Meek Mill just dropped the visuals for “Angels”, which is a tribute to the late rapper Lil Snupe who died at just 18 in 2013, a year after meeting Meek Mill and signing to his record label Dreamchasers.
“Angels” is a follow up to “Lil Nigga Snupe”, which came out in 2013 as part of Mill’s mixtape Dreamchasers 3.
Lil Snupe met Meek Mill in 2012, when he was just 17 years old, after a show at Grambling University in Louisiana.
As Meek described in an interview for Complex in 2013, as they were heading to the airport, “A little kid knocked on the window and gave us a demo. We listened to it, we liked it and he popped up in Philly one day and was hanging with us.”
Snupe impressed Meek with his freestyle skills and quickly became a rising star in the rap game just before he was shot to death over a dispute with one of his friends the following year.
Eight years after his death, Meek Mill still celebrates the memory of the young rapper and talks about the impact that his death had on him on “Angels”. The video shows footage of Lil Snupe talking about how they met and how he looked up to Meek Mill even before they started working together.
Take in the visuals above.
