During an interview at SXSW PnB Rock got a little personal and shared his story from homelessness to the Billboard Top 100 charts. He said that two years ago- when he was fresh out of prison and homeless- he never though that’d he’d be where he is today. Rock said he had no family or friends but just a book of music and Instagram. He credited IG with helping him to put his music out there and being the platform that catapulted him to fame. He shouted out his hometown of Philly and said that he will continue to be real and transparent about his journey through his music.
