Who is PnB Rock?

PnB Rock, real name Rakim Hasheem Allen, is a 30-year-old rapper and singer from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Born and raised in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia, PnB Rock created his stage name with an acronym for his childhood street corner, Pastorius and Baynton.

The rough side of the neighborhood presented PnB Rock with many challenges, one of which was losing many of his friends.

“There were five of us, but now there’s four of us,” PnB Rock told Complex in 2017.

Growing up, PnB Rock spent his childhood in and out of shelters with his single mother and four siblings.

“I don’t have everything I wanted, but I was the class clown, I was funny. I had all the girls. I was cool,” he told The Fader in 2014.

But when his uncle, who was a father figure to him, was killed when Allen was just 15, he became involved in criminal activities.

Four years after his uncle’s murder, Allen was sentenced to 33 months in prison.

“I was selling drugs, I probably robbed a few people here or there,” he told the outlet.

In prison, Allen began writing music, songs inspired by his childhood.

How did PnB Rock’s music career start?

Allen was inspired by his mother’s love of the music of 1950s doo-wop groups like the Flamingos.

He also cited Tupac Shakur and Jodeci as his favorites and the inspiration for his sound.

When he finally got out of jail, he jumped on the #TBH trend on Instagram, with one person singing in response to one person’s post.

With no tracks being recorded, Allen began singing to keep up with the trend, and shortly thereafter produced his first single, Weekend Baby.

Two mixtapes followed, but as his music gained traction, he was back behind bars for violating his probation by leaving his transitional home without permission.

During this time his music took off on social media and his music video “My City Needs Something” was aired on MTV.

“People died, people got killed by cops,” he told The Fader of his life in Philadelphia.

He continued, “If I listen to this song, I will cry.”

Allen went on to work with Atlantic Records and released his debut album GTTM: Goin Thru the Motions in 2017.

His most recent release was his album 2 Get You Thru The Rain, which was released on December 8th, 2021.

The six-track album featured other artists such as Lil Baby, Young Thug and DJ Luke Nasty.
