50 Cent teases new music with Pop Smoke and Roddy Ricch

Pop Smoke‘s estate may be releasing a new song featuring 50 Cent and Roddy Ricch. 

On Instagram, 50 teased an upcoming track, writing “New Pop Smoke 50 Cent and Roddy Rich soon!”

50 has yet to announce a title or release date, but either way, fans are excited, sharing dozens of fire emojis in the comments. 

As previously reported, the music and TV mogul shared that he wanted to executive-produce Pop’s posthumous LP, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon. He hoped to call on a few hip-hop heavyweights, including DrakeChris Brown, and Roddy Ricch, to which Ricch responded, “Say Less.”

Pop Smoke, born Bashar Barakah Jackson, died from a fatal gunshot wound to his torso during a home invasion in February. Last week, his family announced the non-profit Shoot for the Stars, a foundation he established before his passing, which is led by his mother, Ms. Jackson.

“The foundation is meant to inspire inner-city youth to do just what the name states: ‘Shoot for the stars and help urban youth everywhere turn their pain into champagne by making their dreams a reality,'” Ms. Jackson shared in a press release.

This new track follows Pop Smoke’s previous record, “Make it Rain,” and might be featured on his debut album, which arrives July 3.
