NEW HEAT FOR YOUR PLAYLIST: PNB ROCK
PNB ROCK “I LIKE GIRLS”
Born Rakim Allen, the singer and rapper—who prefers to describe himself as an “artist”—garnered his creative chops and stage name from the intersection of Pastorius and Baynton in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, where he grew up. His streetwise melodies come from a real place. A self-described “problem child,” he was kicked out of his mother’s house at 15 and turned to selling drugs and squatting in abandoned homes to get by. At 19, he was sent to prison for violating probation and there, discovered his musical talents. “I could touch different topics that these other artists can’t touch, because I’m in the streets,” he explains. He honed his vocal sound while incarcerated, recording tracks like “Fleek” that would end up on his 2014 debut mixtape RNB.
PNB Rock is part of a new generation of unlikely heartthrobs straddling the lines between R&B and hip-hop, warble-rapping about refusing to commit.
