If you so happen to follow DreamChaser and MMG artist Meek Mill on twitter or Instagram, then by now you've noticed all of Meek's "R.I.P lil Snupe" captions on his photographs and hash tags on twitter showing his love and rememberance for his friend Snupe. Lil Snupe was shot and killed recently–Luckily his murderer, 36 year-old Tony Holden, decided to turn himself in a little after 10 a.m. yesterday morning. Here is an unreleased video of Snupe & Louie V freestyling in the studio months before his death.
Multiple sources have confirmed that Meek Mill's Dreamchasers artist, Lil Snupe, died this morning. The young MC was only 18 years old. An early report to All Hip Hop says that Snupe was shot and killed, but we await more details and a confirmation on the cause of death. Snupe's manager confirmed his passing with a tweet below.
Definitely a shock to see the news this morning. Snupe is obviously so young, but I was starting to hear a lot of buzz behind him a few months ago after more and more freestyles and verses kept comin' out. He really had potential and a lot of skill already — so much so that Meek Mill famously signed him within an hour after hearing his demo at a tour stop. R.I.P. to young Lil Snupe.
