Atlanta Hip Hop Reacts To The Tragic Passing Of ATL Rap Legend Shawty Lo

The southern Hip Hop world is mourning the sudden loss of rapper Shawty Lo, who lost his life in a fiery car crash in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, after leaving a club appearance.

Atlanta entertainers and Hip Hop personalities are voicing their shock and condolences, sharing throwback photos of the man who helped put Bankhead in the national concsiousness.

Here is what Tip had to say about him:

Damn!!! I just woke up to some Bullshit News…RIP to a true Westside Atlanta Legend!!!!! You truly represented Bankhead to the fullest!!! My Heart goes out to his family,and his children as well. Even through our toughest times I must admit I was impressed,& kinda proud of how well you rep'd our hood,and how much you cared for it. It was a real relief to have someone else helping to lift Bankhead up & hold it there. Can't say enough about how much you meant to the city. Glad we matured beyond our trivial personal differences in time enough to have a laugh about it as neighbors. For those of us who were around & "in the mix" in the mid-late 90's,we know the "Legend of Lo" started waaaay before Music. We salute U G!!!! Rest easy,You'll truly be missed. #RIPShawtyLo #TrueAtlantaLegend
