Rapper Lil Snupe has reportedly died. The news was first reported by AllHipHop.com, which claims that the up-and-coming artist was shot to death. It is unclear yet if these Lil Snupe death rumors are true, but a man who claims to be the rapper's manager also tweeted the news.
According to MTV.com, the 18-year-old Lil Snupe recently signed to Meek Mill's record label. Meek apparently signed the youngster less than a half hour after receiving his mixtape.
"He was spittin' so much pain, he's from the south with a flow like an east coast guy," Meek said. "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."
Meek Mill even reportedly used Lil Snupe in a rap battle aginst Retro, who was signed to the record label of Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson. Snupe apparently won the battle, much to Jackson's chagrin. You can watch video of that battle below.
Meek, meanwhile, has neither confirmed or denied Lil Snupe's supposed death. Instead, he sent out the below cryptic tweet early Thursday morning.
"tell lil snupe hit me up right now!!" Meek wrote.
