AceShowbiz - YK Osiris didn't wish death on himself. The "Worth It" singer has denied making a disturbing message on his Instagram Story as he appeared to mourn the recent tragic passing of fellow musician PnB Rock.
A post on YK Osiris' Story on Tuesday, September 13 read, "GOD why take him? , should of took me he didn't deserve that at all. He was to [sic] good of a dude!!" Still grieving, he allegedly wrote in a separate Story, "Man I swear I never cry, but this one got me bad fr ... got me weak, barley [sic] can think smh... R.I.P @pnbrock damn."
The post prompted reactions from social media users, who were confused by YK Osiris' alleged comments in this sensitive time. The message was quickly deleted from his page, with the 24-year-old star claiming that he didn't post the Story.
According to the Jacksonville native, someone who has access to his account was "looking for clout" when making the post. "It's sad for real I wouldn't even talk like that," he told The Shade Room, before insisting, "I don't play like that at all."
YK Osiris doubled down on his denial in the comment section of TSR's post. "I don't play like that, especially about my life. People are very miserable, want me to look bad," he wrote. "I don't need clout, I can break this s**t at any giving time have y'all in a mood. Stop it."
Rock, born Rakim Hasheem Allen, was fatally shot on Monday afternoon, September 12 during a robbery in a Los Angeles restaurant. He and his girlfriend Stephanie Sibounheuang were dining at the Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles restaurant in Inglewood when the incident took place.
Capt. Kelly Muniz indicated it appeared the shooter targeted Rock, because no one else was shot or assaulted. "He shot the victim and ran out the side door to a getaway car and then fled the parking lot," she said. She added the victim was transported to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead at 1:59 P.M. He was 30.
Following his passing, tribute has poured in from the hip-hop community. Among the mourners was NBA YoungBoy a.k.a. YoungBoy Never Broke Again, who posted a picture of him and the late star. He simply captioned it with, "Rip #pnbrock" and a praying hands and a green heart emoji.
