Pop Smoke's posthumous album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, not only did well on the charts, it cleaned up at the Billboard Awards last week, which 50 Cent, who executive produced the album, celebrated.
The G-Unit boss has since spoken about possibly executive producing Pop's next project, but he stopped short of saying he'd actually do it.
"Steven was originally Pop's manager and the label person he was signed to," said 50. "He spoke to me about the new record. I'm not sure if I'll participate with that record. I just wanted to make sure that his record did what it was supposed to. My interaction with Pop was that he was looking at me like I could tell him the right way to go and everything would work based on what I was saying ... Outside of producing the record and having it perform well, I did all the promotion for that record to have it work. They would have put it out and you'd have to find it out of basic interest."
Would you like to see 50 have a hand in Pop's music from here on in?
