Pop Smoke’s posthumous music may be in short supply.
This is because there is no more unreleased music in the vault, according to Rico Beats, the late rapper’s manager and producer.
Rico Beats made the revelation after a fan messaged him and asked if there were “plans for Pop’s remaining music.”
“Who said he had music left,” Rico Beats responded.
After the fan expressed his disappointment, he added, “What else ya want pop died 3 years ago how much more music ya think he did in one year.”
He also claimed that Pop would not have approved of most of the posthumous music. “If pop was a live he would not have approved 99 percent of the stuff they put out.”
Pop tragically perished in the Hollywood Hills in February 2020 during a home invasion robbery. Since his passing, his estate has put out two top-charting posthumous albums, including 2020’s ‘Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon’, which produced platinum-certified singles like “For the Night” and “Dior.”
A second posthumous set, Faith, arrived a year later featuring collaborations with Chris Brown, Dua Lipa, Kanye West, and Pharrell.
Rappers that have experienced greater commercial success after passing away, like Juice WRLD and XXXTentacion, have found rising popularity and financial success with posthumous recordings. The subject is still divisive among artists. After revealing that his will forbids the distribution of his unreleased music after his passing, Tyler, the Creator recently made the news. Additionally, Anderson.Paak got a tattoo prohibiting the public release of posthumous music.
