The 21-year-old was considered a rising star in the Pittsburgh rap scene

Rising rap star Jimmy Wopo has died in a double drive-by shooting in Pittsburgh, his manager has confirmed.

Wopo, 21, was identified as one of the victims on Monday evening (18 June) within hours of another tragic incident which saw 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion killed in South Florida.

CBS Pittsburgh reports that two people were rushed to hospital later confirming one had succumbed to their wounds.

Wopo's manager Taylor Maglin confirmed news of his client's death on Facebook.

“I lost my brother today and it’s the worst feeling in the world," he wrote. "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 #LongLiveWopo”.

He added: "Jimmy unfortunately passed away and I ask at this time you keep his family in your prayers during this difficult time. He had such a bright future and I can’t believe he’s gone."

Real name was Travon Smart, Wopo was considered an emerging rap talent following the release of a music video for his track "Elm Street" which amassed over six million views on YouTube in 2016.

Investigators state that Wopo was shot at close range with two bullet holes reportedly seen in the driver’s side window of the vehicle. The other victim is in stable condition.

According to KDKA, a witness saw the victims' vehicle being followed before it pulled alongside and fired two shots before fleeing.

Rappers Wiz Khalifa and Pusha T have paid tribute to Wopo on social media.
