Shawty Lo was killed in a car accident when his Audi crashed and caught fire on an Atlanta highway on Tuesday. Born Carlos Walker, he was a founding member of the quartet D4L who achieved a #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 with ‘Laffy Taffy’ in 2006, dethroning Mariah Carey’s ‘Don’t Forget About Us.’ ‘Laffy Taffy’ also went on to break the 2007 Guinness World Record for most downloaded song in the history of music. Shawty Lo’s other best known hit was released in 2007 – the Lil Wayne featuring ‘Dey Know’.
