Dallas rapper Lil Loaded - who was best known for his 2019 viral hit "6locc 6a6y" - passed away on Monday, May 31. He was 20.
His attorney, Ashkan Mehryari, told Billboard the aspiring rapper died by suicide.
Mehryari told Dallas Morning News his client's death was "very tragic. "He had a very bright and promising music career ahead of him."
Loaded, who was born Dashawn Maurice Robertson, wrote a suicide note on his final Instagram Stories post:
"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 all the blessings that have been put in my life.
"Sometimes the lines are blurred between being solid and being heartless. I want to thank you for how far I've come and the people you've put in my life to keep me grounded through everything and I love every single one of those people that are genuinely for me. I ask for entrance into your kingdom thru all of my mistakes. I know you love all of your children and I'm ready for my heart and soul to Join you."
Lil Loaded was facing a manslaughter charge following the murder of his friend, 18-year-old Khalil Walker.
He was initially arrested on suspicion of murder last year, but was indicted in February.
Following the viral hit, Loaded signed with Epic Records. "6locc 6a6y" was awarded a gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of America just last week.
Loaded posted about his achievement on Instagram four days ago, insisting he had the "dopest fanbase on earth".
He wrote: "6LOCC 6A6Y Certified Gold. Who runnin dis s**t like me. young N***a S**t dopest fanbase on earth."
Stanley Gabart, whose production company worked with Epic Records, said: "This kid was on a great path. He was struggling with some things we wish we would've known about, wish we could've intervened."
