20 year old Rapper Pop Smoke, an up and coming rapper from NY, has been shot dead in the L.A. house where he was staying on Wednesday, Feb 19th. The house had been broken into by 2 masked gunmen and several shots were fired. The police were called at around 4:20 AM by about 4:30, several shots had been fired in the house and the suspects had fled on foot. He was brought to the hospital and was pronounced dead upon arrival. The most heartbreaking factor was that this incident occurred just a few days after the release of his new mix-tape “Meet The Woo Two”. The police statement released stated that there is no information regarding the shooters and there are currently no immediate suspects.
Pop Smoke at only 20 had reached up and comer status, having the opportunity to work with musicians such as Travis Scott and Nicky Minaj. Yet sadly, death came for him too soon. Fellow rappers such as Nicky Minaj, 50 Cent and Ludacris tweeted out their condolences for the loss of such a talented artist that was robbed from the world way too soon. We here at Verbalizm are deeply saddened by the loss of such a talented artist, especially before he had a chance to grow into a much bigger success. Our hearts go out to his friends and family.
