Pop Smoke‘s fans have spoken — loudly and clearly — the cover art designed by Virgil Abloh for the rapper’s posthumous album is trash … so a change is coming.
Pop’s highly anticipated album, “Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon” is set to release July 3, but when the cover art was revealed Monday … it was widely ridiculed and roasted, and fans immediately demanded a do-over.
Among the most common complaints about the cover … the lazy Photoshop job, along with using a photo of Smoke that’s the first one that comes up on Google images.
In his defense, when Abloh posted the artwork he said he’d just finished it and explained … “this album cover was one of like 5 things we talked about. he mentioned his story felt like the metaphor of a rose & thorns growing from concrete of his hood in Canarsie, Brooklyn.”
