The Hip-Hop world is still processing and trying to make sense of the tragic death of Pop Smoke on Wednesday (Feb.20). Initially, it was being reported that Brooklyn rapper was the victim of a “home invasion” in the Hollywood Hills, now TMZ is exclusively reporting that surveillance footage tells a different story.

The celebrity gossip site is reporting that people who have seen the footage are claiming that Pop Smoke was the victim of a planned hit, not a robbery that went wrong. In the footage, you do see 4 men walk up to the Hollywood Hills home about 4:30 AM and sneak around back.

After a few minutes pass, 3 out of the 4 men walk back to the front of the house. The 4th apparently walked through the backdoor that was not monitored by a surveillance video. As previously reported, there were gunshots, and all of them were directed at the “Welcome To The Party” rapper. The gunman can be seen exiting the house through the front door but empty-handed, which is quite suspicious.
