PITTSBURGH - Local rapper Jimmy Wopo has died following a double shooting in Pittsburgh's Hill District neighborhood Monday.

The drive-by shooting was reported around 4:20 p.m. near the intersection of Wylie Avenue and Duff Street.

Wopo, whose birth name is Travon Smart, died at UPMC Presbyterian Hospital about two hours after he was shot, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office.

Channel 11 talked to Wopo's grandfather outside of the hospital.

"He has everything going for him. Everything. But the streets will kill you," James White said.

XXL Magazine recently called him one of the best and brightest new rappers.

Yeah, if you jump from the roof of a skyscraper. But that's not what he did. The "thug culture", of which he was a part, got him. Live like an outlaw, die like an outlaw, etc.
