This won't be the last we hear from Jimmy Wopo.
Last week, the world lost two of hip-hop's rising stars, XXXTentacion and Jimmy Wopo. Much has been talked about regarding X's death, and the future of his legacy, already but there's some comforting news for Wopo's fans following his tragic death.
Wopo's manager, Taylor Maglin, uploaded a photo, taken from the candlelight vigil honoring Wopo. The vigil, which took place in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, had his name spelt out in tea candles, surrounded by his family, his loved ones, and his fans. The caption of the post payed respect to Wopo and his impact on the world.
"Last nights Candlelight Vigil for Wopo was incredible, a positive event and it really showed just how many lives his music impacted," it said.
That wasn't the only thing it said, however. The post also mentions that they have access to a lot of Wopo's unreleased music, and that we'll be hearing it in due time.
"He will be missed by so many but just know we have a ton Wopo’s music that we plan to release in the near future. Through all of us his memory will continue to live on🕯💜," Maglin wrote.
Wopo was one of Pittsburgh's most promising new acts, and it's a shame he never got to see it through to his full potential. The news that he had signed to Taylor Gang before his death only exemplifies that. Hopefully we'll be able to hear new music from him soon, in order to help carry on his legacy.
