Yesterday, two separate tragedies struck the hip-hop world, as XXXTentacion and Jimmy Wopo were both gunned down in two unrelated acts of senseless violence. While the community mourns, their legacies will live in through their music. As it happens, Pittsburgh rapper BallaMac has come forth to share song featuring the late Wopo, titled "Racky's On Me." While it may mark the first posthumous verse from Wopo, it certainly won't be the last, given the late rapper's prolific nature.
Over a hazy, slow-creeping synth instrumental, BallaMac sets it off with a lavish celebration of his own wealth. Standard materialistic fare, but if it ain't broke. Employing a sing-song flow throughout, BallaMac paves the way for Wopo to slide through with a melodic, energetic contribution. Unfortunately, his presence is all-too-brief, but it should be enough to satiate those looking to hear his voice once again.
Jimmy Wopo, born Travon Smart, was twenty-one when he passed. Police have yet to apprehend those responsible. Rest in peace.
Racky's on me bitch
That strap is on me bitch
I'm coming from the mud
I ain't never had shit
