Late New York rapper Pop Smoke's new album is reportedly doing big numbers on the Apple Music singles chart. We're told the bling represents rising above adversity, as well as shooting for the stars, and aiming for the moon - the title of the album.

POP SMOKE now occupies the entire top 15 on the US Apple Music singles chart.

Dee also teased that his wish for Pop's album is to go platinum by the young drill rappers 21st birthday, which is July 20.

Pop's new tape is getting major hip-hop support.

On Friday, Pop's label hit the green light on putting out his posthumous release.

Meanwhile, Victor, who also serves as senior vice president of artists and repertoire at Universal Music Group, reveals it was 50 Cent who helped to pull him out of his grief by urging him to release the songs Pop had been working on for his debut album. It arrives almost five months after the rapper's death at age 20 in a Los Angeles home invasion.

The album is heavy on features with Quavos of the Migos featured on three tracks, Tyga, Lil Baby, DaBaby, Swae Lee, Rowdy Rebel, and 50 Cent as well among others.

Prior to the release of Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, designer Virgil Abloh found himself under scrutiny for releasing a distasteful cover art for Smoke's highly-anticipated project.
