Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo's funeral ended just the way he would have liked ... with a pit stop at the local strip joint.
Friends and family remembered Lo Friday with a memorial service followed by a procession straight to The Blue Flame Lounge ... one of Shawty's favorite strip clubs.
The video is fantastic. Lo's hearse pulls up to the club and a mourners/patrons observe a candle-lit moment of silence.
40-year-old Shawty was killed a few weeks back when his 2016 Audi hit a tree -- he was posting videos from The Blue Flame hours before his death.
Talk about a happy ending.
