The hiphop community took to social media to react to PNB Rock’s death. Nicki Minaj tweeted, “After Pop Smoke there’s no way we as rappers or our loved ones are still posting locations to our whereabouts. To show waffles & some fried chicken????! He was such a pleasure to work with. Condolences to his mom & family. This makes me feel so sick. Jesus. #SIP #PnbRock.” PNB Rock’s girlfriend posted that she was eating a Roscoe’s on Instagram shortly before the rapper was shot and killed.
Cardi B wrote, “I highly doubt n*kkas was looking at PMB’s babymom IG. He was in a bad location and people stay outside plotting. 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.”
