Hip Hop’s tendency for posthumous track releases don’t just apply to legends like Tupac Shakur. The burgeoning artist, Lil Snupe, is still spitting bars long after his tragic departure in June 2013 at only 18 years old. A freestyle eerily titled, “Live From Ghetto Heaven,” by the Meek Mill protege was released last night proving there might be more Lil Snupe to be heard. Snupe pairs bars with another newcomer Tay as the two take turns to spit in the four minute video. Watching Lil Snupe playfully yet aggressively beat up the beat showcases his hunger and willingness to enter the upper echelon of rap. If only.

MMG’s Lil Snupe is just one of many up-and-comers we’ve lost too soon. Just last month we lost Waka Flocka Flame’s brother, Kayo Redd, and T.I.’s Grand Hustle signee, Doe B.
