Summer 2021 will see the release of the second posthumous album from N.Y.C. drill rapper Pop Smoke. The as-yet-untitled 17-track project, announced on Wednesday with a trailer streaming below, will be released on July 16.

Pop Smoke’s debut album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon was released in July 2020, months after the rapper was shot and killed in Los Angeles at age 20. A deluxe edition of the album was released a few weeks later. Pop would appear in Eddie Huang’s basketball drama BOOGIE and contributed the new songs “AP”, “Fashion” featuring Polo G and “No Cap (Remix)” featuring M24 to the film’s soundtrack. Last week, the soundtrack for the The Fast & The Furious 9 was released, a project containing the song “Lane Switcha” from Pop Smoke, Skepta, A$AP Rocky, Juicy J, and Project Pat.
