Pop Smoke’s legacy lives on.
Another posthumous album from the late Brooklyn rapper is in the works. One of his managers, Rico Beats, posted a photo to Instagram over the weekend and in his caption, he revealed plans for a new project.
“I see and hear everything kept it cool tho no worries pay back around the corner Popsmoke new album loading….” wrote Rico Beats.
Pop Smoke’s posthumous debut Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon was released last July. The album, which was co-executive produced by 50 Cent, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and became the longest-running No. 1 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart since M.C. Hammer’s Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt Em in 1990.
The album spawned a trio of platinum tracks (“Hello,” “Got It On Me,” and “Something Special”), three 2x platinum songs (“Mood Swings,” “The Woo,” and “What You Know About Love”), one 3x platinum (“Dior”), and the 4x platinum “For the Night.”
Pop, who was shot and killed in February 2020, continues to earn accolades after his death. He was recently nominated for 10 Billboard Music Awards including Top Billboard 200 Album, Top Artist, and Top New Artist.
