Pop Smoke's close friend and housemate, Mike Dee, has spoken about the rapper's death after being accused by fans of setting him up.
The news of Pop Smoke's tragic murder this morning at a residence in the Hollywood Hills has caused fans of the late Brooklyn star to investigate the matter to the best of their abilities on social media. One of the first places they went to was his childhood friend Mike Dee's profile, where some people allegedly noticed that he had deleted posts and changed some of his captions after Smoke's death became public information. One of the key instances that people are pointing to is a video of the two where a portion of Smoke's address is visible. Searching for somebody to blame, the rapper's fans began to look at Mike, which is truly unfair to the man considering he just lost his friend. Mike was staying with Pop Smoke in Los Angeles, but his whereabouts during the shooting are unknown. Speaking out about what happened this morning, the aspiring actor hit social media with a message.
