Lil Keed’s cause of death has been revealed eight months after the Atlanta rapper died suddenly in Los Angeles

The music star, who was affiliated with Young Thug’s YSL Records, died aged just 24 in May.

On Tuesday (January 3) the final findings on what led to Lil Keed dying were released by the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

In the report, obtained from People, the rapper’s death has been attributed to natural causes as a result of eosinophilia.

According to the Mayo Clinic, eosinophilia is a disease in which patients “a have higher than normal level of eosinophils,” which, “are a type of disease-fighting white blood cell.”

“This condition most often indicates a parasitic infection, an allergic reaction, or cancer.”

They also said that Lil Keed, whose real name was Raqhid Jevon Render, had to be hospitalized due to suffering from “stomach and back pains” at around 7:30pm on May 13.

Lil Keed had apparently been “sick in bed for 4 days” in which his brother realized his eyes were, “jaundiced and drove him to the hospital in a private vehicle.”

Once he arrived at his local hospital, Lil Keed had a seizure, “before going unresponsive.”

He tragically died at the medical facility at 10:14 p.m. later in the evening.

According to his family, he did not use drugs and didn’t have any other medical conditions.
