On Tuesday (Sept. 13), Los Angeles radio station Real 92.3 shared on its Instagram account, an interview with PnB Rock from earlier this year. The 30-year-old rapper sat with radio personality Bootleg Kev and talked about the dangers of going out in public as an artist in Los Angeles, California without security.

The one-minute clip started with Rock and Kev talking about someone being robbed in a restaurant, comparing it to the Grand Theft Auto video game. Rock asked Kev: “You [saw] that s**t where the n**ga just walked up on [inaudible] in the restaurant?” He added, “Boy, that s**t was goofy to me.” Kev admitted that he has had to tell his wife to wear her wedding ring less when they are out in public for fear of getting robbed.

Adding to Kev’s point, Rock said that bodyguards would have to be used consistently if celebrities were to start traveling with them. “Unless you want to move around with security — and you don’t want to have to do that s**t every time you go out. You feel me? That s**t be [extra].”

However, Rock later confessed that he dealt with people trying to rob him in the past, saying: “N**gas tried me a couple of times while out here. I’m not gonna lie. It don’t [ever] work, you feel me? I am on point. I am from the same s**t y’all are [from]. I done did the [same] s**t, you feel me? I [am] on it.” The rapper would change his opinion about getting protection while traveling with expensive jewelry, telling the listeners: “If you’re going to do that s**t, be safe. Get you some security.”

On Tuesday, Trippie Redd paid tribute to the late artist on his Instagram account, calling Rock his “real life brother” and sharing how generous he was to him. “[Rock] wasn’t a selfish person either,” he wrote. “He always praised me and my friends that aren’t famous, working with n**gas [and] flying to us. We always bonded over the fact that we both got to make hits with [XXXTentacion] during his journey here.”

Trippie said in the post that record labels should invest more into full-time security for their artists. He revealed that he lost many friends to gun violence and believed additional protection could prevent senseless deaths. “I keep losing my friends to gun violence,” Trippie expressed. “I want all my friends to start having a guard or two. [Honestly, it] should be on the label to get [you] protection.”
