The hip-hop world at large continues to mourn the tragic loss of Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke, who was murdered at a Hollywood Hills residence just weeks after releasing his sophomore album Meet The Woo 2. Now New York City icon 50 Cent is paying his respects, taking to Instagram late last night to announce that he wants to executive produce Pop Smoke’s next album.

“I’m on the move listening to Pop smoke, I decided I’m gonna executive produce and finish his album for him,” 50 Cent wrote in his Instagram caption. In a couple of follow-up posts, he reached out to rappers like Drake, Roddy Ricch and Chris Brown for potential features. There hasn’t been an official announcement about a posthumous follow-up to Meet The Woo 2, although Pop Smoke’s manager Steven Victor confirmed that he was open to a collaboration.

Earlier today, Pop Smoke’s family broke their respective silence to talk about the passing of the late rapper. Following Smoke’s tragic passing, his “Dior” single earned his first solo Billboard 100 entry. Travis Scott even teased an upcoming track while Lil Tjay honored his friend with “Forever Pop”.

Stay tuned for more updates regarding the posthumous 50 Cent executive produced Pop Smoke record and in more music news, watch JPEGMAFIA’s 15-minute documentary where he talks to Danny Brown about his creative process and speaks on Donald Trump’s re-election probability. He even covers Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby.”
