In February 2020, rapper Pop Smoke was killed in West Hollywood. Several weeks later, his fans, friends and family took part in a funeral procession in his home neighborhood of Canarsie in Brooklyn. Thousands of people turned out to witness the horse drawn carriage bearing the performer’s casket. “This is his community,” one mourner told InsideEdition.com. Others shouted “Long live Pop Smoke,” Thank you, Pop,” and “We love you!” Pop Smoke was 20 years old.
