Pop Smoke’s “FAITH” album cover unveiled


Ahead of its release date, the cover for Pop Smoke’s posthumous second album was unveiled.

Earlier today (July 12), Steven Victor, who worked as a Pop manager before the rapper’s tragic death, shared an Instagram post that includes an image of the album cover for FAITH, the new Pop Smoke album which will be released this Friday. It also included a trailer for the LP.

The cover of Pop’s new album features a close-up of her face and a charcoal black background. In the picture, you can very well see the tattoo “Faith” above her left eye.

The album trailer features archival footage of Pop in his Element, whether performing, playing with his friends, or being interviewed by Hot 97. It also includes a clip from a new song. It’s another glimpse into the power of the stars that has helped define a career that has been far too short.

At the time of his death, Pop Smoke’s Meet the Woo 2 mixtape had just been released. With a distinctively gruff voice, a knack for making firecrackers, and a level of charisma that helps define rap icons, his rise to superstar status seemed imminent. Tragically, he was gunned down in California’s Hollywood Hills neighborhood on February 19, 2020 after four intruders broke into a house he was renting.

This July, Aim for the stars, aim for the moon, a posthumous debut album featuring Lil Baby, DaBaby, Roddy Ricch, Future and more, has been released. The album was produced by 50 Cent and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart after its first week of release. Now the hope is that his new album will resonate with fans as well. Check out the trailer and album cover for FAITH below.
