I received an email from Shawty Lo’s camp today. They want me to let all of you guys know that he does not have HIV. He is suffering from Diabetes.
After much public speculation and most of it untrue, it became apparent to publicly state that Carlos “Shawty Lo” Walker is not infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. He does however suffer from Diabetes, a serious condition that affects millions of people, particularly those of color. Despite occasional set backs, Shawty Lo continues his rigorous work schedule in support of his debut album Units In The City. He appreciates the outpouring of concern and support for his health but he is doing fine.
