the last conversation i had with @realpopsmoke was about what we 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

Now it's being switched, according to Pop Smoke's manager  Steven Victor.
