Virgil Abloh Releases His Design For The Cover Of Pop Smoke’s Posthumous Album

Social media was rocked when news broke that Pop Smoke had been gunned down inside of his mansion in Hollywood Hills, but fans rallied behind 50 Cent when he announced he would be finishing his album! Now that the album is getting ready to drop, the cover art has just been released, but some fans have concerns.

According to Pop’ manager, he always wanted to have an album cover designed by the one and only Virgil Abloh, which has come to fruition during this time. While Pop isn’t here to speak for himself, the fans have a lot to say about Virgil’s design.

Virgil took to Instagram with a message of his own about his relationship with Pop Smoke, and he explains the meaning behind the design for the cover.

“The last conversation I had with Pop Smoke was about what we were gonna do in the future. This albumcver was one of like 5 things were talked about,” he said. “He mentioned his story eellike the metaphor of a rose and thorns growing from concrete of his hood in Canarsie, Brooklyn. In your memory I just finished it yesterday, as evident of the whole idea, the t-shirt insinuates that its mandatory we put an end to this cycle of violence that plagues us.”

Virgil was previously under fire after he posted his $50 donation to a black lives matter initiative.
