Pop Smoke’s posthumous album was set to be released Friday, June 12, however, the album got pushed back.
The late rapper’s manager, Steven Victor took to Instagram to make the announcement. In the caption, he wrote, that they are delaying the album in light of the Black Lives Matter movement. “Music is the tool of revolution. We have been watching, along with the rest of the world, as long overdue change starts to take root. We have seen Pop’s music become the soundtrack of the moment, unifying the masses. Given recent events, we have decided to delay the release of his album out of respect for the movement. ”
Luckily for fans, a new Pop single titled Make It Rain featuring Rowdy Rebel is out now, ahead of the posthumous album.
