A mother's love is unconditional, and rapper Pop Smoke knows this more than anyone after his mother reportedly put her own home up as collateral to help bond him out of jail.
According to news outlet Queens Eagle, prosecutors requested $250,000 bond for the rapper, arguing that he was a flight risk who used multiple aliases.
"Not to mention the alias he most commonly uses refers to leaving," Assistant U.S. Attorney Gillian Kassner said. Kassner also cited the rapper's alleged ties to a Brooklyn's 823 G Stone Crips and requested that he not have contact with known gang members or the owner of the Rolls Royce.
Last week, he was arrested at Kennedy International Airport for allegedly stealing a 2019 Rolls-Royce worth $375,000.
According to reports, Pop Smoke had borrowed it for a music video in California, according to an indictment and a law enforcement official. The Roll-Royce Wraith was borrowed for the video back in November, then he reportedly had the luxury vehicle transported to New York without the owner's permission.
It was reported missing by the driver and has since been returned to them after they found the car parked outside the home of Pop Smoke's mother in the Canarsie area of Brooklyn. Police say he changed the license plate and tinted the windows.
