Rapper Magnolia Shorty
The rapper Magnolia Shorty was shot to death yesterday in her hometown of New Orleans. According to reports, Renetta Lowe (birth name) – was one of two people killed yesterday outside of an apartment complex in eastern New Orleans:
The car containing an unidentified man and an unidentified 28-year-old woman careened into the gate of the “Georgetown of New Orleans” apartment complex, police said. Officers responding to a report of gunfire found the unidentified pair inside. Both had numerous gunshot wounds. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
The slain rapper was discovered by Bryan “Birdman” Williams in 1990.
She became the second female rapper to sign to his Cash Money Records label.
At the time of her death, she was working on her second album — a follow-up to her 2009 release of ‘Monkey on Tha D$ck’ to be released by another record label.

“Lowe said she grew up in the Magnolia public housing complex and earned her moniker from another one of the development’s hip-hop stars, James “Soulja Slim” Tapp, who was gunned down in 2003.
Under the moniker “Magnolia Shorty,” Lowe signed in the early 1990s with Cash Money Records. She was brought to the attention of label owners Bryan “Baby” and Ronald “Slim” Williams by members of the Hot Boys supergroup, who had been her childhood playmates and friends growing up in the Magnolia complex.
Lowe released her first CD on the label in 1995.
Most recently, she had a pair of local club hits with last year’s “Smoking Gun,” a remix of the Jadakiss song, and this year’s “My Boy,” a collaboration with Heart.”
This sounds real suspect.
What if “baby” is repeating unreleased tracks by the late ‘souljah slim’ and cash money has plans to let Nicki Minaj repeat lyrics written by ‘Magnolia Shorty’.

Have some respect for this young lady. You are wrong for posting that comment. I hope God have mercy on your soul.

This is sad to hear my heart goes out to her family members. Nobody and I mean nobody deserves to be killed this way. Even more sadder that is right around the holidays. May Magnolia Shorty RIP.

The ‘birdman’ chain around her neck is rather interesting.

Interesting tidbit that I found about the Original Hot boys not (Turk, Juvenile, Lil’ Wayne and BG).
When Cash Money’s flagship artists were put into a supergroup, Terrance lent the name of his group to the upstart musicians. The rap group “Hot Boys” was born. Of the original Hot Boys, Sterling, Dooney and Mosquito have all been murdered and Terrance is currently serving life-sentence for solicitation to commit murder.

The 28-year-old rapper – real name Renetta Lowe – was found inside a vehicle in New Orleans on Monday (December 21).
Police also found the body of 25-year-old Jerome ‘Man Man’ Hampton in the vehicle. Both had multiple gunshot founds to the head and body.
Shorty was affiliated to Lil’ Wayne’s Cash Money, and the rapper paid tribute to his late friend in a message on Twitter.
“R.I.P to my big sister Magnolia Shorty…this is a krazy world,” he wrote.
Police have launched an appeal for potential witnesses, according to NOLA.com.

Why do I think this was a blood sacrifice for the cash money records I am just saying.

It had to be, why would anyone shoot a person 26 times? They wanted to make sure her casket was closed at burial.

Nola.com is reporting that between 10:30 Monday morning and Tuesday night, five people were killed on New Orleans streets, and three men were injured by gunfire. A 21-year-old man was shot dead in Algiers on Monday morning.
Hours later, local rapper Magnolia Shorty and a 25-year-old man were shot several times inside a vehicle in eastern New Orleans. Andre Joseph, 37, died on the steps of a house on North Villere Street later that night.
And on Tuesday morning, a maintenance worker discovered a man’s body inside an apartment on Parc Brittany Boulevard. Police Superintendent Ronal Serpa noted that until the past weekend — when two men were killed — there hadn’t been a fatal shooting in New Orleans for about two weeks. Now there are five, and just in time for the holidays. Shaking our heads over here at The Root.

@Quiana That’s exactly what it was. These simple ass Black celebrities had better stop joining these satanic fraternities. They will be burning up with the beast.

“This is weighing so hard on me,” said rapper and R&B singer Trishell “Ms Tee” Williams.
Williams was the first woman signed to the New Orleans-founded Cash Money Records, in the early 90’s. Lowe was the second, and only other, female artist to join the label in its first heyday. The two women bonded as teenage performers, and enjoyed a long and close friendship that ended, tragically and prematurely, Monday afternoon.
