13468484, Man, they are killing people in Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles
Posted by luminous, Mon Sep-12-22 07:52 PM

PnB Rock, the Philadelphia rapper best known for his 2016 hit “Selfish,” was fatally shot during a robbery at the Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles restaurant in South Los Angeles on Monday afternoon, law enforcement sources told The Times.

Los Angles police Capt. Kelly Muniz said a shooting took place at 1:15 p.m. at the famous eatery on Main Street and Manchester Avenue. She would not identify the victim.

Rock, 30, whose real name is Rakim Allen, had been at the restaurant with his girlfriend, who’d posted a location-tagged photo in a since-deleted Instagram post.

Muniz said a suspect brandished a firearm inside the restaurant and demanded items from the victim. Sources told The Times that Rock was targeted for his jewelry.

13468486, these artists are getting hunted in l.a. right now.
Posted by Reeq, Mon Sep-12-22 08:03 PM
pnb rock
pop smoke
quando rondos boy
sauce walka almost got taken out the other day
kodak black got hit up in l.a. too (but survived)

this shit is out in the open too.

as soon as dudes locations get posted on social media...theres somebody there tryna rob/kill em in like 20 minutes.

pnb rocks girl posted a pic of their meal at roscoes to her ig stories. and you know what happened next.

hitmaka(yung berg) was just talking about the same folks that ran up in his crib (after a chick he was with tipped them off to where he was staying) were the same folks who ran up in the crib that pop smoke was in and robbed/killed him.

these niggas got a rapid response team to rob/kill artists.

i see why folks be checking in with who they know they gotta check in with.
13468537, Honestly, shit like that is part of why I stopped all that 'checking in' shit

There is NO reason for the whole world to know where you at WHILE you there.

Post it later.

i've heard of people posting vacation pics getting their home robbed
13468545, exactly, on some...oh, you in Aruba...
Posted by Dstl1, Tue Sep-13-22 12:23 PM
13468556, I agree with that...

>i've heard of people posting vacation pics getting their home

its a good idea to post vacation pics when you get back, but sometimes if I'm going out locally I'll check in to let friends know where I'm at in case they're in the area and want to stop by.

I remember a few years back a local rapper was in Hooter's talking shit on live telling people if they want him to come get him and somebody pulled up and shot him.

I'm not rich or famous and don't have any mortal enemies(that I know of) so I don't really think about anyone pulling up trying to rob or kill me.
13468691, came in here to say this.

13468550, What is this "checking in" stuff?
Posted by PimpTrickGangstaClik, Tue Sep-13-22 12:44 PM
Are these organized attacks that can be called off if the right people are contacted beforehand? I doubt it

It's probably some dudes that got word that there was some money for the taking at Roscoes. No "checking in" is going to stop this. These people desperately want money and life is cheap to them.

>these niggas got a rapid response team to rob/kill artists.

13468572, alot of these artist are gang affiliated, but from other cities
Posted by mikediggz, Tue Sep-13-22 03:31 PM
the premise of checking in (esp in LA) is that LA is difft when it comes to the gang shit and by extension the streets in general...so if you have "friends" in LA it would do you well to holla at them so they can give you the temperature of whats going on out there at the time and let you know where to go and not go.

now in terms of whether that could help you if you are in Roscoes or not, depends on if the folks you check in with are rolling with you during your stay. if you have a squad rolling with you then presumably you wont run into too much static but if you are out rolling solo and posting your location then you see what can happen whether u check in or not

13468638, bro how you ask a question about some shit you dont know about
Posted by Reeq, Wed Sep-14-22 11:17 AM
then answer your own question like you know about shit you dont know about?


either ask a question or just reply like you already know everything.

you cant do both.

13468551, Why I'm the world doesn't IG strip location data from pictures?
Posted by Buddy_Gilapagos, Tue Sep-13-22 12:50 PM
I know they can do it, and don't see any reason why they wouldn't do it.

Granted in this case the location data wouldn't make a difference if they posted from a known location.

13468552, I think you answered your own question
Posted by T Reynolds, Tue Sep-13-22 12:54 PM
the data they get from location people post from and that can be used for advertising and analytics far outweighs the damage done when a case like this happens

damn near every app harvests data from another at this point, and location is prime information, especially when you travel
13468554, I mean... she tagged the spot in the pic she posted

Posted by grey, Tue Sep-13-22 03:00 PM
church i grew up in is down the street and i think thats the best roscoes but aint no way he wouldve known that. and whoever might have told him wouldve def told him not to go over there wit a bunch of shit on. granted they catchin niggas in nice areas too, but its safer places to eat waffles.

i just dont get how/why he chose that one. theres a freeway close by so maybe they were just googling the closest one, but even then he had to see what he was dealin wit when he took the exit lol. like nip was shot in an active area but within walkin distance of million dollar homes, that roscoes is not that.

people keep talkin about the ig photo but it coulda just been niggas was lookin as soon as he got out the car and somebody made a call. cold game.
13468645, LA is deceptive to east coast dudes. I googled and that area doens't *look*
Posted by flipnile, Wed Sep-14-22 12:02 PM
...that bad. At least compared to east coast hoods. Kinda looks like the suburbs around here with the strip malls. Plus, the goons here are posted up or wandering around, so you can kinda see what time it is before you even get out the car.

One thing I noticed in most rough hoods I've been in is the lack of flowers. In nice neighborhoods the houses and buildings have well-maintained flowers and plants out front. In the hood, there's grass, dirt, and maybe some bushes.
13468646, one thing I can say is if you go to the east side / low bottoms
Posted by T Reynolds, Wed Sep-14-22 12:27 PM
at night you will have a very different impression than you get on google maps

used to drop my hs gf off at her parent's house near Compton and Vernon at night, it does not look fresh and sunny in the least
13468656, I think most major cities are like that, I believe you have to be aware...
Posted by ThaTruth, Wed Sep-14-22 01:21 PM
of your surrounds no matter what because anything can happen to anybody anywhere.

But in a lot of big cities a lot of "touristy" spots are only a few blocks away from the hood.

I feel like places like SoCal and South Florida can be really deceptive because the palm trees can have you thinking shit is sweet and it may not be lol.
13468661, Manchester/Main would be deceptive to east coast dudes?? WHAT???
Posted by chincheckin, Wed Sep-14-22 02:52 PM
You're talking bout a very active gang hood. There are at least 4 gang hoods in that area where it's on on-sight every day.

PnB was living in L.A. for a little bit and probably far enough away from that area to not be there or at least be aware of his surroundings. The juxtaposition of L.A. (Hollywood, SF Valley, Westside of L.A., etc) and So Central L.A. (especially the Eastside) is jarring.

13468697, yea ny has a grimier look
Posted by grey, Wed Sep-14-22 11:59 PM
13469052, Not THAT part of L.A., looks like North Philly / W Baltimore.

13469614, father and son duo killed him allegedly.
Posted by Reeq, Wed Sep-28-22 02:31 PM
son pulled the trigger and father was the getaway driver.

they were both already in the parking lot when pnb rock got there. so they werent alerted by any instagram post with the location.

13469615, what a familial fail smh

'His 17-year-old son, who has not been identified, faces the same charges as his 40-year-old father. Shauntel Trone, Freddie Lee’s wife and the 17-year-old’s stepmother faces one count of accessory after the fact, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Shauntel and her teenage stepson were arrested and taken into custody on Tuesday. Police discovered that Freddie Lee was the getaway driver and his teenage son was the one who fatally shot Rock. But, it’s still not known what the stepmother’s role in the crime was.'
