Today, 20-year-old Brooklyn drill rapper Jay Gwuapo releases a new track and visual for the deeply personal “Lost Files,” which is a track recorded as a letter to his late friends Pop Smoke and KJ Balla following their deaths earlier this year. After being in a dark place grieving their losses, Gwuapo turned to music for expression and healing. Along with the track, he shares the accompanying video via From Nothing Records/Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records. Click HERE to watch/listen.
Last week Guwapo returned with the release of “Black Mask” ft. Pop Smoke. The track is special to the rising rapper as it features one of his best childhood friends, the late Pop Smoke.. “Black Mask” is the only time the two had collaborated, but Pop credited Jay for encouraging him to pursue a career in rap.

Along with “Black Mask” Gwuapo also released three additional tracks “Intro,” “Smoke Season Freestyle” and “Dangerous.” These four tracks honor and pay tribute to Pop as well as KJ Balla, who was a frequent collaborator, labelmate and friend of Gwuapo that was tragically killed earlier this year. Gwuapo has spent this year connecting with fans through his music releases on his SoundCloud and other platforms and these four tracks marked his official return.
