Akon recently opened up about the death of rapper PnB Rock and said the rapper’s death hit him particularly hard.
“That one broke my heart. I knew him very well. That kid was amazing. He was no where near reaching his potential. That kid, he had it. PnB definitely had it,” he said.
The Philly rapper was robbed and fatally shot at a Roscoe’s House of Chicken ’N Waffles restaurant in Los Angeles.
DJ Vlad asked Akon whether he would ever pull up to Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles in Los Angeles alone, driving a $150,000 car.
“Absolutely not. Why would I do that. I’m not going to glorify my successful for people who are still struggling. It’s a certain level of how you communicate with people. And then sometimes, the communication can get distorted, cause it almost feels like there’s this ‘nana na na’ attitude. I made it and you didn’t. Most people may not take it that way, but I always calculate, what if they do.”
