Mr. Jones – [Pop Smoke] ft. [Future]

It goes without saying that Pop Smoke was taken from this Earth way too soon, but if there’s one positive we can take away from this tragedy, it’s the fact that he made his time here count and has left behind tons of amazing music that will continue his legacy for decades to come and beyond. His first posthumous album Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon was a smash hit, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 and remaining on the charts for months to follow.

That’s why, when I saw that his team was gearing up to release a follow-up album entitled Faith, I couldn’t have been more excited if I tried. Obviously, there is so much to delve through in this album that I wanted to truly dive into it before I gave my opinion one way or another, but just know that I’m beyond excited about it and I was even more excited to find out that there is even a brand-new music video for the song “Mr. Jones” which also features Future, so I had to at least share that with you.

As it begins, Pop pulls up to a strip club in a city I couldn’t identify, rolling deep with his crew and bringing all the attention to himself as he walks in. As he enjoys himself, he’s decked out in his head-to-toe Dior outfit that probably costs more than my entire life savings, and he even picks up a mic to dance and perform for the club. After leaving, he hops in a sprinter van with his crew as women attempt to join them, and unfortunately for most of them, they had no luck. When Future comes in, he is walking down a luxurious hallway in a hotel with a handful of lovely ladies who then accompany him in many of the various scenes that follow as he wears his expensive designer outfits as well.

While this music video is definitely not exactly what I’m sure it would have been if Pop was still around, I think it’s always so great to see original footage of the late rapper, so I can’t help but appreciate what they did with this one. As far as the album goes, though, I am beyond excited to give it a very thorough listen beyond the little skimming I’ve done so far. With 20 songs that last just about an hour-long, I’m sure there is room for tons of hits on this one. Beyond this, with a list of guests like Kanye, Pusha T, 21 Savage, Rick Ross, Pharrell, Kid Cudi, and too many other star-studded names to even mention, I am so pumped to see which features made the most out of this opportunity and which ones get overshadowed by the late great rapper, because with his amount of talent, it’s bound to happen. Whether you’re listening to the entire album or just select songs, make sure you check out the brand-new music video for the album’s cut “Mr. Jones” as soon as you can.
