Last year, Victor Victor and The Estate released the first posthumous titled Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, which had 50 Cent as its executive producer.
Both projects came after his 2020 murder.
The then 20-year-old rapper was killed by burglars that broke into a Hollywood Hills rental two weeks after celebrating the successful release of his second mixtape, Meet the Woo 2.
As reported by AllHipHop.com, Detective Carlos Camacho from the Los Angeles Police Department shared that they believe that Pop Smoke was killed by a minor, 15-year-old, and three others.
It is believed that the teens and one adult involved in the killing of Brooklyn rapper, whose real name is Bashar Jackson, saw his address on a social media post, broke into the house through the back balcony window, shot him, kicked him, and stole his diamond-encrusted Rolex, and sold it for only $2,000.
The adult, Corey Walker (who is now 20), will not face the death penalty for the fatal home invasion.
Instead, if convicted, he may get a maximum of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
In honor of Pop Smoke’s memory, sure fans are encouraged to download the music, but should also check for his foundation, Shoot for the Stars.
