Fat Joe raised a few eyebrows after saying he was okay with PnB Rock being robbed last month but not killed.
In a new interview, however, the Bronx rapper said he was heavily affected by the murder.
“Every time a rapper is killed, it hurts me,” said Joe on the PEOPLE Every Day podcast. “But that one really changed my life because they murdered the guy in a public restaurant in front of his [family]. If they do that, they’re willing to do anything. And it’s just so sad, man ... That just touched me so much 'cause I’m just like, imagine I was in that restaurant with my daughter just eating … It’s just traumatizing for the whole community."
"And it touched me in a different way and I’ve had friends murdered and everything," he added. "This last one, it was just like, it was just, all right, I get it, you don’t care. You’ll do it anywhere ... He didn’t deserve to get murdered.”
Rock was killed on September 12 at House of Chicken 'N Waffles in South Central LA.
Three people were arrested afterward. Freddie Lee Trone, who's 40, his 17-year-old son, who's accused of firing the weapon, and a 38-year-old woman named Shauntel Trone, who's been slapped with one count of accessory after the fact.
