Rico Beats, the manager of the late Pop Smoke, has confirmed that another posthumous Pop Smoke album is set for release.
As a pioneering force within the Brooklyn Drill movement, Pop Smoke looked set for superstardom when his album Meet The Woo 2 gathered up some mainstream attention and brought the niche genre to the masses. Then tragically the star was murdered in February of 2020 when he was only 20-years-old.
Since his passing, Smoke’s legacy has been emboldened by the posthumous project headed by 50 Cent entitled Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon. The success of the record brought the rapper to the attention of an even bigger audience.
Following this, it appears there was still plenty left in the studio tank to release another record of unreleased material. As his manager, Rico Beats took to Instagram to state: “I see and hear everything. Kept it cool tho, no worries pay back around the corner. Pop Smoke new album loading.”
As of yet not, a great deal of further information has been made available, but more announcements are expected in the coming weeks following this unambiguous hint of the imminent release.
Owing to the success of Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon, which became the longest-running number one on the R&B/Hip-Hop Album charts since M.C. Hammer’s Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt Em in 1990, management will hope to get the record as soon as possible.
