HNHH TIDAL Wave: RIP Pop Smoke

HNHH TIDAL Wave: RIP Pop Smoke


Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke was representative of a movement that is picking up traction extraordinarily quickly in his hometown. The 20-year-old star was seen as one of the leaders of modern Brooklyn drill and, while he will be remembered for much more than just that, his music will live on forever, reminding us of the potential that Poppy had. He was killed early this morning after four masked men broke into the Hollywood Hills house he was renting, marking yet another instance where the hip-hop community is forced to mourn one of their young up-and-comers. Each week, our staff mulls over all of the new releases to create the TIDAL-exclusive TIDAL Wave playlist and, especially for this edition, we’re featuring a number of songs by the late Brooklyn star.

Dropping his new album Meet The Woo 2 just a few days ago, Pop Smoke debuted to much acclaim on the Billboard 200. We have included a handful of his project standouts, including “Sweetheart,” “Mannequin” and more to the playlist this week. Rest in peace, Pop Smoke.

Elsewhere in today’s update, we’ve got the remix of “Life Is Good” with Lil Baby and DaBaby, a bunch of Tame Impala offerings, YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s new single, that new Migos joint, and more.
