We hate to start the day off with bad news guys, but rising brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke was killed earlier this morning in a home invasion in Hollywood Hills, California. Pop smoke whose real name is Bashar Barakah Jackson seems to be the only victim of the botched robbery. Sources say that LAPD strangely received a phone call from someone on the east coast around 5 am that their friend had been shot in Hollywood Hills. After police and medics arrived Pop Smoke was rushed to Cedars Sanai Medical center. Unfortunately Doctors were not able to save him as he was pronounced dead hours later. At this time there are no suspects.
Its truly sad the young rapper was living life. With just releasing his “Meet The Woo Vol. 2” project on February 7th 2020. Its truly another sad day in hiphop as we lose another young rapper before their time. Remember everyone the world is a beautiful but crazy place so spread love and positive vibes.
