Rapper Pop Smoke's best friend Mike Dee, has spoken out to defend himself after fans claimed he "set up" the 20-year-old rappers death.
Just hours before Pop Smoke was fatally shot in his home, Mike Dee uploaded a photo on Instagram holding stacks of cash in the driveway of the home where Pop was shot.

“We ate together, broke bread together this really my mother child, I don't gotta explain nothing to nobody that dont know me but for the ones who know me know when you saw me you saw pop” he continued.
