Meek Mill’s protégé, Lil Snupe was found dead early Thursday morning, just a week after celebrating his 18th birthday. As a new artist on DreamChasers Records, the Louisiana rapper has already developed a name for himself in the industry and today fans and friends are mourning the loss.
Snupe is best known for the track “Melo” off his RNIC mixtape, which had over 2 million hits. “These n—-s hate it cause I made it but I’m just chilling at my destination,” was one of his famous lines from “Melo” and his fans definitely agreed with him.
