On Monday, May 31, Lil Loaded, the Dallas rapper responsible for the viral summer hit ‘6locc 6a6y’ in 2019, died. Now, the late 20-year-old rapper’s most recent Instagram post is breaking hearts, in which he declares his readiness to “join god.”
On Monday, May 31, the Dallas County medical examiner’s office confirmed the tragic news, stating that the young rapper, real name Dashawn Robertson, had died. Ashkan Mehryari, the rapper’s attorney, stated that his client committed suicide. “I regret to inform you that Mr. Robertson passed away today,” Mehryari said in a statement. A medical examiner’s office official stated that the cause and manner of death had not yet been determined. Lil Loaded’s passing is a devastating blow to the hip-hop music scene, which is already reeling from the deaths of two other rappers on the same day, Supa Gates and VNZA. Supa is a rapper from Dallas, while VNZA is from Detroit. Now that Lil Loaded’s final Instagram post has surfaced, the shocking message was written as a prayer to God.
“Dear most high,” the rapper had written. “Please forgive me for my shortcomings and all the times I’ve fell short of making you proud and being appreciative of the blessings that have been put in my life.’ The Dallas-based rapper then thanked God for all of the people in his life that kept him “grounded and humble through everything,” and said he loves every single one of those people. “I ask for entrance to 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,” he concluded the note.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Lil Loaded’s attorney described his client’s death as “very tragic,” adding that “he had a very bright and promising music career ahead of him.” His death comes just months after he was charged with manslaughter in connection with the shooting death of his friend, Khalil Walker, 18. He was arrested last year on suspicion of murder after allegedly shooting Walker with a rifle on October 25, 2020 in Texas. He was later indicted on a lesser charge of manslaughter earlier this year.
His 2019 song “6locc 6a6y” has accumulated over 29 million views and was also certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America just days before his demise. Stanley Gabart, whose production company collaborated with Lil Loaded’s record label, Epic, stated, “This kid was on a great path,” adding, “He was struggling with some issues we wish we knew about.”
