Rapper Pop Smoke shot and killed in Hollywood Hills, reports say

BROOKLYN — Pop Smoke’s Green-Wood Cemetery gravesite in Brooklyn was vandalized over the weekend, police said.

The report about problems at his crypt came in to the NYPD on Saturday morning, officials said. Vandals apparently tried to drag Pop Smoke’s casket out and smashed his crypt.

The rapper, 20, was shot and killed in the Hollywood Hills in February of 2020.

Pop Smoke, born Bashar Jackson, was originally from Brooklyn. His death came just days after the release of his new mixtape, “Meet the Woo 2.”
