The city of Pittsburgh has taken some pretty big loses over the last few weeks with the shooting death of up & coming rapper Jimmy Wopo, and the East Pittsburgh police fatally shooting an unarmed Antwon Rose.
While a somber “Steel City” now looks to pick itself back up, the team behind Jimmy Wopo recently released his music video for “Lane Life.” The latest Wopo visual gives you the Pittsburgh rapper as he was known to be, “Lane Mane.”
According to a statement attached to the video, Jimmy Wopo’s upcoming project “Muney Lane Muzik 2,” is scheduled to drop later this summer.
The statement reads: “In memory of Pittsburgh’s rising star Jimmy Wopo, his team releases the music video for his track “Lane Life”. Look out for Jimmy Wopo’s upcoming project Muney Lane Muzik 2 which will drop later this summer via Empire. Make sure you SHARE this one everywhere and LONG LIVE WOPO.”
The 21-year-old rapper, was tragically gunned down in a drive-by shooting on June 18, in the Pittsburgh’s Hill District. His death marked the second loss of the day, following the murder of Florida rapper XXXTentacion just hours earlier.
Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino has delivered an epic look into the African-American experience. Using a gripping visual and ad libs from some of your favorite rappers, Glover does it way big for the culture. In my opinion, Donald Glover gets right what Kanye West recently got wrong… “a choice?” Really Yeezy?
In this video, Childish Gambino paints the picture that many privileged Americans have tried to ignored. The careless murders of blacks, Jim Crow, and police injustice are all portrayed, while Gambino struts his stuff with a distracted youth.
