With each passing day, we are getting closer and closer to the release of Pop Smoke’s final project. The late New York rapper’s estate will release Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, executively produced by rapper 50 Cent this Friday. The 19 tracklist has now been revealed.
“He would take the records that he really liked, R&B records, rewrite the lyrics, and then use that as a template for how he’s actually singing it, but he would do it with Auto-Tune,” 50 revealed to The New York Times of Pop Smoke’s music making process.
Pop’s manager Steven Victor also revealed the cover art designed by Virgil Abloh, which was met with immediate backlash by fans who felt that the artwork lacked effort and did not do Pop much justice. The design was scrapped following the social media scrutiny.
“It is our obligation to bring his vision to life he wanted Virgil to lead creative, we fulfilled his wishes however, unfortunately, he’s not here to give his final approval his fans, are,” said Victor. “You know why you love pop your voices are loud and clear he loved his fans and listened to his fans pop and we at Victor Victor heard you loud and clear.”
This is the rapper’s first release since February’s EP Meet the Woo 2. Nearly two weeks later, Pop would be murdered in his Hollywood home in a targeted home invasion at age 20.
