Lil Snupe Dead After Apparent Shooting
Louisiana-based rapper Lil Snupe, who only recently signed to Meek Mill‘s Dreamchasers Records, has died. He was found dead and reports indicate that he was shot. He was just 18.
Details are scarce as of press time, but his manager issued a tweet and a photo (posted above) confirming the sad news that the young rapper had passed away.

The call I got this morning is un real RIP 2 my Lil nigga lilsnupe
Snupe caught Meek Mill’s attention by boldly handing his mixtape demo to the superstar after one of his Louisiana gigs. Mill was in a car about to drive off, but Snupe had the guts to knock on the window and hand over the tape.
In a dream-come-true scenario, within 20 minutes of receiving the music, Meek called Snupe and snatched him up to be a part of his label roster. It’s widely assumed that an upstart giving a demo to an established act won’t lead to much, and that the material will never be listened to. But this case proves that notion wrong.
Snupe recently dropped the ‘R.N.I.C.’ mixtape, as well.
