Lil Loaded, real name Dashawn Maurice Robertson, passed away at the age of twenty years old.
The Dallas rapper who rose to popularity in 2019 with his viral hit “6locc 6a6y” allegedly committed suicide while in jail on Monday, May 31. The cause of his death is unclear.
Ashkan Mehryari, attorney for the late Lil Loaded, confirmed that the rapper passed while in jail but the manner of which he died has not been confirmed yet.
“I am unaware of, and would be very surprised if drugs were a factor, based on his court ordered drug tests while on bond.” Mehryari said suggesting that the cause of death is the result of a reported suicide.
A screenshot of an Instagram Story post that the Texas-bred artist shared recently began circulating online suggesting that he commited suicide.
“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.”
Before his death, Lil Loaded was facing a major legal hurdle. Back in March, Loaded was indicted on one count of manslaughter in connection with the death of Khalil Walker. A Dallas County grand jury delivered the indictment stating there was enough evidence to charge the young rapper of recklessly causing the death of 18-year-old Walker, who was reportedly Lil Loaded’s friend.
Lil Loaded’s attorney, Ashkan Mehryari, at the time, insisted that his client was innocent of the charge but according to a police affidavit, Lil Loaded shot Walker in the torso with a rifle outside of a home in The Woods neighborhood of Dallas on Oct. 25, 2020 while both men and a witness were standing outside of the residence.
According to police, there was reportedly a video of Lil Loaded shooting Walker on Walker’s phone. Walker was rushed to Methodist Charlton Medical Center where he later died of his injuries and Lil Loaded surrendered to authorities 15 days after the shooting on Nov. 9, 2020.
Other reports claim that the rapper committed suicide after finding out that his girlfriend cheated on him.
The late 20-year-old rapper had a court appearance scheduled for Tuesday, June 01, in connection to the manslaughter charge.
