NEW YORK –
50 Cent promises that Pop Smoke’s posthumous album will get him nominated for awards.
After Pop Smoke was murdered in Los Angeles, 50 Cent stepped up and said that he will finish Smoke’ album. I was immediately intrigued simply because 50 Cent is a force of music. He’s also well versed in Hip Hop so his co-sign of Pop Smoke is heavy. I’ve liked the feel and genre-twisting sound of Pop Smoke’s music thus far.
I won’t pretend like I know about his music but I’m willing to learn.
50 shared his confidence in Pop Smoke’s music on Instagram. While sharing a video of Pop Smoke’s funeral processional 50 Cent captioned, “R.I.P Pop Smoke 🕊. Told his mom he wanted to take her to a award show. So I’m gonna make sure his album gets her there.”
Star studded album.
When “Sir Cent” (50 Cent) announced that he would be helping with the album, he called on other artists to pitch in. So far, only Roddy Ricch has given a soft confirmation but he’s reached out to Drake, Chris Brown, Post Malone, and others. Not to say that award worthy music isn’t possible without the features, but adding those heavyweights certainly helps.
