50 Cent hopped on Instagram Live to talk about why he admired the late Pop Smoke and touched on executive producing his posthumous album.
Fif was getting a little irritated because Pop Smoke was looking at this phone nonstop, but realized that Pop was writing down everything that he was saying. “I said, ‘Oh sh*t,'” Fif recalled. “See it’s a difference between a n*gga copying you. That’s not copying. He never copied one f*cking thing from me. He just looked at it, he saw what was good in it. It influenced him, and he was doing his own thing with it. I fell in love with the n*gga at that point.”
He continued to praise Pop Smoke for paying attention to a veteran giving him some game. 50 Cent also touched on executive producing Pop’s posthumous album and what fans can expect from it.
