As the world anticipates Pop Smoke’s upcoming album ‘Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon‘ the rollout has begun. Smoke’s manager Steven Victor revealed the album cover via Instagram and also added that it was Big Woo’s request to have designer Virgil Abloh create it before his passing.
Victor and the rest of the team fulfilled Pop’s request and had Virgil create the album cover. Now, this is the part where it gets really interesting.
Pop Smoke’s fans immediately expressed their disapproval for the album cover and labeled it generic.
