Wednesday morning we have learned that up coming rapper Pop Smoke was killed in Los Angeles. Brooklyn native Bashar Jackson aka Pop Smoke was killed in a possible home invasion. Police were called to the Hollywood Hills home where Pop Smoke was staying around 4:30am. They were told by witnesses several men, anywhere between 2 & 6 men came into the home, at least one with a gun and a mask. It was reported that 4 men ran from the home. When police arrived they found victim with multiple gun shot wounds. Police detained people inside the home but released them shortly after. In the video Paramedics are seen performing CPR on the rapper (click on the picture to take you to more info and video). He was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Police are investigating and trying to find a possible motive. It has not been said what if anything was taken from the home at the time of the break-in. There were pictures on social media that were posted by Pop Smoke with the address to the home, so police are looking into that being if the rapper was targeted or not.
Such a sad ending for another bright young star. Let's keep his family and friends in our prayers.
