We absolutely hate reporting this type of news. Quality Control rapper Lil Marlo was murdered in Atlanta last night (July 12) in the early morning hours.

Marlo, born Rudolph Johnson, ran with Lil Baby and the two actually dropped a mixtape a few years ago called 2 The Hard Way.ย While Lil Baby’s career has taken off, many pegged Marlo as being next in line to blow on QC’s roster.

Sadly, Marlo was reportedly shot and killed last night on a Georgia highway. Per TMZ, the cops responded to a call at 2:06 am Sunday morning about a car accident on I-285 in downtown Atlanta. They found Marlo shot and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cops have barely any details about how it all went down.

As word started spreading of the 27-year-old’s death on social media, more details started coming. He was allegedly shot and killed on the highway with footage of the incident making the rounds online.

Lil Yachty took to Instagram to pay homage to the fallen rapper, writing, “We just did a song a 4 this morning smh rip brother @lilmarlo_1 ๐Ÿ˜”.”
