PREMIERE: Jimmy Wopo is Ready to Ball in “Bench Boy” Video

Twenty year-old Pittsburgh rapper Jimmy Wopo shows us his side of the Burgh in the video for “Bench Boy,” off his latest mixtape, Jordan Kobe.

Wopo told MASS APPEAL that he filmed the video in the East Liberty section of Pittsburgh because he just wanted to do a video with him and his boys celebrating. The Pittsburgh rapper certainly has a lot to celebrate right now. He was recently featured on The Fader as “Pittsburgh Rap’s Newest Hope,” and others have spotted similarities between Wopo’s 2016 hit, “Elm Street,” and Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.”

Wopo also told us how he got that crazy denim jacket that he’s flexing in the video. “My man from the hood just happened to call me like two weeks before the shoot. He makes and sells jackets. He doesn’t do them for everybody, but he did one for me and I put it together with the sky blue Jordan 11’s and it went crazy.”

You can listen to Wopo’s mixtape, Jordan Kobe, below. You can also listen to it on iTunes or download it here.
