The Los Angeles Police Department provided few additional details.

“LAPD detectives have arrested three adult men and two minor men linked to the February 19 murder,” he said in a tweet. “We will provide further details as they become available.”

The arrests come less than a week after Friday’s release of the album “Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon”.

Universal Music Group had planned to release the album last month, but instead dropped the single “Make It Rain”, with an executive explaining that the delay was linked to manifestations of police brutality across the country.

“Music is the tool of the revolution. We have been watching, with the rest of the world, for a long time as expected changes begin to take root. We have seen Pop music become the soundtrack of the moment, uniting the masses”, Steven Victor, senior vice president at Universal, wrote on Instagram. “Given recent events, we decided to delay the release of his album out of respect for the movement.”

Pop Smoke was killed during a home invasion of a Hollywood Hills residence, police said. The 20-year-old enjoyed the success of his second-year mixtape, released the week before his murder.

Police received a call just before 5 am PST from “someone in the east” who reported that one of his friend’s homes had been robbed and that one of the suspects was armed with a handgun, The captain of the Los Angeles Police Department, Steve Lurie, said at the time.

Inside, the police found the rapper, who had been killed. He was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a few hours later, said the captain.

Several people were arrested and released in February. Witnesses told investigators that between two and six people broke into the home, one of them wearing a mask, said Lurie.

Pop Smoke was part of the Brooklyn drilling scene, popularized by Sheff G, who grew up listening to drilling pioneers, Chief Keef and G Herbo.

The rapper made a name for himself in the summer of 2019 with the release of his first mixtape, “Meet the Woo”, with the anthem with traps “Welcome to the Party”.

The video of the song trapped over 24 million views on YouTubeand hip-hop stars Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill have dropped remixes.
“My face, my voice was everywhere, you know what I’m saying?” Pop told iD magazine in an interview in December. “I knew it was going to be great when I started to see my face on the billboards.”
Pop Smoke performs at the Astroworld Festival in Houston, Texas in November.

The magazine titled its article, “Is Pop Smoke the New King of New York?” – a title generally reserved for the tastes of Nas, Jay-Z and The Notorious BIG

The Brooklyn-born rhyme then collaborated with Quavo, Travis Scott, HER, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie and Chris Brown.

Pop’s “Meet the Woo” tour was to begin with a sold-out show in Washington, DC on March 2.

In a profile from the New York Times 2019, the artist talked about his life before he became famous. His adolescence was described as “high risk and high reward”.

“You like beautiful things, you have to do things to get beautiful things,” he told the newspaper. “At 16, I had a 5 Series (BMW).”
