Rapper Lil Peep dead at age 21


The rapper Lil Peep has passed away at age 21. The rumored cause of death was a drug overdose.

Lil Peep, real name Gustav Ahr, rose up through SoundCloud, riding on songs about drugs and suicide, and presenting a colorfully tattooed persona. A January Pitchfork feature called him “the fresh-faced avatar of post-emo angst that’s not quite rap or rock.” In that interview, Lil Peep also opened up about his struggle with depression.

His manager, Mikey Cortez, posted to Instagram Wednesday night to seemingly confirm Lil Peep’s death. Just one day ago, he posted about trying to find happiness, stating, “Maybe I won’t die young and I’ll be happy?” In a video posted Nov. 14, he says he took six Xanax, and that he’s “good, I’m not sick.”
