Young Thug was this week arrested on charges including participating in criminal street gang activity as the result of a larger grand jury indictment that names 28 members and associates of his label YSL Records. Lil Keed defended Young Thug, posting: "YSL is a family. YSL is a label. YSL is a way of life. YSL is a lifestyle. YSL is not a gang. YSL is not a criminal [organization]. YSL is not a street gang. YSL is not a mob."
Artist Lil CeeKay, who also sells shoes, hailed Lil Keed "an incredible father" in an emotional post on the platform. He said: "Fly high Lil Keed. Glad we got to build a bond these past 2 years, will always appreciate the support you always showed. "Every time I would sell to you and Lil Gotit you made sure I felt I was at home and made sure I left safely. "Still remember when we were talking about how you can turn nothing into something.
