“Brooklyn is in mourning right now.”

Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke was shot and killed early Wednesday morning in an apparent home invasion in Los Angeles. He was just 20 years old. The rapper had released his new mixtape, Meet the Woo 2, earlier this month, and was considered one of New York City’s rising stars as part of the Brooklyn drill scene.

His death sent shockwaves through the industry, prompting an outpouring of memorials and tributes from artists across the spectrum:
