PnB Rock’s girlfriend, Stephanie Sibounheuang, has memorialized the late rapper with a new tattoo ahead of his birthday.
With Friday (December 9) marking what would’ve been the Philly native’s 31st birthday, Sibounheuang paid tribute to her boo by getting his first name — Rakim — inscribed in script lettering on her neck.
Sibounheuang, who shares a two-year-old daughter with the slain rapper, unveiled her fresh ink on her Instagram Stories on Thursday (December 8).

PnB Rock (real name Rakim Allen) was shot and killed during a robbery at Roscoe’s House of Chicken & Waffles in South Los Angeles on September 12.
Three arrests have since been made in the investigation, and it’s a family affair as Freddie Lee Trone, his 17-year-old son (who is accused of being the triggerman) and his wife Shauna have all been apprehended. Police are still looking for a fourth suspect who may have played an instrumental role in his murder.
Freddie Lee Trone is facing charges of one count of murder, two counts of second-degree robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery. The teenage boy faces the same charges, while Shauna was hit with one count of being an accessory after the fact of the killing.
Following PnB Rock’s death, Sibounheuang wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram expressing her grief, while also revealing the rapper courageously saved her life during the fatal robbery.
“I am 100% not ok,” she wrote. “If I wasn’t spiritual I could kill my self (but then I’ll go to hell and my man not there) My man saved my life, Throwing me under that table. I’m not supposed to be here but bc of him. I am. No one would be able to handle this. TBH, I can’t even handle this.”
Sibounheuang had come under fire for sharing their location on Instagram prior to the shooting, but police later revealed Trone and his son were already in the parking lot of the restaurant when the couple arrived, dispelling the theory that her post inadvertently contributed to his death.
Cardi B was among those who came to the defense of Rock’s partner after the information came to light, tweeting: “Told y’all……Yall must not know how the hood moves. Y’all owe that girl a apology for the shit y’all put her through knowing that she saw her baby dad die in her face….Social media investigators YALL SUCK!!!!”
