UPDATE:

WINNFIELD, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Police are still trying to determine why an up-and-coming rap artist from Jonesboro was murdered early Thursday in Winnfield.

I woke up this morning and I lost a great friend. He was a rapper, he inspired many kids to live out their dream, said Nikki Morris.

Although Lil Snupe was a celebrity and well known in the community, 14-year-old Sedarian Joe knew Addarren Ross as his older brother.

"I really loved my brother man. it shocked me this morning when my momma came and told me. I really couldn't believe it at first. it just hurt my heart real bad whenever she told me. For his momma I really feel bad for her because can't nobody feel the pain like she can," said Sedarian Joe.

"He was signed with meek mills record label Dreamchasers," said DJ Star.

"He was really on his way, big time and doing a lot for the state of Louisiana that people probably didn't understand on the music level," said DJ Star.
