On the newest episode of Taraji P. Henson’s Facebook series “Peace Of Mind,” the actress spoke to Pop Smoke’s brother Obasi Jackson about dealing with his death.

Jackson shared that his brother received death threats before he was shot and killed during a home invasion in Los Angeles on Feb. 19, 2020.

All of that stuff he went through, it was just — there was a time when he went through a situation that was also … People would put him down and count him out. There was a lot of threats on his life because of that. And people were trying to figure out where the threats were coming from. I didn’t think that anybody would do that and it’s just a lot that goes into it.

Considering the death threats, Obasi finds it difficult to understand why Pop Smoke did not have adequate security.

It’s mind-boggling to me that someone would let a superstar go out with no security. That still plays on my mind. That just don’t make no sense. So, I don’t wanna point fingers, that’s not who I am as a person, but the truth is what the truth is and that’s something that bothers me.

Elsewhere in the interview, Jackson also said spoke about when he first heard the news of Pop’s death. Initially he didn’t believe the news, due to the shock.

Me losing my own brother… I’m going through so many things. I won’t be able to hug my brother again, tell him I love him again, I won’t be able to see him…I won’t be able to show him my accomplishments.
