Pop Smoke was shot and killed early Wednesday morning per TMZ reports. The rising Brooklyn rapper passed in what appears to be a home invasion in the Hollywood Hills around 4:30AM PST according to law enforcement sources on the scene. He was announced dead shortly after being rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood. Two suspects are currently at large and have yet to be identified.
Pop Smoke broke out earlier this summer with his hit single “Welcome to the Party” and followed up that effort with a star-studded Meet The Woo 2 featuring an ensemble cast of Quavo, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, Fivio Foreign and Lil Tjay. Just last week, the Canarsie, Brooklyn emcee revisited the effort with a number of new remixes and additional singles for Meet The Woo 2 [Deluxe Edition]. Pop Smoke was 20 years old.
