Contents Biography and career

Bashar Barakah Jackson was born on July 20, 1999, in Brooklyn, New York, to a Jamaican mother and a Panamanian father.[8][9] He got into music in 2018 while hanging around other recording artists during their studio sessions. He initially began by remixing popular songs within the New York City drill music scene, before embarking on creating original music which catapulted him to fame. In a Genius interview, he stated that his artist name of Pop Smoke is a combination of Papa (a nickname given to him by his Panamanian grandmother) and Smoke Oh Guap (a nickname given to him by childhood friends).[10]

In April 2019, he released his breakout single, "Welcome to the Party", the lead single of his debut mixtape, Meet the Woo (2019). The song was later remixed, featuring Nicki Minaj and Skepta in August 2019. Other well-known songs of his include: "Mpr", "Flexin" and "Dior". Since the popularity of "Welcome to the Party", he has collaborated with other popular artists on singles such as: "War" featuring Lil Tjay, "100k on a Coupe" featuring Calboy. In December, Pop was featured on "Gatti" with JackBoys and Travis Scott in, which was featured on the JackBoys (2019) album by Scott and his Cactus Jack members.[11]

In February 2020, Pop Smoke released his second mixtape Meet the Woo 2 with features from Quavo, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Fivio Foreign and Lil Tjay.[12] The following week of its release, a deluxe edition was released featuring three new songs including: "Wolves" with Nav, Dior (Remix) with Gunna and "Like Me" with PnB Rock.[13]

Legal issues

On January 17, 2020, Jackson was arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on a charge of transporting a stolen vehicle across state lines. The vehicle was a Rolls-Royce Wraith, whose owner had reported stolen after Jackson had reportedly borrowed it in California for a music video shoot on the condition it would be returned the next day. The car was recovered by authorities at Jackson's mother's house in the Canarsie area of Brooklyn, and contained Alabama license plates and tinted windows. Jackson pleaded not guilty and was released on $250,000 bail on the same day.[14]

Death

Jackson was transported to a nearby hospital after being fatally shot during an invasion of his home in Hollywood Hills, California at 4 in the morning. He was pronounced dead. The suspects are at large.[15]
