Rapper Lil’ Peep Has Tragically Died At Age 21

We’re devastated to announce that rapper and YouTuber, Lil’ Peep, has passed away.

The news broke this morning after reports came in that he was rushed to the hospital the night of November 15th for a suspected overdose.

Lil’ Peep, whose real name is Gustav Åhr, was just 21 years old and was so well received amongst other musicians and YouTubers, with many of them calling him the future of emo.

His untimely death has left everyone who knew him, as well as his fans, completely devastated and demanding a calling to action.

The rapper had always been vocal about his battle with depression and drug addiction, and because of the tragic ending that he came to, many are once again bringing up the conversation about the need to destigmatize mental illness as well as the need to stop romanticizing hard drug use.

While no official cause of death has been released, it is being suspected that the overdose was the cause of Xanax, with some thinking that it might have been laced.

Lil’ Peep’s girlfriend, Arzaylea Rodriguez, posted the above tribute to her boyfriend on her Instagram account, and it’s truly heartbreaking.

His tour was set to wrap up in just two days. Our thoughts are with all of his friends and family during this difficult time.
