The 20-year-old rising rapper posted a video of himself opening gift bags with tags that displayed the address of the home where he was staying, to his Facebook story Tuesday night — leading some to speculate as to whether or not the killer used the post to scope out his location.  :o

Just this month, he released his second mixtape Meet the Woo 2, containing features from Quavo, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Fivio Foreign and Lil Tjay.
