Early this morning, AllHipHop.com initially reported that the Meek Mill-endorsed artist was "shot by some haters." Details are scarce right now, but Lil Snupe's manager Leem has confirmed the death on Twitter with this message: "The call I got this morning is un real RIP 2 my Lil n***a lilsnupe."
The upcoming Louisiana talent was only 18 years old.

Rapper MJ the Almighty has implied that Lil Snupe died in a gambling bet, and rumors on Twitter report that the money was as little as $100. "Lil Snupe said, 'I refuse to let me mama lose me to some bullsh*t.' Rolling dice was that 'bullsh*t.'"
The rapper tweeted out a picture of the Lil Snupe playing video games shortly before his death, proving that life can be gone in a single fleeting moment.
Meanwhile, label head Meek Mill has yet to comment on the news or confirm it for himself. As of 5:48 this morning, he had just tweeted "tell lil snupe hit me up right now!!!"
Meek Mill signed Lil Snupe to Dreamcatchers earlier this year, after listening to only a few shorts moments of a mixtape the young MC gave to him after a concert.
Before his death, Lil Snupe released one mixtape R.N.I.C.
