#LongLiveShawtyLo|RIP Shawty Lo

 March 31 1976 - September 21, 2016

With heavy hearts Ear 2 The Streets has to report that Atlanta Rapper Carlos Walker better known as Shawty Lo passed away early Wednesday morning in a single car accident on I 285 in Atlanta. Fulton County police say the crash happened around 2:20 a.m. when the 2016 Audi that Shawty Lo was driving crashed over a guardrail, hit several trees and caught fire at the Cascade Road exit.The police department says the 40 year-old was ejected and died at the
scene. Two women were also in the car and were injured and taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries. After initial reports of the crash were reported  it was thought to have been a hit-and-run, but Fulton police spokeswoman Cpl. Maureen Smith said,“It has been confirmed now that it was a single car accident.” His manager confirmed the news on Shawty Lo's Twitter account putting out a statement. ( Below with others reactions) From Ms. Street Cred directly I am sending out my condolences to his family and friends. I can only imagine what they all are going through.May his soul rest in peace. I definitely will miss the music that this man made and I hate that the rap community taking yet another L. He will truly be missed. Check out some of his most iconic visuals below.  His camp did release his final visuals last night and I will do a separate entry on "Put Some Respek On It" in the very near future.

"The Last Laff"| Smurf The God Mixtape Review

Disrespect the game I'll have you sleeping with the mackerel, 100 round drums I'll give a nigga an anthem.
--Smurf Da God

"In The Building"

With help from legendary DJ Rell and La Cosca Music Group Smurf The God was able to release his debut LP as a Mixtape classic earlier this year. Upon listening to the first track he jumps right into it, however just when you think you about to get right into the song DJ Rell's voice appears. I don't know why but I like artist that get straight to the point. And even though  DJ Rell came through it did nothing but prepare listeners for Smurf. You get a lot of different vibes when listening to "The Last Laff" It is content for the struggle, for the hustlers, for the thinkers and even for those of you that's about your issues. If you ever wanted to get the last laugh this mixtape is the perfect one to motivate that laugh. Getting the vibe of Drake and Kendrick Lamar his flow is undeniable. He has the content and the delivery is there. The cover art is cute because it's a true #TBT of Smurf The God. It reminds me of what Yo Gotti did with his cover art and countless other rappers. The simplicity of the cover doesn't prepare you for his content or his lyrical annihilation of his punchlines. Rapping isn't for everyone and even the best of the best can sometimes have a flop. I do not think this was a flop for Smurf, more like a precursor to what is yet to come from Smurf The God. One thing I was not a fan of was the misspelling of laugh, but upon further research I discovered that  laff is the alternative spelling of laugh. So big kudos to Smurf for using his intelligence to fool us all. There are several links below to check out "The Last Laff" As well as contact information to get more acquainted with Smurf and his team.
