NEWORLEANS - Hundreds of fans and friends packed the streets Thursday afternoon for the funeral and second line in honor of slain rap artist Magnolia Shorty.

Shorty, whose real name is Renetta Lowe, was gunned down along with a man she was with in a New Orleans East apartment complex last week.

Several streets were blocked off for the event and many of the city's movers and shakers in the hip hop industry were on hand, including Lil Wayne.
