The 17-year-old son of Freddie Trone Lee was Arrested in connection with the PNB Rock murder.
New updates come up on the surface that Police arrested the 17-year-old son of Freddie Trone Lee in connection with the PNB Rock murder; as the son was the shooter & his dad drove the getaway car.
In the aftermath of Philadelphia rapper PNB Rock’s murder in Los Angeles earlier this month, a Minnesota man has come forward to clear his name after being implicated by the rap blogosphere. (Read More Here).
Emmanuel Danquah, aka South Side Chief, is a Minneapolis-based videographer and media personality who had a pair of Instagram Live arguments with PNB Rock over an allegedly stolen shirt design.
In the days after PNB Rock’s fatal shooting while dining at a South L.A Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles, the clips were shared on YouTube and social media platforms, rebranded with sensationalist titles describing him as the killer.
Despite there being no evidence that Danquah is a suspect in the murder, YouTubers, and rap blog accounts decided to misrepresent their 2021 disagreement as one that took place days, even minutes, before PNB Rock’s shooting.
Danquah told show host Drea Oppan that he and PNB Rock argued on Instagram last year after the rapper used a photo from the post-George Floyd uprising that Danquah had previously used for a shirt design that gained notoriety in Minneapolis. When PNB Rock posted the shirt,
featuring a picture of a burning building, to his Instagram accounts, people tagged Danquah, and the two eventually confronted each other on IG Live.
During one of the exchanges, PNB Rock exclaimed to viewers, “give this man all the clout he wants, he just reachin.
’” The two men went back and forth, then Danquah threatened to take PNB Rock’s chain off his neck, and asked, “where you at?”
At the end of the session, after PNB Rock called him a “bitch” and logged off, Danquah said,
“bet, I’m make you eat that.”
YouTubers linked those comments to PNB Rock’s fatal robbery, where jewelry was taken from him and ran wild.
Despite the unfortunate coincidence of Danquah’s statements, he says that he played up the disagreement to capitalize on the newfound attention.
“I’m knowing in my head, ‘okay, I’m finally getting the national attention for this, I’mma play it out like this,’”
he told YouTuber TruthTeller TV in another interview.
“But everything that I’m standing on is real shit…you really took my shirt.”
Danquah admits that “it wasn’t much for me to do except poke at him online,” but his attempts to add “gasoline” to their disagreement ended up backfiring thanks to the internet.
Danquah also revealed that he and Rock were on good terms before his passing and were planning a charity boxing match to raise funds to help rebuild Minneapolis following the destruction caused during the 2020 George Floyd protests.
“When we had our last talks, we weren’t at odds,”
he said. “He was a real one. He was gonna give me an opportunity to change both of our lives with this fight that we were promoting … I’m thankful for that.”
