Pop Smoke’s Brooklyn gravesite was mysteriously vandalized

Pop Smoke’s gravesite at Green-Wood cemetery in Brooklyn was vandalized and desecrated Sept. 11.

The vile act’s perpetrators and motive are currently unknown, as photos of the defaced tomb were captured and shared by TMZ. The late-rapper’s crypt is visibly cracked open in the photos, alluding to his casket being brought out of its chamber. Scrape marks and chipped marble have also been reported to be seen at the site.

This troubling news surfaces after more information came to light regarding the young superstar’s untimely death early last year. Pop was shot and killed in a home invasion in February 2020 at his Hollywood Hills mansion in Los Angeles.

In May, new details emerged surrounding the killing, in which five people have been arrested for — including a 15-year-old suspect. Both of Pop Smoke’s posthumous albums, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon and Faith, have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, however, has left his likeness in sour taste by family members and close friends after his team had “emptied his vault.”
