According to her;

“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? He was such a pleasure to work with. Condolences to his mum & family. This makes me feel so sick.”

Here is what she had to say;

”I highly doubt n*** was looking at PNB’s baby mom IG.

He was in a bad location and people stayed outside plotting.
