PnB Rock ‘s family, XXXTentacion’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, and his other loved ones came together for the late rapper’s funeral. The “Alone” MC, who passed away on September 12, was laid to rest at the Khadijah Alderman Funeral Home on 1924 W. Hunting Park Avenue. The service was ran in a Muslim custom.
The Muslim custom in question is called Janazah. This practice involves the deceased person being buried 24 hours into their passing. For instance, when PnB’s mother heard of his passing, she demanded the medical examiner release his body to abide by Janazah.
Unfortunately, the examiner refused, which led them to get into a heated argument. The fight was so intense that the police had to calm the situation. By Friday, his body was reportedly prepared to be released.
Los Angeles officials also caused some trouble for the family in retrieving PnB Rock’s body.
His brother, PnB Meen, wrote via Instagram:
“We have been having trouble getting my brother back to Philadelphia. The state of Los Angeles claims they have some laws against us as Muslims. So now I have no clue when his Janazah is. It’s not right, yo. It’s goin on for a week. Prayers up. I got you, bro, and your daughters.”
Due to all the complications, his funeral happened a week later. The service sheet has a photo of PnB Rock with the phrase: “In Loving Memory of Rakim Allen, December 9, 1991 – September 12, 2022.” It also has a copy of the Janazah prayer.
PnB Rock, who died last week, was shot and killed at Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles’ South Los Angeles restaurant.
A Los Angeles Times rep spoke to the Los Angeles Police Department’s Captain Kelly Muniz that when the shooter entered the restaurant, he took out a firearm and demanded the rapper hand over his jewelry.
Muniz explained, “He shot the victim and ran out the side door to a getaway car and then fled the parking lot.”
The shooter hasn’t been identified and allegedly fled the restaurant in a getaway car. Police are currently investigating potential enemies and surveillance footage from inside Roscoe’s and near closeby businesses so they can find more clues about the shooter.
