UPDATE:

Pop Smoke's record label, Republic Records, has issued a statement on his death.

ORIGINAL STORY:

Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke was reportedly shot and killed in Los Angeles on Wednesday (Feb. 19) leaving the hip-hop world in shock.

According to TMZ, the incident occurred at a home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Hollywood Hills and appears to be the result of an attempted home invasion. According to law enforcement, two to six men broke into the home with at least one of them wearing a ski mask. During the purported break-in, multiple shots were fired in the home, with Smoke reportedly being struck and killed. Afterward, the suspects reportedly fled the scene. The rapper was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was reportedly pronounced dead. The incident is currently under investigation.

In the wake of Pop Smoke's reported death, the hip-hop community is heartbroken. Many including 50 Cent, Nicki Minaj and more have hopped on social media to express their feelings about the news and pay homage to their fellow rap artist.

Smoke was one of the most buzz-worthy artists on the East Coast with tracks like "Welcome to the Party," "PTSD" and "Dior" helping raise his stock. He is fresh off the release of his new project Meet the Woo 2. Late last year, he spoke with XXL about his come-up and becoming one of the hottest artists in NYC. He was only 20 years old.

R.I.P. Pop Smoke.
