About Shawty Lo

Shawty Lo has earned his net worth as co-founder of D4L records and a member of the hip hop group D4L,and as a solo artist. He was a winner of two BET hip hop awards and one Ozone award.
Atlanta-born and bred-trap rapper Shawty Lo, aka Carlos Walker, did not reach national prominence with his street-hustling raps, but by ushering in the “snap dance” craze with the Billboard-topping “Laffy Taffy” as part of his four-man crew, D4L, in 2005. He co-founded both the group and, acting as CEO, the D4L Records label two years earlier with the intention of only working behind the scenes and never really contributing many verses to the group. D4L’s debut single, “Betcha Can’t Do It Like Me,” was a big local hit in Georgia in 2004 and hinted at the group’s potential crossover success. Before Shawty Lo saw any of that success, he was convicted on drug charges and had to serve a one-year prison sentence. By the time he was let out in July 2005, the “Laffy Taffy” song, which later reached number one on the pop charts and break several digital and ringtone sales records, already had blown up. After a pair of solo mixtapes with Atlanta’s DJ Scream, Shawty Lo obtained his own record deal with Asylum in summer 2007 and delivered his debut album, Units in the City, the following year. The LP was preceded by the hip-hop/R&B chart-climbing single “Dey Know.”
He was born on September 13, 1976 in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.
