Pop Smoke’s Posthumous Album ‘Shoot For the Moon, Aim For the Stars’ Released W/ New Cover Art
After being postponed, rapper Pop Smoke‘s posthumous album, “Shoot For the Stars, Aim For the Moon,” has finally been released! The highly anticipated project is being talked about all over social media, leaving the Brooklyn native trending on Twitter.
As previously reported, fans were outraged at what they called a lazy attempt from Louis Vuitton creative director, Virgil Abloh, at designing the cover of “Shoot For the Stars, Aim For the Moon.” The call to action became so great – with an online petition toting thousands of signatures – that Pop Smoke’s manager, Steven Victor, promised to have it changed before its release date. He did just that. The album cover changed from a clouded photo of the slain 20-year-old’s face to a simple black rose.
A few big names make appearances alongside the slain rapper, including the likes of Quavo, DaBaby, Future, Roddy Ricch, Lil Baby, and the album’s executive producer – 50 Cent. The album includes 19 tracks.
Meek Mill praised Pop Smoke’s artistry on Instagram:
“@realpopsmoke i felt your energy when you was here as a person and artist RIP lil bro…. light this sh*t upppp for all the young kings we lost!!! Out now!!!”
