50 took to Instagram to request Drake, Chris Brown, and Roddy Ricch’s services.

In the wake of Pop Smoke’s death, 50 Cent wants a say in the late Brooklyn rapper’s legacy. On Sunday night, the rapper-turned-music mogul announced his intentions.

“I’m on the move listening to Pop smoke,” 50 said on Instagram. “I decided I’m gonna executive produce and finish his album for him.”

Shortly afterward, 50 began soliciting contributions from industry heavyweights like Drake and Roddy Ricch.

“Tell @roddyricch I’m looking for him,” he continued, “I need him on Pop album.” The “Ballin” MC replied with a handshake emoji and “say less.”

Pop Smoke’s manager Steven Victor also replied to the post. “This arrangement would be a gift to the world,” Victor said.

Authorities have not made any arrests related to the case. The Los Angeles Police Department is currently investigating a potential motive for the shooting.
