That’s what a good executive producer would do.
The first cover version for Pop Smoke‘s album “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon” was not well received by fans who deemed it “disrespectful”. For this reason, 50 Cent has decided to go to the trouble of choosing (with the help of fans) a new cover for the posthumous album.
Last night, 50 Cent posted several cover options for “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon” to his Instagram account.
Due to the controversy that generated the first cover, Virgil Abloh, the person in charge of designing it used his Twitter account to explain to fans what he wanted to convey with that cover.
“This album cover was one of like 5 things we talked about. he mentioned his story felt like the metaphor of a rose and thorns growing from concrete of of his hood in Canarsie, Brooklyn. in your memory I just finished it yesterday.
“As evident of the whole idea, the t-shirt insinuates it’s mandatory we put an and to this cycle of violence that plagues us, we need to shoot for the moon & aim for the stars. as heavy is it is we are celebrating your life the whole way thru. rest in peace young one.”
The late Brooklyn rapper’s posthumous album is expected to arrive on Friday (July 3). Take a look at some of the cover options below.
