Last July, Pop Smoke‘s posthumous debut album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, was released with features from Quavo, Lil’ Baby, DaBaby, 50 Cent, Roddy Ricch and several others. Debuting at number one with 251,000 units sold in its first week of being released, Pop Smoke has since won two Billboard Music Awards and a GRAMMY nomination.
Though he did not live to see these accomplishments, Pop Smoke left behind a slew of music. Enough for his estate to release a sophomore effort, scheduled to drop July 16 via Victor Victor Worldwide and Republic Records. Though there is no word on features or who will be executive producing the project (after 50 Cent denied he would), Pop’s estate has released a trailer filled with archived footage of the Brooklyn rapper.
Check out the trailer below.
