Fans of Pop Smoke are furious with his label after hearing that a new posthumous album is in the works.
Pop Smoke’s supporters appear to be ready to lay his legacy to rest after his second posthumous album, Faith, received a negative response and was considered a failure. Now, Fans are reacting with skepticism since new music by the late Brooklyn rapper was hinted this week, with a release date reportedly scheduled for 2022. Many people are encouraging the musician’s management to hold off on releasing anything new.
Meet The Woo 1 and 2 were two great projects by up-and-coming New York talent. They looked to set the way for Pop’s debut studio album, Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon, which seemed to be the fitting send-off. Faith was released too soon, according to many of his fans, and the songs were not well welcomed.
Pop Smoke’s fans are upset now that new music is being teased for the year 2022, begging with the late 20-year-old rapper’s crew to take a pause before releasing another album, alleging that the tracks that are being released now “ain’t even Pop Smoke music.”
One fan on Twitter wrote:
“No bro, we do not need this. Let the man rest yall f*cked up his 2nd posthumous album there’s no hope for a 3rd being anything different… sh*t is ridiculous”
Another user also expressed his feeling about the posthumous albums in general, saying that the industry is “becoming a market of garbage in the name of artists who had higher standards when they were alive”

No matter how many posthumous Pop Smoke albums these labels drop, theyll never come close to Meet the Woo 1 & 2. Shoot for the stars was a good sendoff. Shouldve just end it there pic.twitter.com/8Kh9RzoYIS
