COD: Hit and Run Accident

We are sad to report that Carlos Walker, better known by his stage name Shawty Lo, has just been killed in a hit and run car accident. He was only 40. This was reported by @Headkrack on Twitter earlier today. He leaves behind 11 kids that will now grow up without their father. People say he was recently seen on Snapchat and Instagram leaving the Blue Flame Lounge the night of the accident. He made his last update on Twitter about 5 hours ago. 

We will keep you updated when we learn more details about the incident, but as of today, the Hip Hop World has lost a legend.
