By Jewel Wicker

A local music festival will honor late rapper Shawty Lo with the help of the group founded by the Atlanta rapper in the early 2000s.

The A3C Festival and Conference will honor the rapper, who died in a fiery car accident in September, with the help of "Laffy Taffy" group D4L. The Atlanta group included Lo, Fabo, Mook-B and Stoney.

D4L released one album, "Down For Life," in 2005. The project featured the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping hit "Laffy Taffy," along with popular snap music anthem "Betcha Can't Do It Like Me."
