Now, Pop Smoke’s older brother Obasi Jackson is paying tribute to him via Instagram live with a spot-on impression of the late rapper’s flow.
“I really do a good impression,” he said to someone off-camera, “of Bashar,” he continues, referring to Pop Smoke by his real name. “Nah, I can like sound like him when he does his songs, like when he’s rapping,” he explains. “I mean, I don’t do it perfect but I could do it. Like when he was alive, when he was here I did it for him one time and he turned around like this,” he said, doing a shocked expression before physically warning him to slow down before he steals his job.
