Pop Smoke’s return to number one on the Billboard 200 causes 50 Cent to celebrate.
The love that late New York rapper, Pop Smoke has gotten since his unexpected passing has been massive. His post-humous album “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon” has also been a huge success since it dropped, lodging multiple weeks in the top 10. It has been supported by an EP and a Deluxe version.
The album also features contributions from various notable names including Roddy Ricch and 50 Cent who played a huge role in its creation. It continues to amass success as it claims the top spot on the Billboard 200 this week. The album had gone head to head with 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s “Savage Mode II” was expected to sell the same amount numbers in its second week on the charts.
However, Pop Smoke claimed victory selling 67,000 equivalent album units. 50 Cent took to Instagram to celebrate the news. The “21 Questions” rapper is credited for his contribution to the album’s creation. Funny enough, Fif’s 2003 hit song “Many Men” is sampled in the outro of 21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s joint album “Savage Mode II”. 50 contributed to the song “The Woo” which is on Smoke’s posthumous project alongside Roddy Ricch. Big congrats to them.
