Roddy Ricch says LA has got to do better after rapper PnB Rock was shot and killed last week while out dining with his girlfriend.
“LA! Usually I try to mind my business and let the world rotate but we gotta do better. It’s too much senseless violence. Too much opportunity and motivation to take things other people work hard for. It’s too much life to live to take someone else’s life away,” he wrote on Instagram Story.
“I love my city but we can’t keep going out like this. Before you know it, it’ll be nobody left to take from or kill. Let’s stay on point stay aware and find better ways to pursue our dreams because this shit turning into ALL NIGHTMARES.”
Several rappers have spoken out since the killing, including Fat Joe, who defended Rock’s girlfriend.
“The young brother was supporting Black-owned businesses going to the Roscoe’s Chicken with his wife and his kid,” he said. “And so we get all these deflections of, ‘Oh, but his wife posted the chicken.’ ‘Oh, he’s not supposed to wear jewelry.’ How ’bout we not supposed to kill each other,” he said.
