G-Unit head honcho 50 Cent revealed that he will take responsibility for finishing Pop Smoke’s last album on Sunday (March 1). The 20-year-old Brooklyn rapper was shot and killed during a home invasion in the Hollywood Hills on February 19. He was transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he died a few hours later.
50 said that Pop Smoke’s posthumous project would arrive in May via an Instagram post.
“set for release in May,” he wrote in the caption. “oh yeah @postmalone i’m gonna hit ya phone, i need you on this.”
A few hours later, 50 Cent confessed Pop Smoke was one of the only new rappers he liked.
“i’m looking at everything through a different lens,” he captioned a photo of himself. “everybody i call ain’t coming but i’m doing what i have to do to make it hot. i don’t like a lot of you weak ass n!ggas but i likes pop smoke.”
Snoop Dogg wrote in the comment section, “I’m waiting on the call cuz,” an indication Post Malone and Snoop are two of the possible guest features who might contribute to the album. 50 also tries to convince Roddy Ricch and Chris Brown to be a part of the project.
