Rapper Jimmy Wopo Fatally Shot On Same Day As XXXTentacion

21-year-old Jimmy Wopo was shot in Pittsburgh just hours after XXXTentacion.

Just hours after the fatal shooting of 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion -- whose real name was Jahseh Onfroy -- a second fatal shooting has been reported.

Jimmy Wopo has been identified as one of the victims in a double shooting in Pittsburg, with his manager Taylor Maglin confirming the 21-year-old's death on Facebook.

"I lost my brother today and it's the worst feeling in the world," Maglin wrote in the post. "We lost a great person today, but just know I will do everything in my power to make his memory live on forever."

According to local news, Police have said a second victim was transported to hospital in a stable condition but have yet to reveal their identity.

Pittsburgh police released a statement that said Wopo was also transported in critical condition but died later at the hospital.

A Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter who interviewed Wopo in February last year shared a chilling video where the rapper spoke about growing up in a violent environment.

"It kind of helped me see like, 'Damn life could be over that quick'," Wopo says in the clip adding, "How do I want to leave my mark on this world? Do I want to leave it like that? Not like that..."

Artists like Mac Miller and Juicy J shared tributes to Wopo following the confirmation of his death.
