The funeral procession for Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke drew a massive crowd in Brooklyn on Thursday. 
The rapper was killed last month during a home invasion in Los Angeles, California. The 20-year-old's real name was Bashar Jackson.
He was gunned down at his rented Hollywood Hills home back in February. Police believe it was a home invasion robbery. The young man was on the rise in the rap industry with hits like "Welcome to the Party" and "Dior."

His casket was placed in a glass box with a horse-drawn carriage. People lined the streets of Canarsie to pay their final respects to an artist who they say brought attention to the Brooklyn neighborhood. 
Pop Smoke is expected to be buried on Friday in a private ceremony. Some in the community say they will hold more events to honor him.
