The Dallas County Medical Examiner verified that rapper Lil Loaded died on Monday at the age of 20. According to court documents, the actor, whose real name is Dashawn Robertson, was facing a murder conviction for the shooting death of his buddy Khalil Walker, 18, in October 2020, and was scheduled to appear in court for an admonishment hearing on Tuesday.
According to The Dallas Morning News, the Medical Examiner did not clarify an autopsy report. Robertson is most known for his 2019 hit 6locc 6a6y, which the Recording Industry Association of America certified gold last week. Robertson was charged with murder in the death of Walker at first but was later indicted on a lesser charge of homicide in March.
According to the Morning News, his lawyer, Ashkan Mehryari, contended that the shot was done with ‘no malice.’ Mehryari informed the Morning News that the Wednesday court appearance was only an admonition hearing and that the rapper appeared unconcerned.
According to investigators, Robertson shot Walker in the stomach with a rifle and then drove his companion to the hospital, where he died of his injuries. Walker’s phone included a video showing Robertson shooting him, according to police. Robertson surrendered 15 days after the incident and released his mugshot on Instagram with the comment, “I appreciate all y’all support . They try to make u look guilty wen u innocent regardless .. we going to get pass this . Rip my brother love u”
While the nature of Robertson’s death has not been revealed, admirers have been circulating images of a disturbing Instagram story he allegedly wrote recently. It said: “Dear most high, Please forgive me for my shortcomings and all of the times I’ve fell short of making you proud and being appreciative of the blessings that have been put in my life sometimes the lines are blurred between being solid and being heartless I want to thank you for how far I’ve come and the people you’ve put in my life to keep me grounded and humble through everything and I love every single one of those people that are genuinely for me I ask for entrance into your kingdom thru all of my mistakes I know you love all of your children and I’m ready for my heart and soul to Join you.”
According to XXL, it’s unclear when the piece was published, but it has since vanished. Robertson’s death, according to attorney Mehryari, was “extremely unfortunate” and “unexpected.” “He had a very bright and promising music career ahead of him,” he added.
This youngster was on a tremendous pathway, says Stanley Gabart, whose production business collaborated with the star’s label. “He was dealing with certain issues that we wish we had known about and intervened in.”
Fans of hip hop took to social media to express their grief at the loss.
