The late Brooklyn rapper is also referenced in the song itself by Monata: “My proposition ain’t the competition / It’s the drought and the doubt when I saw the vision / Too much love, have your dreams turn to Pop Smoke / Killers look familiar, they don’t want money, they wanna kill you.”

Montana recently dropped “Double G,” a posthumous collaboration with Pop. He revealed to Beats 1’s Zane Lowe that he and the drill emcee had recorded nearly enough songs to make a full joint project, per Complex.

“A lot of people don’t realize how close me and Pop Smoke was,” he told Lowe. “We was friends outside the music and we had a lot of music together that we was planning on putting out and I’m just so sad we didn’t get a chance to do that.”

Coke Boys 5 is set to be released later this month. While you wait, watch the video for “Wave Blues” below:
