22Gz Offers Pop Smoke’s Family Condolences Despite Past Beef
In a recent tweet, he wrote;
“All beef aside, I feel sorry for boy,” he wrote. “This type of stuff is the reason I move with who I move with and move the way we move. Becoming another casualty isn’t that plan for any of us. Sleep in peace to homie. May his family find peace in all of this madness.”
22Gz, who is signed to Kodak Black’s Sniper Gang label, emphasised the sincerity of his message to Pop’s family amid some of the negativity from fans.
“Idk about y’all,” he added. “But I’m about growth and development. Not dissing black men who die from senseless violence. So please keep the negative comments to yourself please! #FreeKodak;”
Last October at Rolling Loud Festival, 22gz, Pop Smoke, Casanova, Sheff G and Don Q were removed from the lineup at the request of the New York City Police Department. In a letter to the organizers, the NYPD cited concerns over a “higher risk of violence” as the reason for their request.
The investigation into Pop Smoke’s murder is still ongoing. Surveillance footage of the incident reportedly suggests he may have been the victim of a targeted hit, instead of – as originally believed – a botched robbery.
The tapes are yet to be released to the public.
