This morning TMZ reported that up-and-coming rapper Pop Smoke was killed in a Hollywood Hills home invasion.

It was roughly 4:30am when the home invaders arrived at the property and shot Pop, who was pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood.

No descriptions were immediately available of the suspects, who were wearing masks, police said. The entertainment publication learned from the Los Angeles Police Department that two men were seen fleeing the scene. He came to prominence last summer thanks to the song "Welcome to the Party", which quickly became a raucous anthem in Brooklyn and beyond.

Bashar Jackson, better known as the rapper Pop Smoke, has died.

"We are devastated by the unexpected and tragic loss of Pop Smoke", said a rep for Republic Records, to which the rapper is signed via the imprint Victor Victor. It's unclear if Pop Smoke knew the shooters.
