LIL KEED HAS PASSED AWAY AT 24
The 24-year-old passed away on Friday (May 13). No cause of death was revealed, but his brother Lil Gotit, friends and more took to social media early Saturday (May 14) to pay tribute to him.
"Can't believe I seened u die today bro I did all my cries," Gotit wrote on Instagram. "I know what u want me to do and that's go hard for Mama Daddy Our Brothers Naychur and Whiteboy."
Keed emerged as a fixture in Atlanta Hip Hop thanks to his Trapped In Cleveland series, his A-Teamcollaboration with Zaytoven, Lil Gotit and Lil Yachty and helping the rise of YSL as a label. He appeared on bothSlime Language and Slime Language 2compilation albums.
Last year, Thugger gifted Keed a brand new Mustang for his 23rd birthday out of love for the young rapper who looked up to him and his evolving success.
The death of Keed adds to a grim week for YSL. On Monday (May 9), Thug and others tied to the label, includingGunna, were arrested by Georgia authorities on racketeering and gang charges as the state alleges YSL is a front for a street gang and Thug is tied to numerous crimes in Atlanta, including attempted murder and more.
