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.
