Over a year after his untimely death, the rapper was awarded no less than 5 different trophies at the Billboard Music Awards.

More precisely, his talent and art were recognized in the following categories: Top Rap Artist, Top New Artist, Top Rap Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album and Top Rap Album.

At the ceremony, his mother, Audrey Jackson showed up to accept the honors on his behalf and talk about her son and his message.

Audrey started her speech by saying: ‘Thank you to all the fans for honoring his life and the spirit of my son, so much he continues to manifest as if he were here in flesh still. He created music for the kids who has to sleep 4 in a room, the kid who needs to figure out how to get to school every day so he can graduate and to make his mom proud. He did this so 14 year olds wouldn’t have to kill to prove they’re somebody.’

She went on to mention ‘That is the irony in all this. So thank you Billboard Awards leadership for honoring my warrior Bashar Barakah Jackson [Pop Smoke’s real name], we call your name.’

Fans know that these were, in fact, not the first awards he received posthumously.

The late rapper was also honored at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards where he won in the Best New Hip-Hop Artist category and was also nominated at the GRAMMY Awards for Best Rap Performance.
