We were all truly envisioning the arrival of Pop Smoke’s after death collection on June 12 however the hold up should be somewhat more.
Victor Steven , the head of Pop’s label, has announced that his album will now be released on July 3rd. The push back comes in light of the recent protests in the U.S. following George Floyd’s death.
“Given recent events, we have decided to delay the release of his album out of respect for the movement,” Steven said on Instagram. A new song tagged ‘Make It Rain’ comes out Friday, June 12
