Song of the Day #4,312: ‘Welcome to the Party’ – Pop Smoke

So far this week I’ve covered three deaths due to coronavirus and one due to a drug overdose. Today, we have good old-fashioned murder.

Rapper Pop Smoke was shot and killed during a home invasion at his Hollywood Hills residence. He was 20 years old.

Pop Smoke was best known for the song ‘Welcome to the Party,’ released a year ago and later made into remixes featuring Nicki Minaj and Skepta. If it weren’t for Nicki Minaj, nothing in the previous sentence would have made sense to me.

The rapper’s latest mixtape was released just two weeks before his death, in February of this year.

Hours before four masked men robbed and killed him, Pop Smoke posted a photo on Instagram of him and a friend holding stacks of cash. He also (accidentally?) posted his home address, which was written on a swag bag he was showing off.

Note to self: Don’t do that.

[Intro]
This is a Melo beat

[Chorus]
Baby, welcome to the party
I’m off the Molly, the Xan, the lean

‘Cause you could get hit

[Verse 1]
Don’t let that Henny in my system (Nah)
