Lil Snupe’s dad, who was recently released from prison, is angry after visiting his son’s gravesite.
It’s been almost eight years since young rapper Lil Snupe died, and his father Big Snupe has seen his grave for the first time. But Big Snupe, who had been incarcerated at the time of his son’s death, was not pleased with the gravesite his son received.
Lil Snupe, who was often described as a promising young rapper, died in 2013 after he was shot twice in the chest following an argument that ensued over a video game while in his friends’ apartment. He was only 18 at the time of his death.
Some days later, 36-year-old Tony Holden turned himself in to the police and was charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery, and illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. About one month later, another suspect, Edrick O. Stewart, was also arrested and charged.
On Monday (April 12), Lil Snupe’s father, whose correct name is Charlie Brown, documented his first visit to his son’s grave on Instagram. Brown, who served 20 years in prison, shows the journey to the gravesite with flowers in hand, telling followers that he had anticipated this visit as he was not able to grieve properly since his son’s death.
“I been holding this sh*t right here since 2013….Held this sh*t eight years in the pen. I had to hold it in,” he said.

His anticipation was met with disappointment when he arrived at the gravesite, arguing that Lil Snupe deserves a proper gravestone.
“This ni**a ain’t got no muthafu**in’ headstone on this sh*t. God d*mn. I never thought I’d come see my muthafu**in’ son and he’d have no muthafu**in’ headstone.”
He proceeded to call out Meek Mill and his record label, Dream Chasers (to which Lil Snupe was signed), and also Jay-Z for allowing his son to be buried like that.
“There should be a monument up to this ni**a’s shit. Man, what the f*ck went on? Did Meek Mill see him get put in the ground? Was Meek Mill around here to see him get put in the ground? He wasn’t around here to see him put in the ground? But he came and seen him in the casket?”
He continued: “He was affiliated with Roc Nation. JAY-Z, I see you f*ck with godd*mn your kids to the fullest. You love Blue Ivy and them. I love Lil Snupe. Don’t get it twisted … Ain’t been no rappers down here that was f***ing with Lil Snupe? One of them ni**as in the rap game? One of them major ass n***s? Y’all dudes say y’all solid, man. … Snupe wouldn’t have did y’all like that, bruh.”
There has so far been no response to Brown’s complaints from any of the rappers.
