On Saturday, June 11, 2022 Addarren “Lil Snupe” Ross 27th birthday was celebrated. So much controversy circled around this event causing such a stressful planning. Lies and miscommunication caused a division leaving some to feel their lives may have been in danger. Politics played a major part of the division.
Humans can be inconsiderate attimes. Do anyone stop to think, it’s a grieving mother who put this event together inattempt to celebrate her son who isn’t alive?” Due to the inconsideration and disrespect this year’s event was The Grand Finale.
Lil Snupe is known worldwide. It isn’t that serious to fuss with anyone about celebrating him, it did make more sense for him to be celebrated in his home town unfortunately it is always something when it comes to Jonesboro. This event was never about an approval needed. The mayor was not left to make a decision. The ruckus came from the value of a dollar. Everyone was focused on who would make money. No love shown at all. There was too many two face people involved playing both sides during the whole process.
Never the less, Lil Snupe’s Birthday Celebration was a success. The children got the chance to play as kids. Many traveled from other states & areas with one focus, to celebrate Lil Snupe. His mother Denesha would like to thank everyone involved who helped with this year’s event. The highlight of this event was the firework show which was real emotional, the sky was lit while Lil Snupe’s song “ NODODY” ft Meek Mill played. When God is in charge the enemy cannot succeed.
Monday, June 20th will be the 9th year since Addarren Ross transitioned. The celebration of his birthday only last briefly being his was murdered only 7 days later. The reality is many lost Lil Snupe while his family deals with losing Addarren. The legacy of Lil Snupe will forever continue worldwide. Farewell Jonesboro. #LongLiveSnupe
