  1. Man, I still get pissed everyday thinking about how he died. He wasn’t in a beef with anyone, he was also getting away from gang life and was just minding his own business and trying to live a good life. He was stolen. Rest in Piece Pop Smoke or Bashar Jackson 💫💙

  2. Pop smoke walked around like he was unstoppable and untouchable! That’s not a way to live ! He should have stopped all that gang banging shit when he got sucessful. Don’t run away from the streets just to keep the same habits going ! This is why you shouldn’t flex your money ! Makes you a target !!

  3. That’s a 🔥 statement… you can get killed anywhere 🤷🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ why you think cardis still in the hood often 🤦🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️

    Oh I'm shocked this happened…. So young…. So talented. You people are fucking insane. He was trash. Someone took him out.

  5. Pop smoke rapped about bein a crip and bein a shooter , yet y’all are so surprised that when he comes to LA(the gang capital of the country) that he gets robbed Or killed?? Y’all so retarded. Shit like this BEEN happening . Your favorite rapper comes to LA and gets extorted by LA gangs. Only reason 69 isn’t dead right now is because he made the right connections with certain people and hid his location. Pop smoke shoulda knew better….

  6. When are you young folks going to learn about the gangs"" I knew this was gang-related cuz throwing up them gang signs, so why the gang is still alive he's dead, we are young people don't get when you die you die by yourself , you get put in that box alone not with your friends or anyone else, and what are you representing makes no sense at all, God made this world, not your gang friends or anybody else this world don't belong to a gang it belongs to God God made it not man, when it's all said and done you go back to the dust that you can so if you going to represent anything you better represent God
