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.
“I saw something in him. His demo tape spoke to me. I saw myself in him,” Mill said Saturday, according to the Times.
