Pop Smoke was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead on February 19. It's unclear what the suspects are being charged with, but all five will reportedly be interviewed by police before being booked. He was said to be staying at a home in the Hollywood Hills-area when several men broke into the home around 4 a.m. The LAPD has said it will provide further information once it is available.
A press conference later detailed that there were between two and six suspects in total. He was just 20 years old. Fif not only spoke at the funeral, but also took over creative control of Pop's album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, which has been performing exceptionally well on the charts since its release. Last week, the album, which dropped on July 3 after a slight delay, was projected to move 175,000-195,000 units.
His family announced a non-profit foundation named Shoot for the Stars, which the rapper founded before his death, with a focus on helping inner-city youth and helping to turn "their pain into Champagne by making their dreams a reality".
