WINNFIELD, LA – Rising rapper and Meek Mill Protege Lil Snupe was shot and killed early Thursday morning. CBS affiliate KNOE was the first to break the story.

Snupe suffered two fatal gunshot wounds to the chest early Thursday morning at the Maplewood Apartment Complex in Winnfield. Paramedics were on scene and were unable to revive him.

Lil Snupe, born Addarren Ross, recently inked a deal with Mentor and Dream Chasers. Meek Mill, the CEO for Mentor and Dream Chasers, was performing at a concert when Snupe was able to pass a demo of his work to the rapper.

Snupe released his first mix-tape, ‘R.N.I.C.’, earlier this year and featured DJ Khaled, Curren$y, Trae the Truth, Meek Mill and Yo Gotti.

Meek Mill tweeted, “The streets killed my Lil nigga Snupe…I always told him don’t try 2 keep it real wit the streets…. Bcuz they won’t keep it real wit you”

Officials say they have a person of interest, but have yet to determine a motive in the killing.
