The release of Pop Smoke’s critically celebrated posthumous debut Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon which saw a deluxe reissue on what would have been the artist’s 21st birthday earlier this month was complemented by the launches of several tribute capsules.
In a new interview with Women’s Wear Daily, manager Steven Victor spoke candidly on the emotions surrounding these posthumous collections. He also looked ahead to what he and his team are aiming to accomplish in Pop’s honor in the coming months and years.
Victor looked back on conversations he had with Pop Smoke about his own intentions on moving further into the realm of fashion design.
“I would take it in stride super early on and thought let’s focus on the music first and once you’re stable as an artist then let’s dabble,” he said. “He would always talk about fashion. I thought he was just saying it because it was cool for rappers to say. Then over the months I realized he did have his own sense of style.”
