POP SMOKE HAS NO MORE UNRELEASED MUSIC LEFT IN THE VAULT ACCORDING TO CLOSE FRIEND

Pop Smoke Has No More Unreleased Music Left In The Vault According To Close Friend

 

cohort Mike “Mike Dee” Durodola claimed the Brooklyn drill

superstar’s vault has little to no music left, thanks in part to his

lengthy posthumous album Faith.

 

“[In] my opinion, instead of dropping all 30 songs, I would have

waited … until now, until next year, you know,” he said. “That way

his name will stay alive, instead of just dropping it all at one time,

you know.”

When asked if he believes Pop Smoke has any unheard music left

in the stash, Dee replied, “I’m guessing this is what he had left in

the vault.”

Since his tragic death in February 2020, Pop Smoke’s team has

released a wealth of unreleased and repurposed material across

two posthumous albums.

 

His debut album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon arrived in

July 2020, just six months after the rapper’s death, and was

followed by a deluxe edition weeks later. In total, the album

contained 36 tracks.

 

Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon debuted at No. 1 on the

Billboard 200, making Pop Smoke the first rapper to debut

posthumously at the top of the chart with his debut studio album.

The project returned to the No. 1 spot in October 2020 and has

been certified double platinum by the Recording Industry

Association of America (RIAA).

Pop Smoke’s second posthumous album Faith followed in July

2021, featuring an additional 30 songs (deluxe edition tracks

included). Once again, the album topped the Billboard 200 and

wrote Pop Smoke into the history books, making him the first

artist ever to posthumously have their first two albums go No. 1.

 

The “Welcome to the Party” rapper also posthumously appeared

on Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon III, French Montana’s CB5 and

UK rapper Fredo’s Money Can’t Buy Happiness, as well as the

soundtracks to Eddie Huang’s Boogie and the 2021 Fast &

Furious film F9.

 

If Mike Dee’s claim checks out, it’s unlikely Pop Smoke fans will

get a third posthumous album of never-before-heard material.

 

Still, there’s evidence to suggest fans haven’t heard all the

contents lifted from Pop Smoke’s vault.

In February, Meek Mill previewed a yet-to-be-released

collaboration with the late Brooklyn rapper, while French

Montana claimed last October he’s sitting on nearly a project’s

worth of songs with Pop Smoke.

 

The Brooklyn rapper’s distinctly deep voice was also heard during

the August 5 livestream of Kanye West’s perpetually-

delayed Donda album, which is due out later this month. Pop

Smoke may be gone but this superstar has definitely made his

mark on this world. Rest in Peace Pop.
