Jimmy Wopo dead at 21.
Earlier today, devastating news sprung that XXXTENTACION was shot and killed while vehicle shopping in Broward County Florida. If this news wasn’t sad enough for the world, it is with our deepest condolences that we report rising Pittsburgh rapper Jimmy Wopo has been pronounced dead.
Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 reported that one person was dead and another was hospitalized following a shooting in Pitt’s Middle Hill neighborhood. It has come to our knowledge that the unidentified deceased male was indeed Jimmy Wopo. Wopo is best known for his hit track “Elm Street”. Specific details on the actual shooting were not given.
Fashion Designer John Geiger took to Twitter giving his condolences, making the news official. As we send our prayers to both X and Wopo’s families and friends, keep spinning both their music as we let both of their impact’s reign on.
Man, Rest In Peace Jimmy Wopo
