Backlash is still coming in over the cover for Pop Smoke’s album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon.
It was designed by Off-White CEO Virgil Abloh and Pop’s fans hated it. Many said that it looked like Abloh put very little effort into the cover and just used the first image he found on Google.
Steven Victor, founder of Victor Victor Worldwide, Pop’s label, said the cover would be changed. He already removed it from his social media pages.
50 Cent is involved with the album and he’s featured on a track. So it’s no surprise that he weighed in on the controversy. Fif was promoting the project on his Instagram page, and someone complained about the cover in the comments section.
Why do you think Abloh would create such a poor looking cover?
