Pop Smoke’s debut album finally arrived nearly five months after the 20-year-old rapper was fatally shot dead at his Los Angeles residence in February.
The posthumous album which was initially set to be released on 12th of June, was pushed back to July 3rd due to the ongoing Anti-Black racism and police brutality protests in the United States and other parts of the world.
The release of the much anticipated album serves as a followup to Meet the Woo (July 2019) and Meet the Woo 2 (February 2020). Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon holds weight and blows more fire than smoke. With features from Quavo, Lil Baby, DaBaby, Swae Lee, Future, 50 Cent, Roddy Ricch, and more.
In line with the album title, Pop Smoke (real name Bashar Jackson) before his demise had set up Shoot for the Stars foundation with a mission to help kids reach their goals despite living in difficult circumstances. Pop and his team were able to raise $100,000 toward the project.
A music video for Pop Smoke’s Got It on Me was also released with the album.
