Pop Smoke was on his way to prominence in hip-hop

Up-and-coming rapper Pop Smoke was the victim in what appears to be a home invasion robbery on Wednesday morning in his Hollywood Hills abode.

We’ll spare you the details about his murder because you’ve probably heard about it by now. Pop Smoke was well on his way as an emerging rapper. He released an album last July and the song “Welcome to the Party” blew up. That marked his ascension in hip-hop and was among last summer’s hits. Pop Smoke was also known for his song with Travis Scott titled “GATTI.”

Two men allegedly fired multiple shots, which struck Pop Smoke and eventually killed him. The two men were spotted fleeing the scene on foot. Pop Smoke was only 20 years old.
