RIP Pop Smoke.
At just 20 years of age, rapper, Pop Smoke was murdered in a home invasion robbery in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, law enforcement confirmed that two masked men arrived at Pop’s Hollywood Hills home around 4:30 AM. They broke into the house and fired multiple shots – one critically injuring Pop Smoke. Witnesses say the men were seen fleeing on foot. Pop, whose real name is Bashar Jackson, was rushed to Cedars-Sina Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
This morning, the Hip Hop community took to social media to mourn yet another devastating loss. The promising Hip Hop newcomer was remembered by fellow artists all morning. Nicki Minaj, who collaborated with the Brooklyn rapper paid tribute to her friend along with what seems to be a reference to his killers: “the Bible tells us that jealousy is a cruel as the grave. Unbelievable. Rest In Peace, Pop.”
Among other artists who paid their respect online were 50 Cent, Ludacris, Quavo, Tyga, Nas, The Game and more.
