They wrote in more detail about his struggle with drug use and suicidal thoughts dating back to his teenage years. However, through speaking about the difficult parts of his life, he was able to better connect with his fans going through the same struggles.

“They tell me that it saved their lives,” he tells The New York Times about his music. “They say that I stopped them from committing suicide, which is a beautiful thing.

“It’s great for me to hear. It helps. It boosts me, because music saved my life as well.”

UPDATE: Nov. 16 @ 7:55 a.m. ET: According to The Guardian, Lil Peep’s manager Adam Grandmaison confirmed the rapper was taken to hospital following an overdose.

Lil Peep's manager Chase Ortega also reportedly confirmed the news, tweeting, “I’ve been expecting this call for a year. Mother fuck.”

Sarah Stennett, CEO of First Access Entertainment, who worked with Lil Peep last year, released the following statement regarding his death:

I am shocked and heartbroken. I do not believe Peep wanted to die, this is so tragic. He had big goals and dreams for the future which he had shared with me, his team, his family and his friends. He was highly intelligent, hugely creative, massively charismatic, gentle and charming. He had huge ambition and his career was flourishing.

I have spoken to his mother and she asked me to convey that she is very, very proud of him and everything he was able to achieve in his short life. She is truly grateful to the fans and the people who have supported and loved him.
