Since Pop Smoke died in 2020, his estate has put out a significant amount of music, including two albums and several features. According to the late rapper's manager Rico Beats, however, Pop's team doesn't have any unreleased music remaining.

He added, “What else ya want Pop died 3 years ago how much more music ya think he did in one year,” before continuing in another text, “y'all gotta be real.”
When the fan insisted by asking about previously previewed music including a collab between Pop and Gwaupo and another with Mike Dee, Rico responded, “all the records they used chip so many ways his vocals.” He then added, “if Pop was a live he would not approved 99% of the stuff they put out.”
