As the police work hard to investigate the recent murder of rapper Pop Smoke, the internet was busy doing their own detective work, and it seems that some have been pointing their fingers at childhood friend Mike Dee, who was staying in LA with the rapper at the time of his death.

It is not known whether Dee was in the house at the time of the deadly home invasion, but he posted a message to Instagram, denying that he had anything to do with Pop Smoke's death.

"CANT NOTHING EXPRESS THE PAIN IM FEELING ....I JUST LOST MY F*CKING BROTHER, MY HEART MY DAWGZ💙," he wrote.

"YOU GUYS HAVE NO TYPE OF SENSE OR SYMPATHY ! YALL DONT KNO WHATS GOING ON YALL COME ON HERE PLAYING INVESTIGATOR AND BASHING ME ON THE INTERNET, I WOULD NEVER IN MY LIFE SET MY BROTHER UP, WE ATE TOGETHER , BROKE BREAD TOGETHER THIS REALLY MY MOTHER CHILD I DONT GOTTA EXPLAIN NOTHING TO NOBODY THAT DONT KNO ME BUT FOR THE ONES WHO KNOW ME KNOW WHEN YOU SAW ME YOU SAW POP 💯WE LIVE IN SUCH A F*CKED UP SOCIETY YALL GOTTA WAKE UP💡 JUST KNO I GOT YOU FOREVER BROTHER THE TRUTH WILL COME TO LIGHT UNTIL THEN SLEEP IN PEACE 😔😔😔..."

A video clip has emerged which appears to show inadvertently the address where the rapper was staying. Many think this is the reason the rapper was targeted.
