Rapper Carlos Walker, aka “Shawty Lo”, was killed in a fatal and fiery, one-car crash on Wednesday morning, September 21, 2016. A resident of Moultrie, Georgia he’s a founding member of the hip-hop group “D4L” and in 2003, founded D4L Records. He is perhaps best known for his debut single “Dey Know.”

In 2008, he received a “Rookie of the Year” and “Track of the Year” ["Dey Know] BET Awards. Last we heard of Shawty Lo and his entertainment career, the rapper-turned-prospective reality star is still working to get his ill-fated series, “All My Babies’ Mamas,” on Oxygen Network with his then 11 children with 10 different women. One of the women, Angela “Chocolate” Beasley, 36, died on last July 26, 2015. Ironically, she too died in a fiery car crash.


The Georgia Department of Transportation reports the vehicle that was struck hit two trees before catching on fire. The other vehicle fled the scene. Cpl. Partrena Smith said one person died after being ejected, and two others were transported to the hospital.

He was 40 years old
