YSL is having a really tough week. Lil Keed, a member of the record label, has passed away.
On Saturday morning, news broke about the rapper’s death. Around 1:30 a.m, Keed’s brother, Lil Gotit, confirmed the tragic news on Instagram. A rep of Keed also confirmed his death with XXL. Keed was only 24-years-old, and the cause of his death is currently unknown.
“Can’t believe I seened u die today, bro. I did all my cries. I know what u want me to do and that’s go hard for Mama Daddy. Our Brothers Naychur and Whiteboy #ImaHoldthisShitDown,” Gotit wrote in his Instagram post.
He also shared a note about his brother‘s death on his Instagram story. “@lilkeed Whyyy bra whyyy u leave me bra,” Gotit wrote alongside a selfie of himself with multiple emojis.
Lil Keed made a name for himself after joining Young Thug’s YSL record label. Keed created his fan base through his divergent sound paired with his melodic flair, rhymes, and falsetto voice. Keed’s discography includes Nameless, a 2018 song from Keed Talk to ’Em, the Love Live Mexico track “Snake,” released in 2019, and “Wavy (Remix)” featuring Travis Scott, included on Keed’s Trapped on Cleveland 3 album.
Prayers go out to the Keed family and the YSL team.
