Pop Smoke's debut album will be released next month.
As announced Thursday, the posthumous album will arrive on streaming services on June 12. Though this marks Pop's debut album, it notably follows the 2019 and 2020 releases of the two Meet the Woo mixtapes. Previously, 50 Cent teased possible involvement with the posthumous album.
Earlier this month, Pop Smoke's family and Victor Victor label head Steven Victor confirmed that new music and additional projects would soon be announced. In the statement, they also thanked fans and artists for their continued support through what has been a very trying time.
"The public show of support and grief, by everyone touched by Pop during his lifetime, has provided some semblance of comfort during these difficult times for his family, friends, and colleagues," Victor and the family said. "Throughout the next year we will be sharing new music, as we continue to build Pop's legacy. In conjunction with his estate we will be making formal announcements on his foundation and music projects."
Among the non-album projects alluded to in the statement are a documentary Victor previously confirmed in an interview with Complex. Stating at the time that he was working "really, really hard" on the album, Victor added that he was "working on a documentary for him too."
In February, Pop Smoke died after being shot twice during a home invasion in the Hollywood Hills.
