A beautiful tribute.
No one could have missed it: the Migos’ Culture III album was released today, more than three years after the generous Culture II. Among other things, the album reintroduces two deceased rappers, including Juice WRLD and Pop Smoke. The latter is the subject of a new musical tribute.
Pop Smoke evoked by the Migos
Among the 19 tracks of Culture III, the track Antisocial will have particularly resonated with the fans of the ATL trio. Taking advantage of the posthumous presence of the late Juice WRLD, the track is an opportunity for Migos to give a nod to Pop Smoke, but also to some other stars who have disappeared in recent years: “I lost my dawg to fentanyl, and I wasn’t dissin’ Lil Peep Pop Smoke, rest in peace, wish I could put him under my wing”.

For the record, this track was previously leaked in 2019. At the time, the leaked version featured a guest appearance by Lil Skies, featuring Takeoff and Juice WRLD. Note that the same Smoke appears on the 18th track of Culture III, on the title Light It Up, again posthumously joining a bluffing list of guests, including Drake, Juice WRLD, Polo G, Cardi B or YoungBoy Never Broke Again.
