Among rappers, who often spell it with an apostrophe as "Lil'" or "Li'l" as well as simply "Lil," this moniker is shared by at least a baker's dozen.

Rap music in general remains a male-dominated genre with a few notable exceptions, and the use of Lil is no different in terms of gender breakdown.

Some of the better known users of Lil are anything but when it comes to success, having put up big time sales, while others are ... well, Lil known.

Police have issued a warrant for Tony Holden, a convicted felon who should be considered armed and dangerous, but have not been able to locate him.

Police confirmed Lil Snupe dead early Thursday after he was shot twice in the chest. Snupe (real name Addarren Ross) was just signed to Mill’s label.
