Raqhid Jevon Reed, better known by his stage name Lil Keed, died on May 14, 2022. The rapper was 24. He was 24 when he was signed to Young Thug’s Young Stoner Life rap label. He released two albums that year. Semaja Zair, his younger brother, was known as Lil Gotit and announced the death of Lil Keed later that day.
Although there is no information regarding his autopsy, it was reported that he had been experiencing severe stomach pains for several days prior to his death. It reached the point that he was forced to visit the hospital because his organs were failing.
It is known that Render was a long-term victim of alcohol abuse, but he has since been sober.
Lil Keed was destined to be a rising star. He was named to XXL’s 2020 Young Man Class, which is an annual list of the ten best hip-hop stars. It was a combination of luck and hard work that landed him at YSL. He is now ready to make a big splash in the music business.
Render had worked at Subway, Mcdonald’s and other places before his success. Render had been working with his brother to release music and gain popularity in Atlanta (where Young Thug also hails). After their childhood friend was murdered in 2016, they made the decision to take their music seriously. It was a way for them to escape from the hood.
Lil Keed met Young Thug’s idol and became his mentor. He started freestyling with him. Young Thug gave Young Keed a chance, following some advice from his mother. He borrowed some of his sounds from his mentor. However, his high-pitched vocals set him apart from other rappers with similar styles.
Render became a star in just a few short years after he was launched into success. He released two albums that charted on Billboard 200 and collaborated with many legends who influenced his music.
Render’s three-year-old daughter Naychur, whom he shared with Quana Bunz, is now his successor. She is also said to be pregnant with his second baby.
