"LAPD Detectives have arrested three adult males & two juvenile males related to the Feb 19th murder of Bashar Jackson, a NY based rapper known as Pop Smoke", police tweeted Thursday. He was just 20 years old. He's a New York-based rapper, known as Pop Smoke. He was said to be staying at a home in the Hollywood Hills-area when several men broke into the home around 4 a.m.

"It's our belief that (the home-invasion robbery) was based on some of the social media" posts, Tippet said. The home where the shooting occurred is owned by Edwin Arroyave and his wife Teddi Mellencamp, daughter of Rock & Roll Hall-of-Famer John Mellencamp and a star of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'.

Although the new album was officially Pop Smoke's debut, he had risen to popularity on the strength of two mixtape collections, 2019's "Meet the Woo" and February's "Meet the Woo 2." . "It was the follow up to his first official release, ' Meet the Woo.' He also had the popular hit 'Gatti" with Travis Scott and Jackboys and 'Dior'.

The arrests come almost five months after the Brooklyn rapper was shot and killed. The 19-track album featured several star-studded guests including 50 Cent, Roddy Rich, Future, Swae Lee, Quavo and others.
