New York-raised emo/hip-hop artist, Lil Peep, passed away at the age of 21 on Wednesday (Nov. 15). Although Peep’s name was still bubbling in the industry, his presence was felt by his fans and some of music’s finest.
The cause of his death has yet to be publicized or confirmed, though British broadsheet The Guardian suspects the rising artist – born Gustav Åhr – died of a possible overdose. Peep’s manager, Chase Ortega, broke the news, tweeting, “I’ve been expecting this call for a year. Mother f**k.”

Sippin lean & poppin pills isn’t the wave. There’s a new generation of young “rappers” that have been perpetuating this lifestyle among the younger generation. I hope they learn a valuable lesson from what happened to Lil Peep. Life’s more valuable than any temporary fix. RIP🙏🏼

I’ve never heard any of Lil Peep’s music but these dudes losing themselves to drugs is depressing I’ll be happy when the culture stops glorifying drug addictions
