On Saturday (May 14) rising Atlanta rapper Lil Keed died at the age of 24. He was signed to Young Thug‘s Young Stoner Life Records.
Keed’s brother, Lil Gotit, first shared the news of his passing in an Instagram post: “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.”
Tributes soon poured in online, with friends, collaborators and admirers expressing condolences for the late rapper.
“Damn RIP Keed,” Travis Barker wrote on Twitter.
“So Talented Gone [Too] Soon,” Murda Beatz tweeted.
Keed signed to YSL, an imprint of 300 Entertainment, in 2018. He released two projects on the label and worked with artists including Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Uzi Vert, 42 Dugg and Quavo, among others.
Keed’s death follows the arrests of YSL co-founder Young Thug and rapper Gunna, who were among 28 people indicted in Georgia on conspiracy to violate the state’s RICO act and street gang charges. Keed was not among those named in the indictment.
