Meek Mill Signed Lil Snupe Moments After Hearing Demo

Lil Snupe says he waited all of 20 minutes to hear back from Meek Mill about his music. Meek says he "seen potential" in the 16-year-old rapper.

Some may believe that the era of the demo is long gone but that's precisely what helped Jonesboro, Louisiana's Lil Snupe get a deal from Meek Mill. According to Snupe, Meek was so impressed by the 16-year-old's demo that he called him with an offer to join his Dream Chasers imprint roster only minutes after meeting him at a show.

"[Meek] was in a van. They was finna pull off. And I went and knocked on the van, on the window. They let the window down, grabbed the mixtape and it was like 10 minutes later, 20 minutes later they called me," Snupe said of his initial encounter with Meek in an interview with MTV.  

"He was spittin' so much pain. He's from the south with a flow like an East Coast guy," Meek explained. "Like with that bounce flow, all over the place, he really can spit, and he was talking that talk that I can really relate to. I seen potential in him." 

Mill's initial impression of Snupe was so strong that he also took to Twitter to tell fans about Snupe right after hearing the demo, though he didn't spell his name correctly then. Here is Meek's tweet after their first encounter on October 20, 2012.

      ^ This is entertainment. It's not like Meek is a Dentist flashing his money bands on instagram. Ur generalisation of "black people" based on rappers is ignorant or just racist.

      yo does he really say pushing my fart? or is it fort?

  • John-Boy

    They keep signing these rappers at younger and younger ages and then portray them as thugs, killers, and dope dealers. This influences people in similar age groups to do what? Yep, be a thug, a killer, or a dope dealer. It is driven home by images and videos of the young rapper covered in money (see pic above) jewels and woman. Younger people see this and connect the money woman and jewels to selling dope and thuggin.. So they go out and do it. Proudly. Rappers these days are nothing more than pawns used by whites to help destroy the black community. They are no better than the Africans who sold blacks to whites for slavery.

      Amateurs .... go take a class on politics learn how power works. Its actually more complex than white 50 year olds men. No one is forcing these niggas to act like this.

    • Big D

      Exactly this industry is run is run by white 50 plus businessmen, who push their own agendas. 99.9 of these record labels are backed by the exact same share holders who are also investors in private run correction facility's . Do the maths it's really not that difficult
