A new title for Pop Smoke‘s second posthumous album has been announced.
The late rapper, real name Bashar Barakah Jackson, was shot and killed during a home invasion in Los Angeles in February 2020. He was 20 years old.
The forthcoming posthumous Pop Smoke release will follow on from July 2020’s ‘Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon’, and its official title has now been shared after it was previously thought to be self-titled.
‘Faith’ is set for release on Friday (July 16), Pop Smoke’s manager Steven Victor confirmed in a tweet last night (July 11).
