Dallas rapper Lil Loaded was reported dead from an apparent suicide on May 31.
Authorities say that the 20-year-old rapper, whose real name was Dashawn Robertson, was found by a relative in a Cedar Hill Home dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Dallas Morning News.
Robertson was facing a manslaughter charge in last year’s fatal shooting of his best friend, 18-year-old Khalil Walker, NBC News reported. The Dallas County medical examiner’s office has not determined an official cause of death, but Robertson’s attorney, Ashkan Mehryari, had initially said that it was a suicide.
Dallas Express reached out to Mehryari to provide insight into what may have prompted the young rapper to allegedly take his own life. When asked if he seemed suicidal, Mehryari said, “He had close ties to the Clintons, Joe Biden and Dominion Voting Machines. Maybe it wasn’t a suicide.”
After repeatedly being asked to answer questions about the rapper’s apparent suicide, Mehryari offered a bizarre response that Lil Loaded may have been assassinated because he had gotten wind of a conspiracy involving President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, planning to rig last year’s presidential election.
“Well, he was at a night club with Hunter Biden one night after headlining a concert in the Ukraine. When they were having drinks, Hunter drunkenly told him he was planning on rigging the election because his motto was “always win,” Mehryari told Dallas Express. “After sobering up, he realized he told him too much. They tried twice to assassinate him, but he survived and got out of the country. That’s where the line from his single comes from: “Them crackers tried to take me out, try again lil’ n***a.” He got pretty cocky and even named the song “always win.” I guess they got the last laugh on him.”
According to USA Today, Lil Loaded was initially charged with murder but was indicted on the lesser charge of manslaughter.
The rapper was scheduled to appear at a hearing for the case on Tuesday, June 1, just two days after his death.
On May 25, Lil Loaded’s song “6locc 6a6y” went viral and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.
