Magnolia Shorty Mourned By Lil Wayne At Funeral In New Orleans

As fellow Cash Money affiliates Lil Wayne, B.G., Juvenile, Mack Maine and Baby made their way into the Fifth African Baptist Church in New Orleans on Thursday morning (December 30), hundreds of fans gathered outside the church to pay tribute to fallen hometown rapper Magnolia Shorty.

In addition to Weezy and his crew, a number of other local bounce artists made their presence felt at the funeral, including Partners-N-Crime, Kilo G, DJ Jubilee, Big Freeda and Ms. Tee, who was the first female artist to sign with Cash Money, followed by Shorty in 1995, who was the label’s second, and last, female member.

The closed funeral began at 11 a.m., and while more than 1,000 friends and relatives packed into the brick house of worship, the street outside was overflowing with nearly 1,500 fans paying tribute to the bounce legend. Many were wearing shirts in praise of Shorty (born Renetta Lowe), 28, with messages such as “R.I.P. Magnolia Shorty” and “We Love You Renetta,” as well as buttons that read “Forever ‘Shorty.’ ”

Wayne, Birdman and Mack Maine tweeted their condolences in the wake of Shorty’s murder last week, but on Thursday, it was former Cash Money rapper and Hot Boyz member B.G. who remembered his fallen comrade after the funeral.

“Magnolia Shorty was like a sister to me and it ain’t just what she meant to me; it’s what she meant to Louisiana, it’s what she meant to New Orleans,” B.G. told MTV News, noting that he was the one who brought Shorty into the Cash Money fold when she was just 12 years old. “She was the queen of bounce. She was someone you loved to be around. She was the best at what she do. I’m really speechless right now, but it ain’t sunk in yet. … She owned this city, but she was this close to ownin’ the world.”

The program for the service featured a photo of Shorty under the headline “A Homegoing Celebration for a Phenomenal Queen.” Shorty was gunned down last Monday alongside an unidentified man in a vehicle that crashed near a New Orleans East housing complex. Her murder came seven years after the November 2003 killing of another New Orleans rapper, James “Soulja Slim” Tapp, whose original stage name was Magnolia Slim and who grew up with Shorty in the Magnolia housing projects and gave her the Magnolia Shorty stage name.

The funeral was to be followed by a traditional New Orleans second line celebration in which her casket was be paraded down the street accompanied by musicians, friends, family and supporters. – MTV

R.I.P. Magolia Shorty 🙁
