Pop Smoke’s Album Cover Art by Virgil Abloh Skewered, Will be Changed

Love ya work let’s get to it. Love ya work let’s get to it. he mentioned his story felt like the metaphor of a rose & thorns growing from concrete of his hood in Canarsie, Brooklyn.”

Hey Virgil we need new album art, they ain’t going for this bullshit. It’s unclear if Abloh will get another crack at it or if the cover art will be done by someone else, but ya gotta think … so a change is coming. In his defense, when Abloh posted the artwork he said he’d just finished it and explained … Among the most common complaints about the cover … Fif tweeted … it was widely ridiculed and roasted, and fans immediately demanded a do-over. Even 50 Cent — a mentor to the late hip-hop star — called out Abloh. Steven i told you this s**t was eww let’s get it right!”

That Steven is Pop’s manager, Steven Victor, who’s already made it clear that Abloh’s art will be redone before the album is released. 6/30/2020 8:04 AM PT

Pop Smoke’s fans have spoken — loudly and clearly — the cover art designed by Virgil Abloh for the rapper’s posthumous album is trash … “this album cover was one of like 5 things we talked about. Victor says Pop — who was on the rise when he was fatally shot in February in a home invasion — would listen to his fans and make a change … Pop’s highly anticipated album, “Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon” is set to release July 3, but when the cover art was revealed Monday … so that’s what they’re going to do. #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi pic.twitter.com/mE24CtErto— 50cent (@50cent) June 30, 2020
