I'm a walkin' bomb so my young boys grenades

No Afrika Bambaataa?

"Now I'm that muthaf*ckin' n*gga, tell me sumthin' I don't know
Tick-tick, bitch - Jimmy Wop 'bout to blow"


Jimmy Wopo - Walkin' Bomb Part 2
(From YouTube; 2016)



The unlikely scenario where the Elm Street kid from Pittsburgh drops another blamger. File this under ‘there's life in the old Get Up Offa That Thing break yet’ and ‘rap videos which abandon their sub-plot halfway through.’ Did the white kid get outta Wopo's neighbourhood in one piece or is he lost in time like the spannered penalties in the Italy/Germany game? Who knows, but Wopo is a right motormouth of a rapper with this one.

Song in the intro sounds coo too

Agreed.

I'm also feeling that dance he does in this and the Elm Street video. More rappers need their own trademark dance.

I've been living in Pittsburgh for close to 10 years and these two Wopo songs are probably the best thing I've heard out of the city since I've been here. Seems like it's connecting with the kids too, which is much better than the regressive boom bap or chief keef-lites that seem to dominate the pgh underground scene

Curious to see what his Woponese mixtape will bring now after these 2 songs + the snippet song in the trailer.
