NYPD & The Feds Couldn't Get Pop Smoke To Snitch On The Crips

Pop Smoke was dealing with some serious pressure from the NYPD and the Feds when he was murdered earlier this year.

In December of 2019, Pop was hit with six state charges, including criminal possession of stolen property, for taking a Rolls Royce Wraith that he didn't own from LA to Brooklyn.  (Pop claims the car's owner lent it to him as part of a deal.)

After Pop was arrested, the NYPD tried to get him to provide information on Brooklyn’s 823 Crips.

When he wouldn't, the Feds got involved and charged him with interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, an unusual charge which appeared to be strictly to get him to snitch.

“They hoped the force of the federal indictment would persuade him to cooperate — meet and speak with them,” Pop's lawyer Peter Frankel said. "It’s not uncommon for the federal government to become involved in an investigation when they believe that doing so will help them in a way a state court prosecution may not be able to do."

According to Frankel, Pop stayed strong.

“Any conversation with Pop about cooperation was a very short one. It’s something he would never entertain doing,” Frankel recalled.
