    Who Is Lil Peep?

    Who would have guessed the future of emo would be so short-lived? Gustav Elijah Åhr AKA Lil Peep died on November 15, 2017, but his music is still relocatable to a lot of people.

    Lil Peep was an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and model who revived the emo style rap and rock-rap. Gustav uploaded music in SoundCloud with a pseudonym Lil Peep; he chose the rap name because his mother had called him "Peep" when he was a child.

    Why Is Lil Peep Famous?

    Lil Peep was a very likable figure, more like Grunz music's pioneer Kurt Cobain for Emo rap. His rap song Save That Shit has over 230 million views on YouTube.

    He is famous for his oddly relocatable, yet massively depressing emo-rap songs. He actually became a massive independent star after he released Mall Music in 2015 via SoundCloud and Apple music.

    Oddly enough, he usually talked and sang about depression, and the day he died, he was seen live for five instances telling his fans that he did mushrooms and various drugs. Strangely, the same day Peep on one of his videos had quoted:

    "When I die, you'll love me."

    -Lil Peep

    To make things scarier, Lil Peep's friend Bexey Swan recorded Lil Peep's death because he thought that Peep was asleep; the video itself was more than enough to make Peep's death super controversial.

    Lil Peep is also famous for his last album Everybody's Everything, which was released on 15th November 2019 after his death.

    As a matter of fact, Lil Peep was a SoundCloud rapper since 2014, using and had a very hardcore fan base after several of his mix-tapes were released.

    He started getting famous to non-hardcore-emo-rap communities after he released his mix-tape songs collection Hellboy in 2016.

    Further, after he released an actual album Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 1 in 2017, Lil Peep became the god of modern-day music lovers, his album peaked at No. 38 on the Billboard 200.

    Lil Peep and XXXTentacion (both deceased) did a song Falling Down, which picked 13th spot on Billboard Hot 100 in October 2018.

    Lil Peep the did the squeal of Come Over When You're Sober (Part 2), which picked up at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, making it his first US top 10 albums.

    Lil Peep was a young adult of only 21 when he died; as a matter of fact, he had just celebrated his 21 birthday a week before he sadly died. As per Peep himself, he was a productive junkie. He unfortunately, was a frequent user of drugs and had struggled with mental health issues for a long time.

    After his death, Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner proved that accidental overdose of fentanyl and Xanax caused Lil Peep's death.

    Åhr then got his first face tattoo at the age of 14; his first face tatt was a broken heart below his left eye.

    Even his music suggests he was heartbroken and couldn't live in Long Island, so he moved to Los Angeles and started putting music out under a pseudonym Lil Peep. He also said that seeing the broken heart on his face motivated him to make music.
