Lil Snupe is dead at the age of 18, according to multiple reports.

The emerging rapper from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, who recently signed to Meek Mill's Dream Chasers label, passed away early this morning.

Some sources indicate that he was shot and killed, although no official details, including the location, have been released as of this posting.

No homicides with a similarly aged victim occurred in the Baton Rouge area overnight, though it's unclear if he still resides in that city or was there last night.

In any case, Lil Snupe's manager, DJ Smallz and Dream Chasers' Louie V Gutta both tweeted of the rapper's death this morning with heavy hearts.

Snupe repped his home state in his last tweet, writing simply:

"i Hold it Down 4 Louisiana."

Meek Mill signed Snupe to Dream Chasers last year after listening to his mixtape for 20 minutes, the late Louisiana rapper told MTV News in February.

"He was in a van, they was finna pull off," Snipe recalled.

"I went and knocked on the van, on the window. They let the window down, grabbed the mixtape and it was like 20 minutes later they called me."

"He was spittin' so much pain, he's from the south with a flow like an east coast guy," Meek Mill, who released Snupe's debut mixtape in April, told MTV.

RIP.

You people are some of the most ignorant people ever. A young boy is dead. He just turned 18. Fuck the fact that he was a rapper. He lost his life over nothing. Maybe the guy that shot him was an asshole that just wanted to kill just because his life isn't right. That's like saying the kids from sandy hook was having to much fun so the guy had to kill them. Have a heart and show some sincere. If you can't do that then y'all don't need to comment. What happens if his mom look at this. Y'all gonna break her heart. Take that shit back to the caves where y'all belong

Only cold blooded murders deserve to die.. The foolish and prideful often end up dead because they messed with the wrong person. He probably was an asshole to make someone lose it and kill, but still just because someone is an asshole doesn't mean they deserve to die.

People need to follow the teachings of Christ because if you trying to make it in this world without faith,and you all puffed up with pride your fall can be very great.
