Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo
was reportedly hospitalized yesterday (December 21, 2011).
Lo (real name Carlos Walker) became violently ill from complications associated with diabetes. Shawty Lo has dealt a with the disease for over 11 years now and was even the subject of a vicious rumor after being hospitalized several times over the years.

Shawty Lo’s manager Johnnie Cabbell recently confirmed with VIBE that the rapper is in stable condition and resting.
“He suffers from diabetes and had to seek immediate medical attention, although he is now resting and doing well,” said Cabbell.
Lo made headlines earlier this year, when he spoke of joining 50 Cent’s G-Unit records (click HERE if you missed that) and recently confirmed that “G-Unit” will be powering overhead costs for his D4L Records label. Since he was spotted dropping a ton of dough on Louboutin sneakers, we can only assume Fiddy’s new “50/50” deal was very lucrative.
At any rate, let’s all keep Shawty Lo in our prayers, Fiddy needs him, his 10 kids need him, and we need him to drop some more of that Bankhead music that he’s best known for.
Get well soon Lo!

Shawty Lo balled outta control in NYC recently while the cameras rolled in Part 4 of ‘Lo’s Life,’ his online web series.
Lo “Foolish” -ly dropped a ton of his G-Unit dough on several pairs of what he described as “Red Bottoms” (aka Christian Louboutin Shoes) and brags about his new footwork on film.
He displays each pair one by one for your viewing pleasure, while his D4L crew drools over his purchases. Lo even supplys a copy of his signed receipt as proof that he really spent the dough… *sigh*
[Sidebar: Maybe Basketball “Wife” Royce Reed shoulda taken Lo up on his offer to be his boo. Looks like she missed out on a chance to upgrade her wardrobe… ]

Apparently the stars have aligned and Royce Reed of Basketball Wives (aka Dwight Howard’s Baby mama) has possibly found her a new A-town boo.
SandraRose got the tea from an insider at the club and her sources revealed that the two are now an item:
I’m told that the happy couple came to the club together and left together. “Shawty stuck so close to Royce that she couldn’t breathe!” said my spy.
Shawty, who is signed to 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records, has two chicks fighting for his affections in Atlanta. He has quite the reputation for being a ladies man, and now Royce Reed is under his spell!
Chile… I guess. 😕
Royce looks more like she could pass for one of Shawty Lo’s 10 kids than his potential mate, but I guess love is blind. If you recall, Lo got engaged last summer to one of his baby mamas, but apparently that didn’t go as planned. Now he has his sights on a “basketball wife”.
What do you think about the rapper & the “basketball wife”?
Is this a match made in heaven or an odd couple from hell?
**Updated 7/20/11 2pm ~ Royce just tweeted me and said fuggedaboutit… Lo ain’t her speed.
In case you’re wondering why we haven’t heard much from Shawty Lo these days, it’s because the D4L front man has been getting his business in order.
With no label to fall back on, Shawty has been holding meetings with various label heads to figure out his next move and word on the curb is that he has his heart set on becoming the latest rapper on 50 Cent’s G-Unit roster.
Apparently 50 Cent may be looking to add another artist to his label after moving the G-Unit imprint to EMI last fall and founding G Note Records for his R&B endeavors. In a recent interview with VideoCity.tv, Lo reveals that he may be yellin’ ‘G-G-G-G-Unit’ IF an agreement can be reached between both parties.
I sat down and talked with probably about four or five labels. The best situation I think I like is I had a meeting with 50 Cent and G-Unit. I left New York last Wednesday, and we had a good six or seven-hour meeting. I think it went well.
I’m just waiting on his attorneys to get with my attorneys and I think we gonna concreek it…”
I don’t know what concreek is… but I’m assuming it means that Shawty and Fiddy are gonna finalize their negotiations soon.
