We’ve Lost At Least A Rapper To Gun Violence Since 2018

The death of rapper PnB Rock in Los Angeles this week stunned the hip-hop community, but brought up familiar conversations that have been taking place for years.

The rapper was shot while eating with his girlfriend at Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘N Waffles in what appears to be a robbery, according to Los Angeles Police Department Chief Michel Moore.

Notably, Moore said a picture of the pair’s meal had been posted on Instagram, with the location tagged.

PnB Rock isn’t the first rapper to die by gun violence, but his death is another addition to a trend that dates back to at least 2018.

Each year since then, gun violence — whether through robbery or disagreement — has killed at least one rapper who was either already famous or on the cusp of crossover fame.
