What up gang. Back with the real you know what’s the deal. Rap has steadily worked its way into becoming what is believed to be one of the most dangerous careers. It’s closing steel doors and throwing away keys and snatching souls like the Grim Reaper. We’ve seen many losses over the years, but 2022 was a bloody year for hip-hop. From beef turning violent, to assassinations, to backdoors, hip-hop lost far too many rappers. These are the rappers from different cities that didn’t make it to 2023 and how they passed. Let’s chop it up and break it down. (0:00-0:31) (0:27-0:50) (0:01-0:50) (0:00-0:38) (0:19-0:47) (0:19-0:44) (0:17-0:37) (0:00-0:17) (0:00-0:12) (0:00-0:13) (0:10-0:24)

September 12th, 2022, Pnb Rock and his shawty made a crave error thinking as a celebrity they could hit up anywhere to eat. It’s messed up, but once you that big you need to start adjusting where you are and the company you keep else it may result in your life being targeted. That’s exactly what happened when PnB Rock and his girl decided to go to Roscoe’s House of Chicken ’N Waffles restaurant in LA. A stepmother, son, and father were lurking in the cut scheming to make a lick, but who knew it would end in such a tragic way. Reports state that around 1pm, a man entered the restaurant where PnB Rock and his shawty were eating and demanded PnB to hand over his jewelry. PnB probably wasn’t going for it which led bro to forcibly take what he came for after upping the pole and hitting PnB. Still, he wasn’t satisfied and tried to rob his girl too but had to dip before he could do anything else.

All 3 goofies were caught. The pops and son were charged with one count of murder, two counts of second-degree robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery.
