ATLANTA - The people closest to Shawty Lo are speaking out for the first time following the rapper's sudden death. "It's a sad day for the city," V-103 morning show host Ryan Cameron told 11Alive's Erin Calandra Wednesday morning. "He has a lot of great memories and people will definitely remember his acumen as well as what he did for the community. Before he was famous he was always giving back."
Shawty Lo, born Carlos Walker, was killed in a single-vehicle accident Wednesday morning around 2:30 a.m. Police said his 2016 Audi rolled over while on the ramp to Cascade Road coming from I-285 southbound. The car crashed through a highway guardrail and hit two trees. Walker was ejected from the vehicle, which then caught fire.
