As the masses come to terms with the tragic killing of rapper Pop Smoke aged just 20, the star’s family have broken their silence in a moving statement.
The MC, real name Bashar Jackson, was gunned down at his Los Angeles residence in what authorities believe was a targeted hit. And, as at writing, the investigation into the callous crime hasn’t yielded an arrest.
Still his family, who are based in New York, aren’t letting that stop them from honoring his life and thanking fans for their support.
Words from The Jacksons below…
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pop’s family and friends.
