Pop Smokes 2020 murder at a Los Angeles area Airbnbis still resonating with Hip Hop as his alleged killers are set to stand trial Numerous individuals have spoken up about the Brooklyn rappers untimely murder but noted West Coast manager Wack 100says Pops death could have been prevented. During a recent visit to the No Jumper Podcast, Wack informed host Adam22 and company how certain unwritten rules for up and coming artists need to be met when visiting the West Coast and avoiding all private residences in the process. Go check into that W Hollywood, Wack 100 said. Stay away from them Airbnbs on this West Coast until you get your weight up, til you get your politics right. Go to one of them hotels bro and be safe about it. When asked about Pops murder, Wack disclosed how a fateful conversation days before could have altered everything. I told him four days before to get that man out of there and send him to the W, Wack said. I was in Europe and Avery or Monte Lipman (of Republic Records) had called through Birdman and they were kinda asking me stuff. I told him, Get him out of there and send him to the W Hotel. I started getting calls from my people that the homegirls was up there and this and that. Id just advise when yall on your way up, take small steps.
