As Pop Smoke fans await the release of his album Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon next week, more details have emerged about the posthumous project. On Monday (June 22), 50 Cent announced that a collaboration between himself, Pop and Roddy Ricch will be released soon, although he didn’t specify whether or not it will land on the album.

“New Pop Smoke Ft [50 Cent] & [Roddy Ricch] soon!” 50 revealed.

Back in March, the rap veteran said that he would executive produce Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon and called on Roddy, Post Malone and others to appear as features on the project.

The album was originally scheduled to drop last Friday (June 12). However, Pop’s manager Steven Victor and the late rapper’s family decided to delay its release to July 3 out of respect for the current police reform movement.

“Music is the tool of revolution. We have been watching, along with the rest of the world, as long overdue change starts to take root. We have seen Pop’s music become the soundtrack of the moment, unifying the masses,” Victor announced on Instagram. “Given recent events, we have decided to delay the release of his album out of respect for the movement.”

The first single from the project — “Make It Rain” featuring Rowdy Rebel — emerged last week.

Along with Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon, Victor previously confirmed that a documentary about Pop is also underway, as well as his family’s Shoot For The Stars Foundation.

“The public show of support and grief, by everyone touched by Pop during his lifetime, has provided some semblance of comfort during these difficult times for his family, friends and colleagues,” he wrote in a joint statement with Pop’s family. “Throughout the next year we will be sharing new music, as we continue to work to build Pop’s legacy. In conjunction with his estate we will be making formal announcements on his foundation and music projects. We love him so much and miss him dearly.”
