The late rapper’s manager/producer Rico Beats revealed that there won’t be more Pop Smoke albums because there’s no unreleased music left in the vault.
He made the revelation after a fan messaged him and asked if there were “plans for Pop’s remaining music.”
“Who said he had music left,” Rico Beats responded.
After the fan expressed his disappointment, he added, “What else ya want pop died 3 years ago how much more music ya think he did in one year.”

He said that Pop, if he were alive today, would have disapproved of much of the music produced after death. “If Pop were alive today, he’d not approve 99 percent of what they released.”
Pop tragically died in Hollywood Hills during a robbery. In the years since Pop’s death, the estate of his deceased has released two albums that have topped the charts, including 2020 Shoot for the Stars Aim For the Moon. This album produced hits like “For the Night“, “Dior” and many more.
A second collection, Faith arrived one year after the first. It featured collaborations with Chris Brown and Dua Lipa. Kanye west and Pharrell.
Juice WRLD and XXXTentacion have both achieved greater commercial success following their deaths.
Artists are still divided on the issue. Tyler the Creator was in the news recently after said his will would prevent his music unreleased from ever being released. Anderson.Paak has also got a tattoo that prohibits the release posthumous songs.
