The rising rapper of Atlanta signed on the label YSL of Young Thug, Lil Keed died at 24 years…
The period is dark for Young Thug, who has just learned about the death of one of his foals, signed on his label YSL (Young Stoner Life), while he is himself incarcerated and risks big (we speak of a sentence of 100 years in prison!) for criminal activities related to a gang, which would concern 28 people around him. Many people close to the Thugger’s label as well as the brother of the young rapper, Lil Gotit, announced on the night of May 13 to 14 the death of Raqhid Render aka Lil Keed, while the circumstances of his disappearance remain unclear for the moment.
“Why bro, why you left me bro” posted on the Instagram story his blood brother (with many emojis crying), while Young Scooter, still in the IG story, declared: “Rest my boy, I love you, my little brother”. A few days ago, Lil Keed took the defense of his great Young Thug and Gunna, while we learned about their arrest, recalling in a message that YSL was above all a “lifestyle” and a label that made music: “YSL is a family. YSL is a label. YSL is a way of life. YSL is a lifestyle. YSL is not a gang. YSL is not a criminal organization. YSL is not a street gang. YSL is not a mafia.” Born on March 16, 1998, he was the 6th of 7 children.
Struck down in the middle of his rise
Father of a little girl (Naychur), Lil Keed debuted in the rap game in 2017 and had emerged as a sure thing on the YSL label by developing his Trapped in Cleveland tap series (whose 3rd installment, which included feats from Travis Scott, Young Thug, and Chris Brown, was released in 2020), but also with his 1st real studio album Long Live Mexico (2019). Back in 2018, he made a name for himself by posing with his brother on Lil Uzi Vert’s Heavy Meta track. His biggest commercial success will remain Nameless which had placed 42nd on the Billboard Hip Hop/R&B Songs Airplay and was taken from his project Keed Talk To ‘Em, released in 2018. While he was still scheduled to perform at a festival this May 13 at the Daze In Blue Music Fest in Charlotte, North Carolina, and in a club on May 28 in Cairo, Georgia, he had released his latest single, Rich Shit, with his brother Young Gotit and featuring Ty Dolla $ign earlier this year.
