Watch: Pop Smoke's Posthumous "Shake The Room" Film

music /

"Shake The Room (feat. Quavo)" is a standout track from Pop Smoke's Meet The Woo 2.

It's the first creative release of any kind from Pop Smoke's camp since he was tragically killed during an early morning home invasion in Los Angeles on February 20.

Directed by Virgil Abloh's Off-White International Rap Video Studio, "Shake The Room" captures Pop Smoke and Quavo speeding around Paris in a Ferrari and enjoying themselves in a fine restaurant alongside other patrons.

When Pop isn't dodging a Ferrari doing donuts in the middle of the night or dancing on top of a table, he and Quavo pick at some delectable Crème brûlée, sip red wine and even make their way back to the kitchen.

"This video is real life footage," reads a subtitle early on. "This is barely a "video shoot.""

At the end of the flick is a minute-long still screen memorializing Pop. "IN LOVING MEMORY," it reads. "POP SMOKE FOREVER."

The setting for the rambunctious shoot was "inside & outside a typical French restaurant in my neighborhood," according to Virgil, who shared some thoughts about Pop Smoke and the video on Instagram.

"[Pop Smoke's] impact will live on thru the art he left us," Virgil wrote. He goes on to recall that the video was shot off the cuff the night after the Louis Vuitton show for Paris Fashion Week.

Pop also attended the Off-White show for Paris Fashion Week, and Virgil appropriately outfitted him with a blue and black monogrammed Off-White jacket. You can see him below strolling by the Louvre while wearing the rare piece.

Not many details have emerged around other posthumous plans for Pop, but 50 Cent recently announced he was going to executive produce the Brooklyn artist’s posthumous album. 

During an Instagram Live session last week, 50 talked about the first time the two met. According to 50, Pop took notes throughout their entire conversation. 🙌
