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".

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.
