The Atlanta veteran drops by to talk G-Unit, rap feuds and the ups and downs of his colorful career so far.
Carlos Walker, known widely as Shawty Lo, began his hip-hop career in the group D4L, who were responsible for singles like “Laffy Taffy” and helped define Atlanta’s mid-2000s snap music sound. By 2007, he’d gone solo with the album Units in the City, and after a lengthy wait, he released his guest-packed second album Still Got Units in 2011 as part of a deal with 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records. Shawty Lo continues to grind on his own new material and that of others by way of D4L Records. He’ll take us through his current projects and some of the more colorful moments of his career – late-2000s TI feud, anyone? – when he visits us in our Atlanta studio.
