A Brooklyn-born rapper Pop Smoke, who was killed in Los Angeles last year, is being honored and remembered by the community Tuesday with a parade.
A mural of Pop Smoke, which was painted by local artist Kenny Altidor, is the spot where a parade will kick off.
Pop Smoke would have been 22 years old today. He was killed during a home invasion in Los Angeles in February 2020.
Today, his life will be celebrated during the second annual Pop Smoke Day. That parade will begin in Brooklyn alongside with a slew of festivities in the late rapper’s honor. A marching band is expected along with lots of activities for the kids like face painting. There will also be basketball games going on all day at Seaview Park.
The parade is expected to start at 11 a.m. Tuesday near the C-Town on East 80th and Flatlands with the festivities wrapping up around 5 p.m.
