Rear wheel 'popping' noise off road

I'm doing the UTBDR and today(the third day) I noticed that whenever my rear wheel goes over a bump at speed or when any major pressure is applied o the rear tire a loud POP happens.. It sounds like a tire being seated. The pressure is fine and the bike rides great besides this annoying sound. Anyone know what this might be or have experienced the same? Anything helps. Thanks

Mine does the same thing. Sounds like the gravel is being spit out by the tire. Anyone else have this. I think it is the tire.

I've never noticed it before this trip. I'm running a Heidenau in the back by the way

Any chance it could be the rear Ohlins shock? I see no oil leaking but the noise only happens when the rear tire hits something significant.
