Rapper Jimmy Wopo was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting in Pittsburgh on Monday.
He was only 21-years-old.
Via NY Daily News:
Wopo, whose real name is Travon Smart, was shot in the Pennsylvania city’s Middle Hill neighborhood at around 4 p.m., Pittsburgh police said. He died at the hospital, while another unidentified victim was in stable condition.
“I lost my brother today and it’s the worst feeling in the world,” Taylor Maglin, the rapper’s manager, wrote on Facebook.
“He was destined for greatness and he wanted the best for his friends, family and community. We lost a great person today, but just know I will do everything in my power to make his memory live on forever. Love you bro.”
The news of Jimmy’s murder comes on the heels of the news of XXXTentacion’s death in Florida.
When I went to Jimmy Wopo’s Instagram page to learn more about him, the first post I saw was a photo of him and another young man, who was holding and pointing a gun.
The caption read, “I Only Raise Killers ??‼”
