This is the ultimate tribute, from a mentor to a fallen protege. On June 22, Meek Mill uploaded a touching, but heart-wrenchingly sad video of Lil Snupe’s song ‘Nobody’ to pay his respects.
Lil Snupe was Meek Mill’s up-and-coming artist until the 18-year-old rapper was tragically shot and killed on June 20. As a send-off for his fallen protege, Meek uploaded an emotional video on June 22 that features many intimate clips of Lil Snupe.
Meek Mill’s Tribute Video To Lil Snupe
The video for “Nobody” by Lil Snupe begins simply with a clip of the 18-year-old talking to the camera — our hearts just sink seeing this young talent alive and well, knowing that he wasn’t long for the world. A message from Meek Mill follows: “May you rest in peace/Forever a Dreamchaser.” Dreamchasers is the name of Meek’s record label, which had just recently signed Lil Snupe.
The intimate footage shown in “Nobody” of Snupe performing and just living life really captures him as a person and emphasizes how tragic his death is. He showed true signs of promise, and was taken far too soon.
Lil Snupe Murdered: Police In Search Of Suspect
Police are still searching for Snupe’s alleged killer. On June 22, the Winnfield Police Department issued a warrant for the arrest of Tony Holden, 36, according to TMZ. Officials believe that Tony shot and killed Lil Snupe during an altercation over video games. He has not been located as of yet, and should be considered armed and dangerous, TMZ reports.
It’s so gut-wrenching to see a talent like Snupe taken from the world at such a young age, but we’re glad Meek Mill and the Dreamchasers are doing everything in their power to make sure that Lil Snupe is not forgotten.
