Rapper Pop Smoke, who was best known for the 2016 song “The Whole Truth,” has died after a reported home invasion in Los Angeles on Monday night. According to reports, members of a motorcycle gang entered Pop Smoke’s house and assaulted him.
“Pop died from gun shot wounds last night after being shot during a home invasion in the 400 block of East 112th Street in South LA,” the L.A. County coroner’s office told the Associated Press. He was 39.
The rap artist released “The Whole Truth” as part of the soundtrack for the film Captain Fantastic.
“These guys broke in. They kicked in my door. They shot him. And then I freaked out,” Pop Smoke’s partner, Rap, told Paper Magazine last year. “He was the only thing I knew. I don’t think I’ll ever want to hear another rap song again.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, there is currently no reason to believe that the “home invasion” was connected to the rapper’s passing. According to the report, he’d just gotten out of the hospital on Sunday after an alleged overdose.
