“Born March 16, 1998, the rapper was raised in the same Atlanta neighborhood as Young Thug, who played an influential role in Lil Keed’s music as a mentor and founder of the YSL imprint under 300 Entertainment,” NPR said. “He and Lil Gotit, his younger brother, were making music together in 2017 when they started gaining popularity. And in 2018, he signed with YSL Records for his album ‘Trapped on Cleveland 2.’”
Lil Keed was best known for the song “Nameless,” which made it onto two Billboard charts tracking R&B and hip-hop in 2018. As of Saturday evening, his video for “Nameless” has more than 33 million views and about 345,000 likes on YouTube.
