The closing track to Pop Smoke’s second posthumous album, “Outro,” has dropped.
The 30-second track captures nuggets of wisdom from the late rapper.“That’s why we try to tell the young n****s like, stay focused, you understand? You know what I’m saying, keep you mind straight on the prize. Don’t let nothing get in between,” he encourages listeners on the track. “Focus up. You’ve got to be fully focused. You can’t let shit get in between you and your goal. You tell them n****s ‘Shoot for the stars, aim for the moon.’”
That last line is a reference to Pop’s first posthumous album, 2020’s Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon. The upcoming album will simply be titled Pop Smoke. The posthumous record was teased in a trailer last week, and is set to feature 17 tracks when it drops on July 16.
Pop Smoke was shot dead in a home invasion in February 2020. Since his untimely passing, the late rapper has had verses appear on albums by Migos, Polo G and more. Pop has also appeared on the Fast and Furious 9 and Boogie soundtracks, even posthumously making his acting debut inthe latter film.
