Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG Atlanta, GA -- The Raw Report Presents Shawty Lo- The Real Bankhead Story, one of the hottest and most controversial DVD's on the market, will be available exclusively at f.y.e. stores on April 29th. The DVD, which shows the D4L Records/Asylum recording artist at his Atlanta studio, backstage at his shows and in his element on Bankhead, the neighborhood in which he claims the title as "King".

Despite the controversy that has surrounded him, Shawty Lo is an advocate for giving back to his community. He recently hosted an episode of the nationally recognized campaign "Make It Rain In The Hood" along with Hot 107.9 radio personality Pezo In Da Cribb where the rapper freely gave out cash, groceries, raffle prizes, provided complimentary food, haircuts and face painting for the kids. "I love doing whatever I can for my community, especially Bankhead because that's where I grew up. It's not about me doing things when the cameras are rolling or doing something for just one day. On any given day, you can find me doing good in my hood."

Shawty Lo, who recently disclosed that he suffers from diabetes, will be participating as a Team Captain in the American Diabetes Association Step Out program in September, a 5K walk that raises money and promotes awareness of the chronic illness. Shawty Lo released his debut album Units In The City on February 26th and most recently became MTV's latest "Discover & Download" artist, as well as having his second single, "Dunn Dunn" added as MTV's Jam of the Week.
