Lil Loaded, responsible for 2019 viral hit ‘6locc 6a6y’, has died at the age of 20.

The Dallas, Texas rapper’s lawyer Ashkan Mehyari confirmed to Billboard yesterday (May 31) that the cause of death was suicide.

Per NBC News, the Dallas Country medical examiner’s office said that the cause and manner of death is yet to be determined.

Lil Loaded, real name Dashawn Robertson, made waves in 2019 with the single ‘6locc 6a6y’, which was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) last week. Robertson’s last Instagram post celebrated the milestone, proclaiming his fans the “dopest fanbase on earth”. The rapper was signed to Epic Records.

Rappers NLE Choppa and Lil Gnar have paid their respects on social media.

Robertson had been charged with murder in connection with the October shooting of 18-year-old Khalil Walker, but was indicted in February on a lesser charge of manslaughter.

Dallas Morning News reported that Robertson had a hearing scheduled for today (June 1). Mehryari previously told the publication that he didn’t believe Robertson was guilty of anything but that the indictment more accurately reflected the case. The lawyer said that Robertson and Walker had been best friends and that there was “no malice” in the incident.

Fans have paid tribute to the late star online. One Twitter user wrote: “’We ain’t making it past 21′, Rip Lil Loaded, he was really on the come up”, while another said: “rip lil loaded
Shit this one got me sad af.. i can’t even explain”.

Robertson released his debut album ‘6locc 6a6y’ in 2019, with follow-up efforts ‘A Demon in 6lue’ and ‘CRIPTAPE’ in 2020.

Last week, Lil Loaded released the music video for ‘Hard Times’ featuring Hotboii.
