ATLANTA, GA – Few new details have surfaced since confirmation of Quality Control rapper Lil Marlo’s murder along Atlanta’s Interstate 285 on Sunday (July 12) but the love for 1st & 3rd creator has been emotionally strong.
Tributes from virtually all his peers flooded social media and each one was more heartbreaking than the next.
Quality Control CEOs Kevin “Coach K” Lee and Pierre “Pee” Thomas lamented over watching their protégé grow and the pain of seeing the ascension being cut short. Lil Yachty revealed the two had just recorded a track hours before his murder and a recently freed Ralo put the pause on his comeback campaign to give a heartfelt eulogy to his “little bro.”
The Atlanta native’s vehicle was found sidelined and riddled with bullets and investigators are looking to learn more.
“The preliminary investigation indicates the vehicle was traveling on I-285 in the southbound lanes when the driver was shot,” Atlanta police said in a statement. “The vehicle came to rest on the left side of the southbound lanes.”
