Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke, born Bashar Barakah Jackson, was laid to rest in Brooklyn on Thursday with hundreds of family, friends and fans coming out to pay their respect.

During a massive funeral procession in Canarsie, a white horse-drawn carriage paraded Pop’s black casket with glass windows through the streets as fans lined up on the sidewalks, blasting the young rappers music as he took his final ride. At one point, fans popped champagne and danced alongside the hearse.

His mother waved to mourning spectators who chanted “Woo!” while a barrage of luxury vehicles owned by 50 Cent, including his Versace-wrapped Lamborghini, followed closely behind the carriage.

Last weekend, Pop Smoke’s family held a private funeral for his close loved ones. He was laid to rest in a Brooklyn cemetery following Thursday’s procession.

“The family of Bashar ‘Pop Smoke’ Jackson would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone for your support. Every prayer, call, and act of kindness is deeply appreciated as we mourn the loss of our son, brother, and friend.” The Jackson family said in a statement released last month.

Pop Smoke was murdered last month after a deadly home invasion at his Hollywood Hills home. No arrests have been made.
