Sources close to TMZ have revealed that the rapper was experiencing severe stomach pains in the days leading up to his death. The pain became worse and he ended up checking into a hospital in Los Angeles to have it checked out by a doctor. The pain got worse after he was admitted to the hospital and his kidney and liver began to fail.
The rapper had been sober in recent times after battling his issues with substance abuse. The L.A. County Coroner office said that they would be conducting an autopsy on Keed this week.
Lil GotIt was among the first to publicly confirm Keed’s death in a heartbreaking message shared to his Instagram page. “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,” he wrote.
GotIt later offered an update from Thug, who was denied bond in the YSL RICO case. “Talked to @thuggerthugger1 yesterday keed you f***ed him up with this one but we know you guarding him through these times and make sure he gone be alright We Da Proud Family can’t nothing stop us,” he added.
R.I.P. Lil Keed.
