18-year-old rapper Lil Snupe, who was reportedly shot to death Wednesday night, may have been killed over $100.

The student newspaper The Gramblinite at Grambling State University has tweeted several new details about Lil Snupe's supposed death. Sources apparently told the paper that Lil Snupe was gambling in Winnfield, La when his opponent lost $100. The paper does not specify what type of gambling was taking allegedly place, but several other sites have noted that it may have been a dice game.

The opponent was then so angered over losing the $100 that he allegedly shot Lil Snupe four times in his body and once in his face. UPDATE: Associated Press now confirms that Lil Snupe was shot and killed in an apartment. However, he was apparently shot just twice in the chest.

The rapper's reported death is all over Twitter this Thursday morning, with rap fans lamenting a life apparently gone too soon. While the news has not yet been confirmed, the rapper's manager posted the news on Twitter.

"The call I got this morning is un real RIP 2 my Lil ni--a lilsnupe," wrote Leem7st.

Lil Snupe recently signed to the record label run by Meek Mill. Per MTV.com, Meek was so impressed with the teen's demo tape that he signed Lil Snupe within 20 minutes.

"He was spittin' so much pain, he's from the south with a flow like an east coast guy," Meek said in February. "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, however, has not yet confirmed Lil Snupe's death. However, he did post this cryptic tweet early Thursday morning.

"tell lil snupe hit me up right now!!!" he wrote.

Lil Snupe famously beat an artist on Philadelphia Eagles wide reciever DeSean Jackson's record label during a filmed rap battle. Per Billboard, he released a mixtape in April, and his video for his first single, "Melo," has nearly three million views on World Star Hip Hop.
