Reports are coming out that Magnolia Shorty has passed away in New Orleans after a shooting. Rumors started popping up on Twitter that Magnolia Shorty had been shot, and though it looked as though it may be a classic celebrity Twitter hoax, sadly, a DJ Wild Wayne of Q93.3 announced on air that Magnolia Shorty is deceased.
Magnolia Shorty was 28-years old, and was the victim of a double homicide in New Orleans. Her real name was Renetta Lowe, and she came from one of the poorest areas of New Orleans, the Magnolia Project.
Magnolia Shorty became a successful and well known rap artist after two of her childhood friends introduced her to label owners at Cash Money Records, where she was signed in the early 1990s.
Our prayers are with Magnolia Shorty’s family during this difficult time.
