It’s been over a year since Meek Mill’s artist Lil Snupe was shot and killed. Before his death, he was in the process of completing his next body of work, RNIC 2: Jonesboro. But thanks to the dedication of his two producers of the project, we may finally hear the remaining music Snupe left behind. Producers Lil Deezyana and C’Nyle got together to finish up the album with his remaining unreleased material.
Snupe was considered a prodigy according to Meek Mill. The MMG rapper signed the Louisiana spitter to his Dreamchasers imprint after Snupe gave Meek his mixtape in 2012. He was signed no less than a half hour after Meek heard the tape. In the summer of 2013, Snupe and his assailant Tony Holden had gotten into an argument over a bet on video games at Holden’s home. Eventually, the fight got out of hand and Holden pulled out a gun. Snupe died at the scene of the crime.
His album is set to feature fellow NOLA native Boosie Badazz on the track “Meant 2 Be.” The official visual for the track will be making its debut on MTV next week. In light of Snupe’s death, his mother has started the “Lil Snupe 4 Cornahz Foundation,” which will help disadvantaged children and families achieve their creative dreams and potential. Look out for the album to drop February 10th.
