Nicki Minaj has warned about posting locations online after the music industry was rocked by rapper PnB Rock‘s fatal shooting.
The 30-year-old musician, real name Rakim Hasheem Allen, passed away on Monday, September 12, after being shot “multiple times” while visiting the Manchester Boulevard branch of Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The rapper was dining at the restaurant with his girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang, who posted and then deleted a location-tagged photo of the couple’s meal on her Instagram Story before the shooting occurred at 1:23 p.m. PT, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to Billboard.
“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????!” Minaj tweeted.
She added, PnB Rock “was such a pleasure to work with. Condolences to his mom & family. This makes me feel so sick. Jesus.
“The ppl around these rappers gain so much. It’s time to start really reminding them over & over!!! At least TRY to put your foot down if you CARE! Tell them!!!” Minaj continued. “You’re not loved like you think you are!!! You’re prey!!!! In a world full of predators!!!! What’s not clicking???!!!”
In another tweet, she said, “Yup. Ima say what I want. As a RAPPER & as a MOTHER. I know 1st hand how these guys feel coming from the streets then being able to provide for their moms. My heart is hurting for the MOTHERS OF THESE KIDS that tried to make something better of their lives!!! LETS EDUCATE ASAP!!!”
