Fans of the rapper know that Pop Smoke is supposed to mean, "to leave". The hip-hop entertainer has rallied support for the fellow Brooklyn native following a headline-generating federal bust.

Before you go: social media has already broken out.

The "Welcome to the Celebration" star, actual title Bashar Barakah Jackson, was taken into custody in his native Brooklyn on Friday, January 17, 2020 upon arrival at John F. Kennedy Airport, the place he had simply landed following a visit to Paris Trend Week in France.

Ruiz had won the match in Madison Square, New York, while Joshua reclaimed the titles in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia in December 2019. Joshua presented the belts to President Buhari at a meeting he had with a group of the Nigerian Community in the United Kingdom.

This past Friday, the rapper, Pop Smoke, stood before a federal judge after being charged with interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle. While the photo has since been eliminated from Pop Smoke's Instagram, sources confirmed that the alleged photo, see below, is still on Pop Smoke's official Facebook page. A month ago, the investigators would have found the auto until the house of the parents of Jackson in the Canarsie district of Brooklyn, and discovered that the license plate of the Rolls had been changed and that the windows had been tinted.

The owner claims that not only did Pop Smoke not return the auto the following day, but when he began tracking the vehicle using Global Positioning System, he allegedly found that the rapper was in Arizona. In exchange for giving the owner the VIP treatment at a future show, he agreed to let him use the vehicle in an upcoming music video. After the video ended, the tickets did not return and the auto was not returned either. The music video has a lot fancy whips, but no Rolls.
