Robertson’s summer hit “6locc 6a6y” has been viewed more than 28 million times on YouTube. The song was awarded gold by the Recording Industry Association of America last week. After the news about the certification, the rapper took to Instagram to talk about the “world’s dopest fan base”.
His follow-up single “Gang Unit” garnered almost 40 million views.
Robertson signed with Epic Records after “6locc 6a6y” went viral. Stanley Gabart, whose production company worked with the record label, said his death was a shock.

“This kid has been on a great path,” Gabart told the newspaper. “He was struggling with some things that we wished we knew, we could have intervened and come to a different conclusion.”
Robertson was arrested for murder related to the death of his best friend Khalil Walker in October last year, according to the Dallas Morning News. After Walker’s death, the rapper took to Instagram to investigate his arrest.
“I appreciate your support. They try to find you guilty when you are innocent, regardless. We will pass. Rip my brother apart, love you,” he wrote at the time.
Robertson was charged on the newspaper’s February lesser charges of manslaughter reported. He was free and had a hearing scheduled for Tuesday, court records show.
