Rapper Meek Mill is mourning the death of his teenage protege Lil Snupe after he was gunned down on Thursday.
The Winnfield Police Department says the entertainer, whose real name was Addarren Ross, died Thursday morning after he was shot twice in the chest at an apartment building in the Louisiana city, according to the Associated Press.
The 18-year-old's manager has also confirmed his passing via Twitter. A message posted on Leem7st's blog reads: "The call I got this morning is un real RIP 2 my Lil n--ga lilsnupe (sic)."
Mill signed the youngster to his Dream Chasers Records label less than an hour after Snupe handed him his demo tape during a tour stop in Louisiana earlier this year.
The most uplifting news of the day. Too bad they did not clean out more of the deadwood.
