More information regarding Pop Smoke’s murder continues to surface. Recently, it was revealed that the suspects that stormed into the West Hollywood property that the Brooklyn rapper was in on February 19, 2020, stormed in from the second level. One of them was 15-years-old, as Smoke was shot while leaving the shower and a woman was held at gun point. Smoke was also kicked while on the ground and shot when he ran.
These suspects initially wanted Smoke’s diamond Rolex and Cuban link chain. The watch ended up being sold for shockingly, only $2,000. Now, the family of one of the suspects, 20-year-old Corey Walker, wants to have a conversation with Smoke’s mother, Audrey Jackson, according to the New York Daily News.
Christopher Darden revealed this information to the outlet. Darden had previously represented Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer, Eric Holder, but soon withdrew his services. Darden currently has Walker’s re-arraignment postponed from June 3 to July 6, as he is obtaining transcripts and attempting to receive a declaration from prosecutors that helps Walker avoid the death penalty.
“The Walker family has asked me to contact the victim’s family so that they might speak privately. I hope to reach out to the family soon,” Darden said, also adding in a later statement, “I will also understand if (his mom) is not inclined to have that conversation. Everything we have done and said has been done and said while keeping in mind the great respect we have for the victim and the victim’s family.”
As far as Jackson’s response, she has no definitely answer. Right now, she is simply focused on her work as a New York City Department of Education teacher.
“This is new information to me. I’ll have to learn more,” said Jackson in response, to the Daily News. “I’m working on a lesson plan right now. That is my focus. I really can’t say.”
This year, Smoke was also nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap Performance for “Dior.” For the BBMAs, he was nominated for 10 awards, and took home three. These were for Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Male Artist, and Top Rap Album and Top Billboard 200 album for his chart-topping 2020 posthumous debut album, “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon.”
