Pop Smoke’s Posthumous Album Pushed Back to July 3

If you were hoping to hear Pop Smoke’s first posthumous album at the stroke of midnight you will have to wait a bit longer. The album is being pushed back to the Fourth of July weekend.

Steven Victor hit Instagram to announce the pushback. What will come instead of the full album is “Make It Rain.”

“Music is the tool of revolution,” Victor writes. “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.”
