Today has been marked as a Black Wednesday following the murder of top American rapper, Pop Smoke.
The fast-rising rapper was fatally shot in Hollywood Hills, Calif., early Wednesday after two men suspected to be criminals broke into a home.
Pop Smoke was just aged 20.
Los Angeles police confirmed to the Daily News that a 20-year-old black male was fatally shot after an unknown number of masked men entered a Hollywood Hills home at around 4:29 AM.
Celebrities Buzz has chanced on a video from the scene where the crime was committed.
In the video, Pop Smoke was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood where he was pronounced dead.
The suspects have not been caught and as far as we know they have not been identified. It’s unclear if Pop Smoke knew the shooters. One man was placed in handcuffs but cops determined he was not involved and was released.
Pop Smoke released an album back in July and one of the songs, “Welcome to the Party,” blew up … it was considered by many the song of the summer. Nicki Minaj did a remix of the song a few months later. He also did a song, “Gatti,” with Travis Scott.
