Texas rapper Lil Loaded, who found success with the track 6locc 6a6y, has died at the age of 20.
The rapper’s lawyer told Billboard that he had taken his own life, however Dallas County’s medical examiner’s office has said it has not yet determined the cause and manner of death.
Real name Dashawn Maurice Robertson, he released the single 6locc 6a6y in 2019, which went on to be certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) only last week.

In his last Instagram post, he said he had the “dopest fanbase on earth”, while sharing the news about his track going gold.
He had also reportedly shared a message in a recent Instagram story (which expires after 24 hours) that said: “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.
“I ask for entrance into your kingdom thru (sic) all of my mistakes. I know you love all your children, and I’m ready for my heart and soul to join you.”
Robertson was due in court on Tuesday in a manslaughter case from October 2020, in which his best friend, 18-year-old Khalil Walker, was shot.
