Lil Keed, the Atlanta-born rapper signed to Young Thug’s Young Stoner Life label, has died, representatives for the artist confirmed to Complex and XXL.
While circumstances surrounding his reported death remain unclear, Keed’s brother, Lil Gotit, seemingly confirmed the news on social media. Details remain scarce but according to several reports, Lil Keed has sadly passed away. Days ago, we reported on Keed, real name Raqhid Jevon Render, advocating for his YSL peers, including Young Thug and Gunna, as they remain incarcerated. He shared a post that spoke of YSL as a “lifestyle” and a record label, not a grand, and the YSL rapper was applauded for speaking out on behalf of his friends.
Rest in peace Lil Keed. Our hearts go out to his family and friends. pic.twitter.com/nveRXqZQ0s— RapCaviar (@RapCaviar) May 14, 2022
