The Late Shawty Lo Releases “B.I.G.” Featuring Boosie Badazz
Atlanta will forever be in mourning over the loss of one of their great pioneers. Produced by Gamble, “B.I.G.” captures Shawty Lo rapping about when he lost his mom and all of the aspirations he had before his tragic passing. To follow up the hook sung by Alexis Branch, Boosie jumps in to reminisce on his ups and downs as he pays respect to the late MC.
“My momma died of cancer when I was 17/Hell happened to the American dream?,” Shawty Lo raps on the opening verse. “Bankhead hero, Robert DiNero/I always wanted to be bigger than Nino.”
“All my albums are classics, underated though/People asking why you keep having them babies when you aint really made it though,” Boosie raps. “The college girl, the crazy hoe/The times when the money low/The pain Bankhead feel the day they lost Shawty Lo.”
The Atlanta vet was tragically killed last year in a fatal car accident. Since then, entertainers from all over have paid respect to the fallen legend from Jeezy to Rick Ross to Beyonce. The release of his last video "Put Some Respek On It" also came shortly after his death.
Shawty Lo’s new LP, R.I.C.O. is set to drop on March 24 and it will have features from O.T. Genesis, Yung Ralph, and Shawty Lo’s kids Quando and Keke.
