AceShowbiz – 50 Cent is going to finish what Pop Smoke had started before his sudden and tragic passing. The former G-Unit member has publicly announced that he’s going to executive produce the slain rapper’s full-length album.
The 44-year-old rapper/actor made the announcement on his Instagram page on Sunday, March 1. Sharing pictures of him sitting on the airstar of a plane and inside the private jet, he wrote in the caption, “i’m on the move listening to Pop smoke, i decided i’m gonna executive produce and finish his album for him.”
The “Power” star and co-creator has also reached out to Grammy-winning artist Roddy Ricch to enlist the latter’s help to complete Pop’s album. “Tell @roddyricch i’m looking for him, i need him on Pop album,” he wrote in another post.
50 Cent has since received a lot of support for his plan to honor Pop, with Steven Victor, CEO of Victor Victor Worldwide where Pop was signed, among one of them. The music executive left a heart emoji and “100” in the comment section.
“You are the best for doing this,” one of Fiddy’s followers responded to the announcement. Another appreciated his kind intention, “Your such a G bro much respect for giving back.” Someone else also praised him, “That’s what big brothers do finish what was started! NYC LOVE.”
Pop died after being gunned down by masked men in his Los Angeles home on Wednesday, February 19 in what was initially suspected as a home robbery. His family, however, has launched a private investigation amid speculation that his death might have been a targeted hit.
50 Cent was among the first who paid tribute to the rising star, posting on Twitter, “R.I.P to my man Pop Smoke, No sympathy for winners. God bless him.” He also wrote on Instagram, “No such thing as success with out jealousy, treachery comes from those who are close. R.i.P.”
