Lil Keed, rapper on Young Thug’s YSL label, dies at 24, his brother says

Atlanta rapper Lil Keed has died at the age of 24, according to his brother, rapper Lil Gotit.
Lil Gotit confirmed his death on Instagram early Saturday morning after rumors swirled on social media.
Lil Keed, whose real name was Raqhid Jevon Render, was one of only a handful of rappers signed to Young Thug's record label, Young Slime Life.
Render was not included in a full-scale indictment against the gang, released earlier this week, which led to the arrests of rappers Young Thug and Gunna. A total of 28 people face charges including violations of the RICO law, murder, aggravated assault, drugs and weapons offenses.
