The final Flashback Friday tribute of this week for the memory of Shawty Lo comes from, of course, the hit that established him right at the start of his solo career and made him a Bankhead, Atlanta legend for life.
From his running jog to his "big ups to all my haters" line as the horns of the Bails Beats, Born Immaculate instrumental played in the background, Shawty Lo created a Mason-Dixon line classic that would be played at every big Southern black event. Whether it was football games with the marching bands or Greek life doing strut line dances, you couldn't have a good time without your DJ putting on "Dey Know" back when it came out nine years ago. And most would agree that is still the case nowadays before the tragic death of Shawty Lo this week.
So without further adieu, here is the third and final Flashback Friday selection for this week, in dedication to Shawty Lo, "Dey Know."
This is The Whole Delivery.
