Let’s refresh the timeline from the night of the killing of the young rapper. The 19th of February was the fatal night for the “Meet The Woo” creator. Pop Smoke was staying at his home in L.A, while he was surprised by the attackers who broke his property. Unfortunately, some altercations happened, and also there was shooting, which later led to transporting the rapper to the nearest hospital in the city Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Soon after that, the rapper was pronounced dead.
According to the facts several people were wearing masks and an uncounted number of shots were made that same night. In the memory of the young rapper, his team released a posthumous album Shoot for The Stars, Aim For The Moon executively produced by 50 Cent. The album is available everywhere since the 3rd of July. The family also launched a non-profit organization, whose aim is to help the new generation of young rappers.
