Atlanta rapper Carlos Walker, who we all know as Shawty Lo, has died in a fiery car crash. According to reports, the 40-year-old rapper and father of 11 children, was killed Wednesday in a fiery crash on I-285 in south Fulton County.
After initially describing the crash as a hit-and-run, “it has been confirmed now that it was a single-car accident,” Fulton police spokeswoman Cpl. Maureen Smith said.
The crash happened about 2:20 a.m. and temporarily blocked the ramp to Cascade Road.
“The driver lost control of his vehicle, a 2016 Audi, leaving the roadway and striking a tree, causing the vehicle to overturn and catch fire,” Smith said.
The driver was ejected from the Audi and pronounced dead on the scene, Smith said. Two women in the car were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
Shawty Lo made controversial news in 2013 when the Oxygen television network announced plans for a special about his blended family, which includes 11 children with 10 women. After calls for a boycott and online petitions, the special entitled “All My Babies’ Mamas” was scrapped before it even aired.
Such a tragedy. Sending many prayers to his children and their mothers.
