Lil Peep's death at the age of 21 came as a shock to the music community. Presumed an overdose, the musician's brother Oskar recently said the death was accidental: “He was super happy with where he was in life.” To celebrate the young artist's life, his family has announced a special memorial service for fans. You can read the details on that event here.
Peep was part of GothBoiClique, cofounded with Wicca Phase aka Adam McIlwee, the ex-singer of Tiger’s Jaw, creating their own hip-hop/emo subgenre that has prompted a massive movement in the music industry. With over 100 million streams to-date, including tracks like “Awful Things” and “The Brightside,” he solidified his standing in the genre-defying movement.
Videographer Wiggy shared a poignant tribute to Lil Peep, featuring a collection of candid footage showing Lil Peep performing, traveling and more.
