A new posthumous Pop Smoke single, “AP,” has been released.
The late rapper is in fine form on the track, which was produced by Pop’s close collaborators 808Melo and Rico Beats and boasts the booming bass and drill synths that Pop flowed best over when he was alive.
“AP” will appear on the soundtrack of the film Boogie, Eddie Huang’s directorial debut that will also star Pop in his first and only film role. A trailer, released in January, showed Pop, as the antagonist Monk, face off against main character Alfred “Boogie” Chin (played by Taylor Takahashi) on the basketball court.
“AP” is the latest posthumous Pop Smoke track to be released this year, and comes nearly a year after Pop’s fatal shooting in the Hollywood Hills. Last July, the rapper’s team gave his debut album Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon a posthumous release. Its deluxe edition, also released in July, stands at a total of 34 tracks.
