Fans Trash Album Cover For Pop Smoke, Designed By Virgil Abloh
Album Cover Pop Smoke Virgil Abloh: The hounds are after Virgil Abloh again. I mean, if goof was a person! After months of 50 Cent and the team, teasing a Posthumous album for Pop Smoke, who was gunned down in a senseless act of violence, the album art was released and the fans were not loving it.
On Monday, the cover art created by Virgil Abloh was shared on social media and was met with criticism for being – lazy! To the fans, it seemed, not enough effort was put into creating the work, which of course, is disappointing.

you were always shootings for the stars and aiming for the moon. everything we talked about is happening, the only thing is you’re not here in the flesh to see it all come together. you wanted Virgil to design your album cover and lead creative.. Virgil designed the album cover and led creative.. we love you and miss you more and more each day ❤️
The fans responded to the post, and they were not in the least pleased. This forced Steven Victor to announce on Instagram, that the cover art would be changed ahead of the album release on Friday.
“As pop’s label & as his friends/family, it is our obligation to bring his vision to life he wanted virgil to lead creative, we fulfilled his wishes however, unfortunately, he’s not here to give his final approval his fans, are.”
Steven continued, “You know why you love pop your voices are loud and clear he loved his fans and listened to his fans pop and we at victor victor h e a r d you l o u d and clear – changes will be made see you July 3rd 2020.”
