An early morning crash in Atlanta, GA, has claimed the life of local rapper Shawty Lo. Manager and longtime friend Johnny Cabell tells V103’s The Ryan Cameron Morning Show With Wanda Smith that the 40 year old, who’s real name is Carlos Walker, was involved in the crash on southbound Interstate 285. Early indications were that it was a hit-and-run accident. Police say it happened around 2:20 this morning in south Fulton County.
Cabell told The Ryan Cameron Morning Show With Wanda Smith, “he died, he was ejected from the car.” He went on to say “this is crazy, I just can’t believe that my friend is gone. It just doesn’t seem real.”
Indications are that the 2016 Audi hit two trees, and caught fire as it went over a guard rail. Shawty Lo apparently died at the scene after being ejected from the vehicle. Two women were transported to the hospital.
