The rapper kept his fans constantly up-to-date on his private life through his Instagram account, including posting in April about being under house arrest.

He captioned a photo of himself wearing an ankle monitor, “Sincerely, Mr 6lue 6ag??.”

Lil Loaded was arrested last year for a murder charge relating to the shooting of his best friend, 18-year-old Khalil Walker.

Police officers were called to Walker’s home in southwestern Dallas on Oct. 25. Walker was found shot with a rifle and transported to an area hospital, where he died of his injuries.

According to published reports, Lil Loaded was indicted on a lesser charge in March — one count of manslaughter. He was scheduled to appear at a hearing for the case today on Tuesday, June 1.

The rapper’s final post on Instagram was in celebration of “6locc 6a6y” being certified gold on May 25. His music video for the song has amassed over 29 million views on YouTube.
