MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - A vigil was held tonight in Atlanta for a rapper with south Georgia ties.
Carlos Walker, known as "Shawty Lo," died in a crash on I-285 in Atlanta early this morning.
He has relatives in Moultrie.
His cousin Demetrius Walker was just with Shawty Lo in Atlanta over the weekend for the funeral of the rapper's father.
Now the family is mourning two losses.
"His dad actually moved to Atlanta to help him," recalled Walker. "They were actually apart at one point in life and now they're getting back together. He moved from (Moultrie) back to Atlanta so Carlos could take care of him because he had a heart attack."
Investigators initially said the wreck was a hit and run but now say it was a one-car crash.
