Maybach Music Group member Meek Mill is reminding the world of his slain artist Lil Snupe months after his fatal shooting with the release of "Lil N*gga Snupe."
Mill released the new track Tuesday (August 13), a couple months after Snupe had his life cut short.
Meek Mill has been vocal in mourning the recent death of 18-year-old Louisiana rapper Lil Snupe, who was signed to his Dreamchasers label, and here he offers a full memorial over a Boi-1da and Maven Boys instrumental. He dissects the broader culture of violence in Philadelphia with lines like "as I'm running through my city nigga all I see is murder/ain't nobody seen it bet you everybody heard it" and laments Snupe's lost potential. With the haunting hook of the simple observation that "All he wanted was a coupe," it's a powerful tribute. (Complex)
In early July, a 21-year-old Louisiana resident was placed behind bars for an alleged role in the murder.
Winnfield Police have made another arrest in the murder of Addarren Ross also known as Lil' Snupe. On July 3, authorities booked Edrick O. Stewart, 21, of Monroe, into the Winnfield City Jail on one count of manslaughter, according to Winnfield Police Lt. Charles Curry. No bond has been set for Stewart. (Shreveport Times)
One of Snupe's alleged shooters gave himself up a month prior.
The man accused of fatally shooting Addarren Ross, the rapper known as Lil' Snupe, surrendered to authorities today. Tony D. Holden, 36, of Winnfield, turned himself at 10:15 a.m. today at the Winnfield Police Department. Police Chief Johnny Ray Carpenter and Assistant Police Chief Russell Jones took Holden into custody without incident, police Lt. Charles Curry said. Holden has been booked into Winnfield City Jail on one count each of first-degree murder, armed robbery and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. No bond amount has been set.

In late June, a funeral service for the Maybach Music Group associate took place.
Hundreds of mourners gathered this weekend to pay their final respects to Lil Snupe, the promising 18-year-old rapper who was shot and killed earlier this month. According to the Shreveport Times, the teen's funeral service was held on Saturday at Jonesboro-Hodge High School in Lil Snupe's hometown of Jonesboro, La. Mourners reportedly began arriving three hours before the service began. Rapper Meek Mill, who had signed Lil Snupe (born Addaren Ross) to his DreamChasers record label last year, was among the many attendees. (Huffington Post)
