Although he no longer wanted to camp for himself, the late rapper Pop Smoke from Brooklyn was able to secure a posthumous Grammy Award 2021 nomination for his summer single « Dior. Pop Smoke was killed during a house invasion in February of that year while driving the hit of his 2019 summer hit « Welcome To The Party » and preparing for the release of his debut album. The album « Shoot For The Stars », « Aim For The Moon », was released posthumously and included « Dior » as a bonus track, although the song had previously served as a single for Pop Smoke’s mixtape « Meet the Woo 2 » after it was originally on the predecessor of the band had appeared six months earlier.
The song strangely became an unofficial protest anthem, despite not addressing police brutality or racism, as protesters played the song during demonstrations in Seattle and New York City. It also appears on the soundtrack of the recently released NBA 2K21. The beat was used during the 2020 BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher.
After his death, Pop Smoke became an icon that the burgeoning New York drill scene began to rally around as the gruff 20-year-old’s final recorded verses became a hot commodity for those seeking clout for majors. Young Thug and Pusha T exchanged heated words about a song that both appeared after Pusha used his verse to further dissipate Drake, while Pop’s final verses appeared on projects like Nav, French Montana, and others.
