A second posthumous Pop Smoke album appears to be in the works. On Friday (June 4), the late emcee’s manager Steven Victor shared a list of upcoming releases on Twitter alongside his thoughts of each project thus far.
Per the tweet, Pop Smoke has another album on the way; Pusha T and Nigo are working on projects as well. All three albums, he added, were worthy of multiple fire emojis.
Pop’s managers have been teasing another LP since the release of the rapper’s debut, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, which went on to top music charts and break several records.
Just last month, Rico Beats hopped on Instagram to let fans know that a new record would be released in the near future. “I see and hear everything,” he penned his caption. “Kept it cool tho no worries. Pay back around the corner. Pop Smoke new album loading...” Prior to that, Victor confirmed to an inquiring fan that there will be more posthumous Pop Smoke albums. He also talked to 50 Cent about the forthcoming project. It’s unclear whether the Queens native — who rapped, gave insight and heavily helped with the promotion of Pop’s debut — will be involved the second time around.
“Steven [Victor] was originally Pop’s manager and the label person that he was signed to,” the “Power” star told Kris Kaylin during an interview last month. “He talked to me about the new record, and I’m not sure if I’ll participate with this, that record. I just wanted to make sure that his record did what it was supposed to. My interaction with Pop was like he was looking at me like I could tell him the right way to go, and that everything would work based on what I was saying.”
