RIP SMOKE – [AKTHESAVIOR] x [Powers Pleasant]

Hardly a week after releasing “Be Back Soon,” AKTHESAVIOR keeps the ball rolling with another banger titled “RIP SMOKE.” Produced by Beastcoast legend Powers Pleasant, “RIP SMOKE” is a record paying homage to the late Brooklyn artist Pop Smoke. Pre-release AK also released a chilling visualizer to pour one for Smoke. While it’s completely expected for a Powers beat to be flawless, sonically it’s incredible how fitting it is as a true Pop Smoke-esque record. Although the song is sure to leave fans bittersweet while imagining how Smoke would sound, AK unsurprisingly holds his own solo by shredding the instrumental with his signature surgical flow. Proclaiming Brooklyn as his home, AK puts the world on notice that he’s more than willing to uphold the city’s chariot while honoring Pop Smoke and all the fallen soldiers of New York.  “RIP SMOKE” marks the second single of AKTHESAVIOR’s upcoming mixtape Almost Home, with one more track expected to drop before the project’s release.
