Roddy Ricch and 50 Cent hold down the fort for their late collaborator Pop Smoke, who would’ve turned 21 today (July 20) in his posthumously released music video “The Woo.”
The two rappers illustrate the luxurious life Pop famously categorized with his phrase “Woo,” which appears in his previous mixtape titles Meet the Woo and Meet the Woo 2, while paying homage to him with archival footage playing on vintage TV screens. 50 Cent dances to Pop’s third verse, which not only interpolates his Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit from 2005 “Candy Shop” but also nods to his Hot 100 No. 2 song from 2005 with The Game titled “Hate It Or Love It.”
“You know da Vibes, Monday is Pops birthday so Video Monday,” the 45-year-old entertainment mogul wrote on Instagram in promotion of the clip, which is the sixth trending YouTube video on Monday.
He executive produced the late drill star’s posthumous album Shoot For The Stars Aim For The Moon, which shot straight to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for its major opening week (dated July 9). The deluxe version of the LP dropped Sunday (July 19), featuring 15 additional tracks that boast even more star-studded features with Jamie Foxx, Young Thug, Gunna, Burna Boy, Fivio Foreign and more.
