Weekdays 6-10am

As you’ve heard, 20 year old rapper Pop Smoke was murdered yesterday in a Hollywood home he was renting.  Initial reports was that he was killed in botched home invasion after he accidentally posted a picture on social media with his address in the backround and holding up wads of cash. However new reports from TMZ this morning is that his murder was NOT a robbery gone wrong, he was a target.  According to surveillance footage, you see 4 men approach the home at around 4:30 AM and leave carrying nothing. Pop Smoke was already making a name for himself.  His song that dropped last year “Welcome to the Party” was remixed by Nicki Minaj and he appeared on Travis Scott’s latest project “JACKBOYS.” His murder is under investigation and as of this morning there have been no arrests and no suspects have been named.
