Atlantic Records signee PnB Rock was reportedly arrested on Sunday (Jan. 20) in Bensalem, Penn., about 25 minutes outdoors of his native Philadelphia, on gun and drug prices.
The Philadelphia Inquirer experiences that 27-year-old PnB, whose delivery identify is Rakim Allen, was taken into custody after Bensalem police served a search warrant “on the luxurious townhouse on a financial institution of the Delaware River that he rents.”
Once inside, authorities reportedly discovered 4 kilos of marijuana, $33,000 and a stolen glock handgun. The Inquirer relays that PnB formally faces prices of possession of narcotics, receiving stolen property, prison conspiracy and “associated offenses.”
Action News on 6abc — a Philadelphia information station — reported an extra possession with intent to ship cost, which is corroborated by The Inquirer’s reporting of surveillance exhibiting PnB promoting marijuana out of the house. Stephanie Sibounheuang, 27, was inside the house on the time and is in custody alongside PnB. Both are being held on $500,000 bail on the time of this writing.
Just final month, the rapper told Drew Lazor of The Inquirer that his 33 months in state jail for drug-related prices as a 19-year-old fueled his musical success: “In the penitentiary, you will have music throughout you. People are making beats on key phrases and rapping in circles all day. I used to be a part of that. I’d go into my cell and write music alone time.”
Even extra lately, two days earlier than his arrest on Jan. 18, PnB excitedly took to Twitter to proclaim 2019 as “our 12 months.”
“For everyone who ever stated ‘PNB IS UNDERRATED’ OR ‘PNB DON’T GET ENUFF (sic) RECOGNITION’ …. THIS OUR YEAR I PROMISE WATCH WHEN TSTPS DROP,” he tweeted.
“TSTPS” refers to his upcoming sophomore studio album Trapstar Turnt PopStar, anticipated Feb. 22.
