T.I. Calls Shawty Lo An ATL Legend!

ATL rapper T.I. took time out to pay homage and his respect to the late fellow ATL rapper Shawty Lo following the rapper’s untimely death yesterday.

Tip posted a photo of the two together on his Instagram page and referred to Shawty Lo as an ATL Legend!

“Damn!!! I just woke up to some Bullsh*t News…RIP to a true Westside Atlanta Legend!!!!! You truly represented Bankhead to the fullest!!! My Heart goes out to his family,and his children as well. Even through our toughest times I must admit I was impressed,& kinda proud of how well you rep’d our hood,and how much you cared for it. It was a real relief to have someone else helping to lift Bankhead up & hold it there,” said T.I.

Both Tip & Shawty Lo hail from that “Westside, Bankhead” as Young Dro would say.

Their previous beef even spilled into their tracks “Dunn Dunn” and “What’s Up, What’s Haapnin.”

Although they once had their differences over who really ran/was from Bankhead, it is nice to see T.I. pay his respects.

T.I. has said that their feud was unnecessary, but it did result in some great music. The ATLiens were able to squash it and even perform together.

Interestingly enough, there have been people accusing Tip of showing fake love lately, as they claim Shawty Lo did an interview right before his death claiming that T.I. was still trying to blacklist him from the industry.

Rip Shawty L-O!

Damn!!! I just woke up to some Bullshit News…RIP to a true Westside Atlanta Legend!!!!! You truly represented Bankhead to the fullest!!! My Heart goes out to his family,and his children as well. Even through our toughest times I must admit I was impressed,& kinda proud of how well you rep'd our hood,and how much you cared for it. It was a real relief to have someone else helping to lift Bankhead up & hold it there. Can't say enough about how much you meant to the city. Glad we matured beyond our trivial personal differences in time enough to have a laugh about it as neighbors. For those of us who were around & "in the mix" in the mid-late 90's,we know the "Legend of Lo" started waaaay before Music. We salute U G!!!! Rest easy,You'll truly be missed. #RIPShawtyLo #TrueAtlantaLegend
