One can probably say Pop Smoke was well on his way to becoming an international superstar with his unique sound and undeniable energy and talent before he was suddenly killed as his album has now hit double platinum.
The rapper was killed earlier this year in his rented house in California but his legacy still lives on as his ‘Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon’ album has now hit double platinum.
The album now has now sold over 2 million total units in the US and is now among the Top 3 album of the year.
His single ‘Dior’ was nominated for a Grammy this year although this latest project was snubbed from the Best Rap Album category.
As the album approaches its one-year anniversary, it will be interesting to see if it can continue to carry the momentum.
