Watch Pop Smoke's acting debut in new trailer for 'Boogie'

While his parents pressure him to focus on earning a scholarship to an elite college, Boogie must find a way to navigate a new girlfriend, high school, on-court rivals and the burden of expectation. At the time of his death, Pop had been working on his film debut in Boogie, as well as a possible collaboration with Dior.

The film stars Taylor Takahashi, Taylour Paige (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom), Pamelyn Chee, Mike Moh, Jorge Lendeborg Jr. "We can cook, clean, count real good, but anything else, we're picked last".

Pop Smoke was on the verge of taking over the world, making plays in music, film, fashion, and other avenues. But among the challenges Boogie faces off-court in order to achieve his dreams of entering the National Basketball Association, he faces on-court rivals like Monk, who is played by Pop Smoke. The "Woo" rapper was shot and killed during a home invasion in Hollywood Hills, where he was staying.

Pop Smoke's posthumously released album, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, was named as one of the 10 best albums of 2020 by Complex. A deluxe edition was released later on what would have been Pop's 21st birthday on July 20th.

Boogie hits theaters March 5.
