A manager for the emerging talent, who had recently signed with Meek Mill's Dream Chasers label, announced the news via his Twitter page. "The call I got this morning is un real RIP 2 my Lil nigga lilsnupe," manager Leem7st wrote on June 20, while also sharing a photo of him with the young MC.
Friends DJ Smallz and Louie V Gutta also appeared to confirm the news of the young rapper's passing, sharing their condolences on Twitter, writing "RIP" and "I aint gone lie i cant stop crying! I Can't Believe My Youngin Gone!"
