5 Recent Deaths Of Rising Rappers Affiliated With Stars


Early this morning, unfortunate news broke that Philly rapper Meek Mill’s affiliate Lil Snupe was murdered. While details about the killing have been scant, several artists including DJ Khaled and Turk have expressed their condolences to Snupe’s family in this time of turmoil.

Snupe, a Louisiana native, met Meek Mill while he was on a tour stop in Louisiana, where Snupe apparently passed him a demo CD. An hour later, Meek signed Snupe to his Dream Chasers imprint. His most recent work, which came out just two months ago, was his February mixtape R.N.I.C. 

The entire XXL staff is extremely sympathetic to Snupe’s untimely passing, but since the passing of rapper’s affiliates doesn’t seem to be a rare occurrence (especially recently), we decided to put together a short list of unfortunate deaths of rappers’ affiliates, from Joey Bada$$’s friend Capital STEEZ to Waka Flocka and Gucci Mane’s close confidant Slim Dunkin.
