The deceased rapper, Pop Smoke posthumous album “Shoot For the Stars Aim for the Moon” dropping this summer after several weeks of postponement over Black Lives Matters protests.
Pop Smoke’s team recently pushed back his album to July 3rd in wake of the recent protests in the U.S The album, which was originally due to release on June 12, is being executive produced by 50 Cent who was one of his biggest inspirations. This past Friday, the team released a new single from the slain rapper called ‘Make It Rain‘ featuring incarcerated New York rapper Rowdy Rebel.
Today, we have the official title and release date for the project “Shoot For the Stars, Aim for the Moon”. Some merch has also been made available on his official store where fans can purchase the album. However, his single ‘Dior’, taken from last year’s Meet The Woo project, has now entered top 3 of Urban radio at number 3. We are expecting the track to be included on the Pop Smoke posthumous album which is currently most expected summer project.
