An unmistakable example of the influence he has on his fans is evident in his debut mixtape “Meet the Woo” which has no feature but emerged as a song deeply loved by his fans.
In 2018, while he accompanied his associates and colleague for studio activities, the Brooklyn artist got inspired by their productions and began to discreetly record his own songs. In addition, he happens to be in Brooklyn’s upcoming drill scene, and so was able to combine the sound technologies of London and Chicago drills with his raspy voice to produce an exciting song that has kept his fans immensely captivated.
Pop Smoke also raps in a manner that confers a bubbling combination of aggressiveness and style which makes his songs on violence and street crime sound like warnings. In fact, given that he happens to be a fan of prominent artists like Meek Mill and Jay-Z, he is gradually giving life to the caliber of rap relevant in New York today.
