Back in February, Pop was Smoke was shot and killed in a home he was staying in located in the Hollywood Hills. Unfortunately, the investigation into the up and coming Brooklyn rapper’s murder has stalled due to the coronavirus.
The killing seems like it was obviously either an inside job or a targeted hit (the killers, four men, knew exactly where to go and dipped out without being caught), but the cops reportedly have no leads.
Born Bashar Jackson, Pop Smoke was just 20 years old at the time of his death. The “Dior” rapper was coming off just dropping his second commercial mixtape, Meet The Woo 2, and was a leader in the Brooklyn drill music scene.
Rest in power Pop Smoke.
