Dallas rapper Lil Loaded has been charged with murder for allegedly gunning down an 18-year-old man, authorities said.
The rapper, whose real name is Dashawn Robertson, remained held Tuesday on $500,000 bail in Dallas County following his arrest Monday on a murder charge, jail records show.
A spokesman for the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Robertson’s arrest, but referred additional inquires from The Post to Dallas police.
A Dallas police spokesman said Robertson was charged for an Oct. 25 homicide, but declined additional comment.
“No further details are available at this time,” spokesman Carlos Almeida wrote in an email.
The sheriff’s spokesman, meanwhile, told Complex the 20-year-old rapper surrendered to deputies on an outstanding murder warrant. Robertson allegedly gunned down 18-year-old Khalia Walker, Complex reported.
Cops responding to a report of a shooting in the Woods section of Dallas were told that Walker had been driven to a hospital, where he died hours later. A rifle was used in the fatal shooting, according to the report.
Robertson, Walker and a third man named Cameron Walker were outside Khalia’s home when two shots were fired, sending Walker’s sister, Khija, outside, where she saw him “lying on the street with a gunshot wound to his torso,” according to an affidavit obtained by Complex.
Robertson and Cameron Walker were then spotted by Khija standing over Walker’s body, the affidavit states.
While waiting for an ambulance, Khija grabbed Robertson’s phone and saw a video showing him shooting her brother, who went by the name Savage Boosie, according to the report.
Cameron Walker and Roberston then drove Walker to a hospital in the rapper’s car before Robertson dropped him off at the scene of the shooting and fled, Complex reported.
Lil Loaded, who has 315,000 Instagram followers, can be seen in a photo posted by Walker just nine days before the shooting.
“We came up the hard way,” a caption on the Oct. 16 post reads.
Robertson, meanwhile, later memorialized his friend in a video posted to his Instagram profile on the day of the shooting.
“So much love fa they thought we had the same mama,” Lil Loaded wrote in the post. “Ima see you soon.”
It was immediately unclear if Robertson has hired an attorney who could speak on his behalf. The rapper, who is signed to Epic Records, dropped his latest mixtape, “A Demon in Blue,” in October after first breaking through with his 2019 hit, “6locc 6a6y.” Complex named him as a rising talent to watch this year, the outlet reported.
A rep at Epic Records did not immediately return a call seeking comment on Robertson’s arrest, Complex reported.
