Previously, he had been arrested after he surrendered on 9 November 2020. He was kept in jail with a bail amount of  $500,000 bail, as per jail records retrieved on 10 November 2020.  Later, on 8 December 2020, he disclosed on Instagram that he had been "home" while announcing his upcoming mixtape CripTape (released on 11 December).

The rapper, unfortunately, passed away on the night of 31 May 2021 at the age of 20 because of suicide. He considered Michael Jackson as his idol as a child. In his musical career, he drew inspiration from artists such as Lil Wayne, The Game, Chief Keef, Snoop Dogg, Rich Homie Quan, and Tupac.

Early Life and Education 

The rapper was born on 1 August 2001 in San Bernardino, California. He lived until he was ten before his family moved to Dallas, Texas. He went to an elementary school in California.

Michael Jackson was his idol as a child. In a 2020 interview with XXL, he said, “I like Michael Jackson a lot, to me he started the whole rapping/singing thing. That’s where it originally came from for me. I like Lyfe Jennings a lot. Rod Wave reminds me of Lyfe Jennings. I don’t hear that comparison a lot. I grew up listening to Lyfe because of my mom.”

He also drew inspiration from artists such as Lil Wayne, The Game, Chief Keef, Snoop Dogg, Rich Homie Quan, and Tupac.

Career

Robertson began his career in the music industry in late 2018. He released his first song, ‘B.O.S.,’ a cover of YNW Melly’s ‘Butter Pecan,’ after spending some time mastering his skills.

The rapper released his first single from the mixtape of the same name, titled ‘6locc 6a6by’ on 27 July 2019. YouTuber Tommy Craze used the song in a reaction video where he viewed YouTube music videos with 0 views.

Eventually, the song received millions of views on YouTube in the first 24 hours of its release, leading to Robertson’s signing with Epic Records.

'6locc 6a6y' 

‘6locc 6a6y’ is a song he released in 2019. It got him his first big break, propelling him onto the national rap scene. It was an excellent opportunity for someone who had only been rapping since the age of 18, or around nine months, into his hip-hop career. The song is short yet powerful, a brief summation of Loaded’s struggles to survive in Dallas. 

On 25 May 2021, the track was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. Robertson then released a tape with the same name and made videos for the tracks, including “Gang Unit,” which garnered millions of views on YouTube.

According to Robertson, these two songs were the biggest hit of his career. “Gang Unit and 6locc 6a6y are my two biggest songs right now. 6locc 6a6y, it’s no song out like it. Gang Unit, it brings people together, people having fun to it. It’s going international, gang members everywhere turning up to it,” he revealed in interaction with XXL.

His debut studio album ‘A Demon In 6lue’ was released in 2020 with seventeen songs in total including, ‘To The Max,’ ‘Narco,’ ‘While I’m Here,’ and ‘Emotional Killer.’.

Another of the rapper’s hit tracks was ‘Avatar,’ which featured King Von, a young Chicago musician. King Von passed away in November 2020.

Murder Case

In the year 2020, the singer was charged with murder. He was alleged to have shot and killed one of his best friends. On 25 October 2020, while filming a music video, Robertson allegedly shot and killed 18-year-old Khalil, his close friend. His lawyer, Ashkan Mehryari, said that there was “no malice” and that Walker and Robertson were friends at the time. 

According to the police affidavit, Robertson and  Cameron Walker were outside the house with the victim when the two shots were fired. The affidavit elaborates that the victim's sister, Khija, rushed outside their home and witnessed her brother lying on the ground. She told police that her brother was "lying on the street with a gunshot wound to his torso" and the other two men were standing over him.

The affidavit also states that it was one of the two men who asked Khija to call 9-1-1. It claims that they were waiting for an ambulance when the vitim's sister “picked up [Lil Loaded’s] phone and saw a video taken on the phone showing the suspect shoot the complainant.”

According to the police, it was Robertson and Cameron to the victim to the hospital before the former dropped the latter to the victim's home and fled. 

On the same day the incident occurred, Robertson took to his Instagram and mourned Walker’s death. “So much love fa u they thought we had the same mama … ima see u soon,” he wrote. Later, on 12 November 2020, he claimed that he was innocent on his Instagram, stating, “After Walker’s death, Lil Loaded took to Instagram to address his arrest. “I appreciate all y’all support . They try to make u look guilty wen u innocent regardless .. we going to get pass this . Rip my brother love u.” 

Later, Robertson surrendered to authorities on 9 November 2020, after a warrant for his arrest was issued. Robertson was charged with manslaughter in February 2021. At the time, he had been released after his bail at Suzanne Lee Kays Detention Facility was slashed to $75,000. He had a hearing scheduled on 1 June 2021.

Death Of His Friend and Suicide 

Robertson died on 31 May 2021 at the age of 20. 

The Dallas County medical examiner’s office confirmed his death on the same day. However, officials did not reveal the cause of his death. 

According to Cedar Hill police, a relative discovered Robertson with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound at home in the 1500 block of Allen Drive at 11:20 a.m. on 31 May 2021.

Later, it was revealed by his attorney Mehryari that the rapper had committed suicide. In a statement, Mehryari said, “Sadly, I am able to confirm Mr. Robertson passed away today.” He described his client’s death as “very tragic” and said he didn’t see it coming. 

According to him, the record label (Epic Records) had a lot of faith in Robertson and had put a lot of money into his achievement. He added, “He had a very bright and promising music career ahead of him.”

Stanley Gabart, whose production company collaborated with the record label, revealed that losing a young man who was so talented and full of joy came as a shock to him.

“This kid was on a great path. He was struggling with some things we wish we would’ve known about, wish we could’ve intervened and gotten to a different outcome,” Gabart stated.
