The 21st Annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards - Inside

**UPDATE: This was not a hit-and-run. New details from the AJC reveal that Shawty Lo’s white Audi went over a guard rail, hit two trees and caught fire. Lo was ejected from the car and killed, while two other people were injured and taken to the hospital.

We are so sad to report the death of rapper Shawty Lo at the age of 40. The terrible news was reported to “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show” producer Beyonce Alowishus by his manager, and we are heartbroken about his passing.

“Such a good all around dude,” is what “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show” co-host Headkrack said about the unexpected passing of the rapper. Shawty Lo would “do anything for anybody that he was cool with.”

Da Brat added, “his style was legendary.”

Shawty Lo was in fatal accident early this morning while leaving the Atlanta strip club Blue Flame, and it has not been confirmed if it was a hit and run accident or if he was ejected from the vehicle he was in.

The death of Shawty Lo is especially sad, as he is survived by 11 children, and this family just lost Shawty Lo’s father about a week ago.

We will update you on this story as more details are released. Sincerest condolences to the children of Shawty Lo.
