On Instagram, stars including Nicki Minaj and Snoop Dogg paid their respects to the rapper.
Minaj posted: “The Bible tells us that jealousy is as cruel as the grave. Unbelievable. Rest In Peace, Pop (sic)”
Snoop added: “R. I. P. Lil homie. damn I’m hurt all ova again Gone2soon (sic)”
Pop Smoke released his new mixtape, Meet The Woo 2, days before his death, and was considered one of New York City’s rising stars as part of the Brooklyn drill scene.
Meanwhile, 50 Cent announced this week that he is going to executive produce the star’s posthumous album.
The “In Da Club” hitmaker is determined to finish the record and has even reached out to fellow rappers Drake and Roddy Ricch to get them involved.
Alongside two snaps of himself outside and inside his private jet, 50 — whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III — wrote on Instagram: “I’m on the move listening to Pop smoke, I decided I’m gonna executive produce and finish his album for him.#abcforlife #starzgettheapp #lecheminduroi #bransoncognac (sic)”
