His post arrives after more details of Smoke's final moments were revealed during a hearing for one of the murder suspects on Thursday, May 6. According to LAPD detective Christian Carrasco, the slain rapper was ambushed by masked men when he was in the shower at an Airbnb in Los Angeles on February 19, 2020.
They went in to the house through the curtains of a second-story balcony. One of them allegedly pressed a black semiautomatic firearm to the forehead of a woman who was with Smoke in his bedroom that night, while the others rushed into the adjoining bathroom.
The woman claimed she heard "a struggle coming from the shower area and heard Mr. Jackson screaming. Mr. Jackson ran out of the bathroom and then she heard a loud pop and [heard] Mr. Jackson fall to the ground." Carrasco added, "Two other individuals began to kick him." Despite that, Smoke was still alive and tried to go upstairs until she heard "two more pops." The woman then found him on the ground before calling 911.
