More details are emerging in Lil Keed’s death.
The YSL rapper, born Raqhid Jevon Render, died on Friday at age 24. Now a new report claims he was hospitalized for organ failure in the days leading up to his death.
According to TMZ, Keed complained to his friends and family that he was suffering from severe stomach pain. The situation reportedly got so bad that he went to an L.A. hospital to receive medical treatment. His liver and kidneys eventually started failing, resulting in his death.
The Atlanta MC reportedly battled with alcohol and drugs over the years, but had been clean and sober as of late.
