New Album Cover On The Way For Pop Smoke After Virgil Abloh Designs Awful Artwork



Virgil Abloh has a lot of explaining to do. The Louis Vuitton creative director was tapped to create the artwork for late rapper Pop Smoke’s album “Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon,” but the finished product left a lot to be desired.

Abloh posted the cover on his Instagram saying:

“the last conversation I had with @popsmoke was about what we were gonna to do in the future. this album cover was one of like 5 things we talked about. he mentioned his story felt like the metaphor of a rose & thorns growing from concrete of of his hood in Canarsie, Brooklyn. In your memory i just finished it yesterday. as evident of the whole idea, the t-shirt insinuates it’s mandatory we put an and to this cycle of violence that plagues us, we need to shoot for the moon & aim for the stars. as heavy as it is we are celebrating your life the whole way thru. ⁣⁣rest in piece young one.⁣ ⁣-signed Louis Vee, Louis Vee.”

The post has since been deleted.

Fans were instantly in an uproar over the lackluster artwork…

And one fan even created a petition to have the artwork changed. On the page, it states, “Virgil deadass was wild lazy with Pop Smokes Album cover and he needs to fix it.”

Luckily, it looks like it will be. Label head Steve Victor took to Twitter to promise changes would come.

Victor then expounded on his tweets, with a post on Instagram.

Keeping it 2 virgils, whatever we see on July 3rd when Pop Smoke’s album is released MUST be better than the original version.
