A tragic day for the hip-hop community as rapper Lil’ Snupe as shot and killed on Thursday morning in Winnfield, Louisiana. The 18-year-old signed to Meek Mill’s newly formed Dream Chasers label in late 2012.
A native of Baton Rouge, La, it’s still unknown why the young prospect was in the small town of Winnfield. According to CBS’ KNOE8, Snupe whose real name is Addarren Ross, was killed around 4:00 a.m. at the Maplewood Apartments with two bullet wounds.
News first broke on Twitter when Lil’ Snupe’s manager “Leem7st” and Dream Chasers Louie V Gutta tweeted the sad announcement. This afternoon, Meek Mill tweeted his thoughts on the tragic incident. Back in April, Snupe released his R.N.I.C. mixtape with appearances from Meek Mill, DJ Khaled, Curren$y, and Trae Tha Truth.
