The second posthumous album for the late (and gone far too soon) New York rapper Pop Smoke dropped this morning. It’s titled Faith, and it’s 20 track long with almost every track featuring a major artist. Among the star-studded lineup of guest verses were superstars like Pharrell, Dua Lipa, Future, Kanye West, and more. The track we were most eager to hear, however, was the track “8-Ball,” which featured Kid Cudi.
Kid Cudi’s most recent album, Man on the Moon III, featured Pop Smoke on the track “Show Out,” which was definitely a standout (and perhaps the heaviest track on the project). Today we get the second collaboration between these two artists, and it’s sounding much different than the first.
“8-Ball” features a much more relaxed direction from Pop and Cudi. The production here mainly features instrumentation, with less emphasis on being a banger and more on painting a picture with downtempo melodies and singing from both.
