Stephanie Sibounheuang talked about the circumstances of life after his death during an Instagram Live session.

"No, he did not have life insurance," she said. "No, he did not have a will. We didn't have nothing set up. We're so young, we don't plan on death.

"I don't even get death benefits, I don't get nothing, and I'm not gonna ask nobody for nothing," Stephanie explained. Moreover, she also took a chance to talk about her personal process. "I have that personality and I'm working on that. I'm trying to, you know, empty myself of my ego and my pride because I'm not gonna ask nobody for nothing."

Meanwhile, Sibounheuang broke her silence on her boyfriend's murder just a couple of months ago. Moreover, she recounted how he pushed her under the table during the shooting to save her from danger. From what she said in the recent IG clip, she likely feels incredibly fortunate for the help considering her perspective.

"I don't care. I could be on fire and I'm not even gonna ask you to spit on me," she continued. "I'm trying to stop being like that, but God, he's been making the way, he's been making the way. I'm so grateful, I'm so grateful for y'all."

Whether outside of the rap world or within it, PnB Rock is cherished and celebrated. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie recently opened up to Billboard about how his friend's passing affected him.
