50 Cent couldn’t be prouder.
Pop Smoke’s posthumous album, “Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon,” has officially hit # 1 on the Billboard 200.
According to a Chart Data tweet, the project sold approximately 251,000 equivalent units in total in its first week, the sixth-largest debut in 2020 and the biggest posthumous opening since Michael Jackson’s This Is It in 2009.
“Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon” was released on July 3, and featured collaborations from several notable artists, including Quavo, Lil Baby, Future, and 50. The 16-track EP came approximately five months after Pop was killed in a house in the Hollywood Hills.
Pop’s murder is currently unsolved, but there has been some movement in his murder case. On Thursday (July 9), the Los Angeles Police Department detained five people, including two minors, after carrying out multiple search warrants.
A day later, the police identified the suspects as Corey Walker, 19, Jaquan Murphy, 19, and Keandre D. Rodgers, 18. The other two suspects, aged 15 and 17, had their names withheld due to their age.
