Pop Smoke's posthumous album has finally arrived, and it has a string of notable features including 50 Cent, Roddy Ricch, DaBaby, Quavo, Lil Baby, and much more.

The road to receiving this Pop Smoke album has been a rocky one. When the world lost the young rapper unexpectedly back in February, fans were shocked. Pop Smoke was an artist who was poised to have a long-standing career ahead of him as he sought out mentors in the game, but tragically his life was cut short after he was callously murdered during a home invasion. Later, 50 Cent shared that he would have a hand in crafting the album, which was later to be revealed with the title Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon.

After a bit of controversy surrounding the Virgil Abloh cover art, it seems that Pop Smoke's team was able to come together and get things squared away just in time for Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon's Friday (July 3) release. Features on the record include looks from Quavo, Lil Baby, DaBaby, 50 Cent, Roddy Ricch, Future, Swae Lee, Rowdy Rebel, Tyga, Karol G, and King Combs. Give Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon a few spins and let us know if they did well by Pop Smoke's memory with this one.
