Pop Smoke, an up and coming rapper, was shot and killed Wednesday morning in what seems to be a home invasion robbery ..according to TMZ
The rapper was at a home in the Hollywood Hills close to 4:30 AM when two men wearing hoodies and masks broke into a house … this according to law enforcement sources. Reports told tmz that the two men fired multiple shots, hitting and critically wounding Pop Smoke. The men were seen running on foot.
Pop Smoke was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood where he was pronounced dead.
The suspects have not been caught and as far as we know they have not been identified. We’re not sure if Pop Smoke knew the shooters. One man was placed in handcuffs but cops determined he was not involved and was released.
Pop Smoke released an album back in July and one of the songs, “Welcome to the Party,” blew up … it was considered by many the song of the summer. Nicki Minaj did a remix of the song a few months later. He also did a song, “Gatti,” with Travis Scott.
Pop Smoke was 20.
