Multiple sources confirm that Dream Chaser’s own Lil’ Snupe died this morning at the tender age of 18.
An initial report on AllHipHop.com stated the Lousiana artist was shot and killed. Although there are no concrete details as of now, his manager did sent out a tweet confirming the young artist’ death.
Snupe impressed Meek Mill by passing off his demo to him during a tour stop in Louisiana. In less than an hour, Meek gave him a call and signed the young upstart to his Dream Chasers roster. “He was in a van, they was finna pull off. And I went and knocked on the van [on the window]. They let the window down, grabbed the mixtape and it was like 10 minutes later, 20 minutes later they called me,” Snupe told MTV News in April. A real dream story for the young teen.
Lil Snupe joined Lee Mazin, Louie V Gutta, Goldie, Jahlil Beats as a flagship artist for Meek’s record label. His recently released mixtape was R.N.I.C. Realest Nigga In Charge.
This is sad story that this young man didn’t get to even really live his life and enjoy this new journey in building his musical career. R.I.P.
