Make no mistakes, Pop Smoke has been etched into music history as an artist that has left behind quite the musical impact and legacy since his death at the early age of 20. His fans have eaten up every release ever since then, with his debut album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon that came out at the end of 2020, landing at No .1 on the official Billboard charts, and even going platinum. Now a second posthumous album has officially been confirmed to be coming from the Brooklyn-born drill rapper.
Teases for the second record have been happening since the deluxe for the debut album was put out. Close friends and people in the rapper's team said Pop Smoke has quite a vast collection of unreleased tracks in the vault ready to be mixed and put out to his fans. So, finally, the second posthumous record has been confirmed. This confirmation came out earlier this month when the late rapper's manager Rico Beats, said that the new album is 95% done.
The announcement for the new album was accompanied by a fast-paced album trailer that was about 35 seconds only. It included the NYC rapper's voice dubbed in the clip and showing off his life from childhood to being interviewed in a radio show and performing his high-energy songs in front of a crowd. The album trailer then ends with Pop saying, "We gotta make history."
As of yet, the name of the record has not been released to fans, nor has a tracklist that reveals new collaboration features been released, but it's confirmed the album will contain 17 tracks. His previous album was executive produced by 50 Cent and even featured him alongside Dababy, Quavo, Roddy Ricch, etc. The second posthumous Pop Smoke project will be released on July 16th, 2021.
