Pop Smoke Dead - Rapper Killed in Apparent Home Invasion at Age 20

Rapper Pop Smoke has reportedly been shot and killed in a home invasion robbery.

The 20-year-old entertainer was at his Hollywood Hills home on Wednesday morning (February 19) when 2 men reportedly in masks and hoodies broke in at around 4:30 am, TMZ reports.

The two men reportedly began shooting and shot and killed Pop Smoke, who’s real name is Bashar Barakah Jackson.

He was quickly taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center but was pronounced dead.

Pop Smoke‘s “Welcome to the Party” was a massive hit over the summer and was even remixed by Nicki Minaj.

The last photos we have of Pop Smoke are from just a few weeks ago, when he attended the Louis Vuitton Menswear Fall/Winter 2020-2021 show on January 16 in Paris, France. You can see those photos in the gallery of this post.

We’re remembering all the stars we’ve lost this year. RIP to Pop Smoke.
