Peep (born Gustav Ahr) passed away at the age of 21 in Nov. 2017. However, his memory has continued to live on since his passing from an emotional memorial service (where it was revealed Peep’s music would continue to be released) to a posthumous video for “Save That Shit” this past December.
Womack says she intents to continue to release the music and art that Peep had planned to do himself in 2018. Following the plans, a number of new songs featuring the rapper are coming out.
“Peep brought an excitement to music that was unparalleled to anybody I’ve ever met,” Marshmello said of his collaboration with Peep.
A few days after “Spotlight,” Peep’s “Got Em Like” with Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa was released. The track appears on Juicy J’s new 21-track mixtape #shutdafukup.
The ILoveMakonnen-helmed “Falling Down,” a posthumous collab with Peep and XXXTentacion, was released in August. Another version of the track, “Sunlight On Your Skin” with ILoveMakonnen was released in September.

Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2 will be released November 9. It’s just what we all would have expected from Gus. Thanks to @smokeasac for pouring his heart and soul into it for all of these months. Gus’ art is an essential part of the album packaging–it is a pleasure to see a range of Gus’s colorful, witty drawings in the vinyl and other physical versions. I think the vinyl record itself is absolutely beautiful. It is designed and crafted with care. More information will be posted about all of that, so stay tuned. Also, I am excited to say that Gus’s Cry Alone video is now officially released. In my excitement to upload it I gave you all a sneak preview last night. Love, Liza PS Go Peep!
The story of “Cry Alone”
The music video for “Cry Alone” for was directed by Max Beck and produced by Mezzy.
“Peep and I shot Cry Alone back in May 2017,” Beck shares, explaining the track was originally supposed to be on COWYS1. “It was around 1 a.m. when I saw Peep on Twitter asking if someone could bring him McDonalds in Berkeley.”
“I texted him asking what he was doing in town (I was living in the Bay Area at the time) and he told me he had just finished his show in San Francisco, but that I should come to his hotel and maybe take some photos if I was down,” the director shares, explaining how the music video came together.
“Ever since I met him, we talked about shooting various videos, but nothing ever came into fruition, so I suggested we shoot a music video that night. He said it was perfect timing because he’d just recorded a bunch of new music and that we’d pick a song when I got there,” Beck continues. “After listening to a few different songs and discussing ideas we chose ‘Cry Alone.’ ‘It just feels right’, he said. ‘It’s the only song that fits the energy of the night’.”
