Atlanta rapper and YSL affiliate Lil Keed has passed away at the age of 24.

At time of writing his exact cause of death has not yet been officially revealed, but his passing has been confirmed by close friend Lil GotIt & other artists such as Quando Rondo.

GotIt posted a photo of himself alongside Keed, real name Raqhid Jevon Render, with a caption grieving for his loss, saying “Can’t believe I seened you die today bro”.

His death comes soon after 28 members of Atlanta-based music label YSL (Young Slime Life) Records, including mainstream rappers Young Thug and Gunna, were indicted on RICO (organised crime) charges. Keed himself was not among the people indicted but had close relationships with many of the artists on the label.

Rest In Peace Lil Keed, Prayers to his Family
