Pop Smoke’s tragic death has been detailed by the woman who witnessed the shooting.
Amelia Rose, who was with the Brooklyn rapper when he was gunned down during a home invasion in February 2020, shared a harrowing account of his murder on the premiere episode of WE tv’s Hip Hop Homicides, which aired earlier this month.
Rose told host Van Lathan she remembers Pop going upstairs to use the bathroom inside the Hollywood Hills home he was renting at the time.
Moments later, she was struck with fear when intruders broke into the property and pointed a gun in her face.
Rose went on to tearfully recall how Pop Smoke was taken out of the bathroom by the armed intruders, and after a brief commotion, she heard the fatal gunshot ring out.
Elsewhere in the episode, Rose admitted she has trouble sleeping at night and is still shocked that she survived the home invasion that claimed the 20-year-old rapper’s life.
Four men have been charged in the rapper’s murder, including the alleged killer who was just 15 years old at the time.
Police believe the motive behind the attack was to steal Pop Smoke’s diamond-encrusted Rolex and Cuban link chain. They only managed to swipe his watch and later sold it for just $2,000.
