Shoot for the Stars (Deluxe) Released
Pop Smoke was tragically murdered in a home invasion earlier this year in February. The up and coming Brooklyn rapper was only 20 years old at the time and already made a big name for himself with hit tracks such as “Welcome to the Party”.
Following the rapper’s passing, there was an initial release of the album Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon on July 3rd. This included 19 tracks with a number of big names featured on the album including Future, Quavo, and 50 Cent among others.
What to Expect from Pop Smoke’s New Album
The new edition of Shoot for the Stars includes 15 new songs. Some rappers included on the deluxe version of the album are Young Thug, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, and Jamie Foxx just to name a few.
