Wherever he is right now, American rapper Pop Smoke, who was murdered months ago, would be excited at the knowledge his legacy is stuttering. It is living brilliantly, inspiring ever older rappers to follow the Smoke way.
In case you missed it, earlier, we had reported Tweezy’s acknowledgment of Pop Smoke’s influence on his latest number. While the influence was apparent in his work and had not pleased some of the OG, it affirmed Pop Smoke’s gift as a rapper until his death aged 20.
The latest Mzansi muso to acknowledge Pop Smoke’s power as an artiste, and his influence, is Ambitiouz Entertainment star Kid Tini. In a recent Instagram post – really a freestyle titled “Woo Style” – Kid Tini celebrated the slain rapper, wishing his legacy lives on.
From the responses to the freestyle, it was clear Kid Tini’s fans were pleased with it, as well as the acknowledgement of Pop Smoke’s musical legacy, thus they peppered the post with the flame emoji.
Clearly Kid Tini is never kidding when it comes to dropping his bars and appreciating those whose works he admire. Or what do you think? You might want to join the conversation by dropping your thoughts in the comment section below.
