Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers Records artist, Louisiana teenager Lil Snupe has reportedly died, as affiliates comment.
Earlier this year, Meek Mill expanded his Dream Chasers imprint by signing Jonesboro, Louisiana talent Lil Snupe, just moments after hearing the teenager’s demo.
“He was spittin’ so much pain,” Meek later told MTV of what attracted him to Snupe’s style. “He’s from the south with a flow like an East Coast guy,” Meek explained. “Like with that Bounce flow, all over the place, he really can spit, and he was talking that talk that I can really relate to. I seen potential in him.”
Tragic news has now emerged that in the last 12 hours Lil Snupe has been murdered. Global Grind has reported that Snupe’s manager, Leem, has confirmed the death on Twitter and Instagram this morning (June 20). The photo is of Leem with his buzzing client.
He was allegedly shot over a dice game but this has not been confirmed as of yet.
