Pop Smoke fans won’t only be receiving an album from the late rapper, but also a documentary that is expected to focus on his life.
According to Complex Magazine, in the latest interview with Steven Victor with the head of A&R at DefJam and founder of Victor Victor label. He said that he wants to release the documentary on Pop Smoke and make the Victor Victor label reach the level of the Interscope label.
“I’m working on a documentary for him, too,” Victor told Complex. “And his foundation. I’m just really focused on making this label like the next Jimmy Irvine and Interscope.”
It was also mentioned that before the death of Pop Smoke, the late rapper wanted to create a documentary based on himself. It would express how he was targeted by the police and where he grew up in Brooklyn to show viewers how they felt toward him and his career.
“I’m gonna put out a movie or a documentary,” Pop Smoke said in an interview with Complex. “I’m gonna make that shit about me. Walk ’em through where I used to live, where I used to be at, and why they look at me the way they look. I’m gonna show you why they don’t like that—what they don’t like. Let’s see if you have the same feedback that they have. Let’s see if you would want me to be banned and want me to not perform. I doubt you will. All this good music being recorded, and you want to put it on hold? You don’t want people to hear it?”
Recently, 50 Cent announced that he would help executive produce and finish the album that Pop Smoke was working on before he passed. 50 Cent also mentioned that he wanted rappers like Roddy Rich, Drake, Post Malone and several more. A date on the posthumous documentary and album has yet to be confirmed along with features for the tracklist.
