Pop Smoke‘s posthumous debut album gets an official release date for late spring 2020.
The Brooklyn rapper’s musical legacy continues to live on. Pop Smoke, born Bashar Barakah Jackson, the “Welcome To The Party” artist was shot and killed on February 19, 2020, in Los Angeles, California at the age of 20.
While no official title has been announced, fans of the Brooklyn drill musician can anticipate Pop Smoke’s debut this June. His manager uploaded an album cover with the printed date June 12, 2020, captioning the image “Pop Smoke Forever.”
“Throughout the next year we will be sharing new music, as we continue to work to build Pop’s legacy,” says Pop Smoke’s manager in a statement reported by Vulture.
50 Cent also announced plans to hopefully finish the album. He hoped to serve as executive producer and called on rappers such as DaBaby and Drake to offer their talents. It is not confirmed if 50 Cent worked on the official release.
