(AllHipHop News) The tragic death of Lil Snupe unfortunately put a halt to the 18-year-old rapper’s rising career. Before his death the young emcee was signed to Meek Mill’s Dream Chaser label and apparently was about to get a major opportunity from Maybach Music Group’s boss Rick Ross.
According to Meek, Ross had reached out to him about getting Snupe on MMG’s upcoming compilation album Self Made Vol 3. Meek uploaded a screenshot of a text conversation with Snupe from two weeks ago on Instagram.
The post shows Snupe’s appreciation for Meek signing him, Meek revealing that Ross wants him for a single for MMG’s August 6th LP, and a caption that just read “Sh*t! crazy.”

There’s no word whether Lil Snupe will still appear on the next installment of the Self Made series, but Meek does celebrate Snupe’s life in a new tribute video called “Nobody.” The song is from Snupe’s R.N.I.C mixtape.
