The 20-year-old Brooklyn rapper, whose legal name is Bashar Barakah Jackson, died at his Hollywood Hills home on February 19 of a gunshot wound to the torso, according to the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office. A 911 call from a friend of someone in the house reported armed intruders inside the home, police said.

Smoke released two mixtapes, 2019’s Meet the Woo and its 2020 sequel, Meet the Woo 2. He was best known for his 2019 single “Welcome to the Party” with Nicki Minaj and Skepta, as well as this year’s “Christopher Walking,” “Dior” and a remix of H.E.R.’s “Slide” that also featured A Boogie Wit da Hoodie and Chris Brown.

He earned his first Hot 100 entry with the song “Gatti” from Travis Scott’s Jackboys album.
