Pop Smoke was shot and killed in his Hollywood Hills home at 04:30 AM Wednesday morning in what TMZ now reports could have been a targeted hit. He was 20 years old. No arrests have been made at present but you can find the full story as it develops here.

Ever since news of Pop Smoke's passing broke earlier this week, heartfelt messages from his industry peers began flooding in. Lil Tjay is the latest to pay tribute to the late East Coast rapper. In a new track titled "Forever Pop," Tjay's lyrics explore Pop Smoke's legacy and attempt to make sense of the tragic event.

"Took you out your glory, who wanna see you lose? /  Woke up in the mornin', see my nigga on the news / And I'm still like "Damn," tryna put together screws ... / Said a lot, but still it feel like I ain't even speak yet / Tryna hit a pocket that I still ain't even reach yet / But I still can't comprehend this shit, it hit me in the heart."

"Forever Pop" samples Pop Smoke's track "Like Me." Listen below and keep scrolling for more tributes.
