Texan rapper Lil Loaded, who achieved viral success with the single “6locc 6a6y” in 2019, has died aged 20.
The rapper, whose legal name was Dashawn Robertson, died Monday, according to the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s Office. Its cause and mode of death have not yet been determined, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Ashkan Mehryari, an attorney for Robertson, called his death “very tragic”.

“He had a very bright and promising musical career ahead of him,” Mehryari said. He said his client had committed suicide, NBC News reported.
Robertson’s summer hit “6locc 6a6y” has over 28 million views on YouTube. The song was certified gold last week by the Recording Industry Association of America. Following the news of the certification, the rapper took to Instagram to post about having the “most drugged fan base on earth.”
Her next single, “Gang Unit”, racked up nearly 40 million views.
Robertson signed with Epic Records after “6locc 6a6y” went viral. Stanley Gabart, whose production company worked with the record company, said his death was a shock.

“This kid was on the right track,” Gabart told the newspaper. “He was struggling with some things that we wish we had known, I wish I could step in and come up with a different result.”
Robertson was arrested last year for murder in connection with the October shooting death of his best friend, Khalil Walker, according to the Dallas Morning News. After Walker’s death, the rapper took to Instagram to talk about his arrest.
“I appreciate all your support. They’re trying to make you look guilty when you’re innocent, no matter what.
Robertson was indicted on the slightest charge of manslaughter in February, according to the newspaper reported. He was free on bail and had a hearing scheduled for Tuesday, court records show.
