The Brooklyn rapper was found wounded in his Hollywood Hills rental home and later pronounced dead at the hospital.
On Wednesday early morning LAPD received a call from the East Coast stating that, “several people, at least one of whom wore a black mask and was armed with a handgun, had entered their friend’s home in Los Angeles shortly before 5 a.m.”
Officers found Pop Smoke, who’s real name is Bashar Barakah Jackson, with gunshot wounds. He was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Pop Smoke’s career was just starting to take off. A young king in the making. Our hears and prayers go out to his family. RIP Pop Smoke!
