Pop Smoke makes a posthumous debut in the upcoming basketball film Boogie set to be released on March 5th.
The film stars Taylor Takahashi as Alfred “Boogie” Chin, a high school basketball prodigy living in Queens, New York, with dreams of one day playing in the NBA. His parents disapprove, pressuring Boogie to apply for a scholarship to an elite college.
Their Chinese cultural traditions, along with Boogie’s father being a police officer, cause rifts between Boogie and his peers. On top of that, he must juggle his hoop dreams with navigating a new girlfriend, his high school grades, and the expectations held against him as a Chinese basketball player. The late rapper plays Boogie’s rival Monk.
