and minds. An absolutely compassionate kind human being. Rest in power king.”
Meanwhile, Run-DMC legend Darryl “DMC” McDaniels is using PnB Rock’s tragic passing as a teachable moment. On September 13, Run-DMC tweeted a nearly 10-minute video of the Hip Hop legend discussing what he feels needs to change.
“We need a 17- to 19-year-old individual to make ‘The Message’ to shut down all the nonsense that we’re celebrating — drinking lean and this and that,” he said. “You can get high, you can go to the party, but what about making sure everybody’s eating? That’s what Hip Hop did.
“It took some young boys and girl who weren’t politicians and these muthafuckas stepped to the mic and said, ‘It’s like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder how I keep from going under/ Don’t push me…’ Right now, muthafuckas is close to the edge. Hip Hop is going insane.”
