Funeral arrangements have been made for the slain 18-year-old rapper, Lil Snupe. The Meek Mill protégé was murdered last week over an allegedly video game gambling gone wrong.
Friends and family of the rapper will pay their respects June 29 at Jonesboro-Hodge High School to mourn and celebrate Addarren Ross' life according to his cousin Jasmine Nash.
The aspiring rapper was just seeing success in the Hip Hop industry after he gave rapper Meek Mill his mixtape and was immediately signed afterwards to Maybach Music under Meek Mill's label Dreamchasers this year.
Lil Snupe was shot twice in his torso and pronounced dead at the scene, according to Winnfield police Lt. Charles Curry said.
Murder suspect Tony D. Holden, 36, was arrested of first-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Meek Mill tweeted:
"R.I.P 2 my lil f*cking n*gga #lilsnupe I tried everything in my power 2 get that kid out of the streets!," Meek tweeted June 20th.
"The streets killed my Lil n*gga Snupe...I always told him don't try 2 keep it real wit the streets.... Bcuz they won't keep it real wit you."
"Some people go 2 college...Some people go 2 jail...Some make it into heaven some make it into hell...nobody wanna lose nobody wanna fail..."
Rick Ross also expressed his condolences:
"RIP Lil Snupe #Neverforgotten," Ross tweeted June 20th.
"Today we all suffered a great loss far too soon #lilsnupe great spirit,great talent #NeverForgotten Rest in Paradise."
"NEVER take anything for granted.. @MeekMill: Sh*t crazy! http://instagram.com/p/azFToqCkGL/"
