Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo, who was known as much for his music as fathering 11 children with 10 women, died in a fiery car crash early Wednesday, reports the AJC.
The rapper’s brother and a manager identified the victim as Carlos Walker, his birth name. The 40-year-old was “known for the hit “Dey Know,” and was also a member of the Atlanta rap group D4L, who made the hit “Laffy Taffy:” writes the news outlet:
The accident happened when a white Audi went over a guardrail, hit two trees and burst into flames. The driver was ejected from the Audi and pronounced dead on the scene, [Fulton police spokeswoman Cpl. Maureen] Smith said. Two other people in the car were injured and taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, she said.
Shawty Lo made news in 2013 when the Oxygen network announced plans for a special about his blended family, which includes 11 children with 10 women. After outrage and online petitions, the special entitled “All My Babies’ Mamas” was scrapped before it even aired.
