PnB told Akademiks: “I’m not superstitious or nothing (sic) like that… but I haven’t been robbed.

“I’m not going to put myself in those situations because I know what happens in those situations.”

PnB recalled the moment when he and his family were targeted by a group of people in Fairfax, LA, during thepandemic.

He said: “They (Gangsters) see me with my family and they think I’m lacking.”

PnB claimed he and his family were being followed as she tried to park the car.

He said: “Somebody came fast as s**t and took the parking spot.

“I’m like, dude, ‘he must’ve been following me or something’. How the f**k does a car get behind me so fast? They’re quick as s**t.”

The rapper said there was “no way” he was going to get out of the car to go to the store as he detected unusual vibes.

Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department toldRolling Stonethat PnB was eating when an unknown suspect approached him.

She said that they fired several shots before fleeing the scene.

Meanwhile, a security guard revealed he told the rapper to be calm and “get control” of his breathing.

The guard, who hasn't been named, admitted that he couldn’t recall anything about the suspect.

He said: “God put me in a position to not see s**t.”
