    Unlike the majority of [posthumous releases], Faith speaks to Pop Smoke’s perpetuity in hip-hop’s current context, serving as less of a lament of what could have been and more as a memorial for what was and still is.

    “Faith” makes it clear Pop Smoke had a real future, with its show of soul and progress.

    ‘Faith’ succeeds by offering not ony an elegiac portrait of Pop Smoke, but also a vision of what he could have become.

    Faith consists of audio files recombined by producers and record executives into something coherent, listenable, and at times even enjoyable, but not quite dazzling. Maybe it’s not an Anthony Bourdain doc constructed with artificial intelligence, but it still feels a bit weird.

    Despite poor production choices and lazy song structures, Pop Smoke's energy and solo spurts of brilliance won't allow for this stale posthumous release to tarnish his legacy.

    Weighed down by star power, which eclipses Pop Smoke, ‘Faith’ feels more disingenuous than its predecessor.

    With friends and collaborators surgically removed, Faith is littered with jarring voices, avaricious creative decisions, and a fundamental sidelining of its visionary figurehead.

    Even if the album sounds good (which is exactly what they wanted), you cannot call this a pop smoke album.

    The Album has too many features that simply do not work well with each other and it also feels like Pop Smoke barely appears and it's his ownThe Album has too many features that simply do not work well with each other and it also feels like Pop Smoke barely appears and it's his own album just think Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon is where things should have been left off at since that album feels complete this one feels incomplete with all the features thrown in to fill that void of incompletion the songs were not super great either but I will say i did enjoy the songs where it was just him they were decent but they could have done better or simply not dropped it.

    Another desperate cash grab from greedy corporations that can't help themselves from defiling artists' graves
