It has been reported that platinum-selling hip hop artist, who forged his way out Philadelphia to become one of the most sought after, upcoming artists of his generation has passed away as stated by LA Times. Unfortunately, his time was cut short on Monday (September 12), after he was shot and killed during an armed robbery at a Los Angeles Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles restaurant.

The “Selfish” rapper, whose real name is Rakim Hasheem Allen, was immediately transported to a hospital after the shooting, but ultimately didn’t pull through. He was pronounced dead at 1:59 p.m. PST. According to eyewitnesses, the attack was a full on robbery attempt at taking the rapper’s jewelry after his girlfriend posted a location-tagged photo of the couple’s whereabouts in a since-deleted Instagram post.
