Pop Smoke has reportedly been shot and killed in what TMZ reports was a home invasion robbery. The 20-year-old rapper was apparently murdered in his Hollywood Hills home earlier today at 04:30 AM.
Details of the robbery are still unclear, but according to the report two men in hoodies and masks broke into “a house,” fired multiple shots, and fled on foot. Pop Smoke was rushed to hospital by ambulance where he was reportedly pronounced dead.
At the time of writing, no suspects have been identified. One man was reportedly placed in handcuffs but cops determined he was not involved and was subsequently released.
Pop Smoke was an up-and-coming rapper at the beginning of a very promising career. He dropped his debut album Meet The Woo 2 just last week, which was already being lauded as one of the best hip-hop releases of the year. May he rest in peace.
