Meek Mill’s 18-year-old protege is dead. Lil Snupe, a Louisiana rapper and recent signee to Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers label, was reportedly shot and killed this morning. Official details have not yet been released, but there are reports he was shot over a game of dice.
His manager took to Twitter this morning, confirming the news.
“@Leem7st The call I got this morning is un real RIP 2 my Lil N*gga lilsnupe”
Others in the hip-hop community, such as Chief Keef, Wyclef Jean, DJ Smallz, Louie V Gutta, are reaching out as well tweeting their condolences.
The rapper was discovered when Meek Mill made a tour stop in Louisiana. According to Lil Snupe, he walked up to Meeks trailer, passed him a demo tape and within an hour had a record deal.
The rapper released a mixtape, R.N.I.C, back in April featuring Meek, DJ Khaled and many more.
