Pop Smoke won the Billboard Award for Top 200 Album, late rapper’s mother remembered Her ‘Young Warrior’ during the acceptance speech.
Audrey Jackson, Pop Smoke’s mother, addressed the stage at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday to collect her son’s Top Billboard 200 Album award in his honor. “thank you to the fans, for honoring the life and spirit of my son, so much that he continues to manifest as if he were still here in flesh,” she said. “He created music for the kid who has to sleep four in a room, the kid who has to figure out how to get to school each day so he can graduate and make his mom proud. He did this so that 14-year-olds would not have to kill to prove they are somebody.”
