Lil Loaded Trial
Lil Loaded was also facing legal troubles just before his death.
The "Emotional Killer" artist was arrested in Nov. 2020. And was due to face trial on Tuesday in a manslaughter case that stemmed from the Oct. 2020 shooting of his 18-year-old best friend, Khalil Walker.
Per his lawyer, the hearing hadn't been weighing on the rapper, who was out on bond by December. He further asserted that Lil Loaded was innocent of the charge, which was lessened to manslaughter in March.
Lil Loaded was 20 years old.
