The second posthumous album of Pop Smoke, ‘Faith’ has earned the no. 1 spot on Billboard charts, However, some controversies have arrived along with it.
With over 110,000 to 200,000 equivalent albums sold, Pop claimed the top spot on Billboard 200. Among them, 4,000 – 6,000 units are in the traditional album sale.
Last Year, Pop’s first posthumous album named ‘Shoot For The Stars, Aim For The Moon’ also set an example in the industry with over 251,000 units sold in the first week. It successfully dominated the top spot back then and the second one is following the same route.
The latest 20 track album ‘Faith’ is making Pop’s listeners, friends, and family speak out that most of the features in this album were not really the artists Pop might even want to work with.
Rowdy Rebel showed his strong disapproval first on this opinion which is quickly supported by Drake and other rappers. Rowdy specially mentioned a track from the album titled ‘Top Shotta’, featured by Pusha T, TRAVI, The Neptunes, and Beam.
The original track was featured by Eli Fross and considered a different production. Pop Smoke would never be wanted Eli to be removed and the tracks track has disappointed many.
Rowdy posted on Instagram “SMH I don’t understand why my boy not on this tracc.” While comparing he said, “Ayoo Eli Fross don’t trip bro yu know how theses industry n***as is straight succers.”
Pop’s childhood friend Mike Dee shared similar emotions and so did 808Melo. ItzBizkit supported it by sharing a screenshot of Rowdy’s post.

Drake is not really great with public opinions but he silently liked the post and the reason could be not only Eli’s removal but Steven Victor to show whom pop was signed to. He also handles Pusha T.
Steven was in Drakes’s good ventures and ‘The Story Of Adidon’ says it all.
The fans and followers can sense a denser backlash in the other track ‘Tell The Vision’ by Pusha T along with Kanye West. The verses quickly escalated to, “The crown is only for the king, they trying to place it on a clown.”
Stay tuned to know more details on ‘Faith’.
