Bashar Barakah Jackson, known professionally as Pop Smoke was reportedly murdered in a home invasion robbery early this morning.
Pop Smoke, one of the rising stars in Brooklyn’s growing drill scene, was reportedly murdered after a home invasion in his Hollywood Hills home. As reported by TMZ, the recording artist was targeted in a home invasion robbery, being critically injured by two masked men wearing hoodies who broke into his house. The two men reportedly fled the scene on foot after firing multiple gunshots at Pop Smoke.
The break-in took place at approximately 4:30 AM on Wednesday morning. Pop Smoke was rushed to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Thus far, the suspects have not been arrested and it is unclear if the rapper knew his shooters. One man was handcuffed but it was later determined that he had no connection to the crime.
But it seems they’re wrong and his death could have been a random one as it has been revealed that the artist accidentally revealed his own address to the world in a video posted hours before his murder.

#PressPlay: It seems as though #PopSmoke may have unintentionally posted the address to his location on his Facebook story. As previously reported, the home he was staying in belongs to #RealHousewivesOfBeverlyHills’ #TeddiMellencamp’s husband, Edwin Arroyave, who owns multiple rental properties in the Los Angeles area.
