Wopo, whose real name was Travon Smart, was perhaps best known for his single “Elm Street.” Before his death, he was on the cusp of signing a contract with Taylor Gang Entertainment, the label founded by fellow Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa.

Wopo’s attorney, Owen Seman, told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, “He would be making life-changing money. His life was about to change. He was going to be gone… He was going to be out of Pittsburgh.”
