Paying tribute to the late Philly rapper, Yak headed to a Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles, the same restaurant chain PnB Rock was eating in when he was shot and killed on September 12 in Southern Los Angeles.
Thinking it would be a fitting homage to the “Everyday We Lit” artist, Kodak captioned his post: “LongLivePNB ! Good Chicken & Waffles -BET POWER UP #STILLBILL.”
Fans were perplexed by Kodak Black’s decision to try to honor his friend with a meal from the same chain PnB was murdered in. “Ain’t no way,” one fan wrote, while another added: “Wait what homie?”
The Sniper Gang leader collaborated with PnB Rock on a couple of occasions including tracks such as “Too Many Years” and “Horses” from The Fate of the Furious soundtrack.
Shortly after PnB’s death, Kodak saluted PnB Rock and another late rapper comrade in XXXTENTACION by posting a photo of the two together.
“SMH @pnbrock @xxxtentacion MY N-GGA @pnbrock ROCKIN THE SG CHAIN IN THIS PICTURE SHIT KRAZY OUCHEA,” the 25-year-old penned.
The murder investigation of PnB Rock had another update on Thursday (September 29) when police revealed a third suspect had been apprehended. 40-year-old Freddie Lee Trone was taken into custody by an FBI-led fugitive task force in Las Vegas on Thursday afternoon (September 29) for his alleged involvement in the rapper’s death.
He has been charged with one count of murder, two counts of second-degree robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery.
Trone’s arrest comes shortly after his 17-year-old son, who hasn’t been identified due to being a juvenile, was detained in Lawndale, California in connection with PnB Rock’s murder. The teen faces the same charges as his father and stands accused of being the gunman.
His stepmother and Trone’s wife, 38-year-old Shauntel Trone, was also arrested this week in Gardena, California and was charged with one count of being an accessory after the fact to the killing. She pleaded not guilty at her arraignment Thursday.
Meanwhile, Kodak Black added another good deed to his list earlier this week, paying the rent of several families who were at risk of being evicted.
According to one the rapper’s Instagram Stories, the Pompano Beach native covered the outstanding rent arrears of 28 families and paid their rent for the next several months.
Kodak Black’s kind gesture is reminiscent of the time when he donated 100 air conditioners to several Pompano Beach residents back in July 2021.
