The first posthumous album by Pop SmokeShoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon” is finally here and available on all streaming platforms.

Pop Smoke (real name Bashar Barakah Jackson) was killed at his home during a home robbery on February 19, 2020, at the age of 20. Still, the case is unsolved and there are many questions around Smoke’s tragic death.

Crowned as the new king of New York, the “Christopher Walking” rapper gifted the hip-hop fans with his unique style and great delivery. Just a 20-year-old, Pop Smoke established himself as one of the outstanding names in New York.

The “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon” album was expected to drop in June, but due to respect for the mass protests for social justice around the US, ignited by the killing of George Floyd, the project was pushed back until today.

Smoke’s estate also provided a new video for the track “Got It On Me” which you can see above.

Executively produced by 50 Cent, Pop Smoke’s posthumous album got 19 tracks and enlists features of 50, Roddy Ricch, Future, Quavo, Lil baby, DaBaby, and more.

The album’s first cover artwork caused some backlash coming from Smoke’s fans towards the designer Virgil Abloh, who created the image.

 

After such disapproval, Steven Victor (manager of Pop Smoke) announced the artwork will be changed “POP WOULD LISTEN TO HIS FANS!
