Fans of the rapper know that Pop Smoke is supposed to mean, "to leave".

According to TMZ, the Brooklyn rapper was arrested Friday morning (January 17) on a federal charge of interstate transport of a stolen vehicle after he was caught allegedly transporting a stolen 2019 Rolls-Royce Wraith from California. In 2019, Nicki Minaj and Skepta remixed the rapper's breakout song "Welcome to the Party". After the video ended, the tickets did not return and the auto was not returned either.

And just recently, the NY artist was featured on Travis Scott's new Cactus Jack compilation project Jackboys, highlighting the final song "Gatti".
