Twitter is abuzz with “RIP Lil Snupe” messages after the rapper and protege of Meek Mill was reportedly shot dead.
“It is with a heavy heart that we at stupidDOPE announce the untimely death of the young MC known to the world as Lil’ Snupe. Snupe, who had just recently signed with Meek Mill’s Dreamcatcher’s imprint, was the victim of senseless violence last night and ultimately lost his life.”
HotNewHipHop adds that Lil Snupe had just turned 18 this month and that Meek Mill and Snupe’s manager confirmed that he had been killed:
“Lil Snupe, 18 years old (he just had his birthday seven days ago), was reportedly shot dead, news which has been confirmed by his manager, Leem7st, on Twitter. Meek Mill also tweeted about Snupe early this morning, obviously in disbelief. There are very few details available at the moment, but we’ll keep you informed once more news on Snupe’s death surfaces.”
As both sites note, Leem7st has not provided details on Lil Snupe’s death, simply tweeting once about the 18-year-old’s death before going silent on Twitter.
Snupe’s manager posted the tweet but did not elaborate, and others commenting on the post alleged that Lil Snupe had been killed in a conflict over a dice game — but that allegation has not been acknowledged nor confirmed by anyone close to the up and coming rapper.
The original tweet read:
The call I got this morning is un real RIP 2 my Lil nigga lilsnupe http://t.co/3A7mNRmx66

One user made several Twitter references to a dice game gone wrong, replying to the original tweet and then saying on his own timeline:
