Lil Peep, the raising American singer, rapper and YouTube celebrity whose first full-length album released some months back, has died.
He was raised in New York and was just 21 years old. He was born on Long Island and his real name was Gustav Åhr.
Though there is no reason specified which caused the death of Lil Peep, it is suspected that this well may be a case of overdose.
Peep’s manager Chase Ortega revealed the story “I’ve been expecting this call for a year. Mother fuck,” he posted on Twitter.
Sarah Stennett, CEO of First Access Entertainment, who collaborated with Peep in early 2016, delivered a remark about his unfortunate death.
“I am shocked and heartbroken,” Stennett wrote.”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.”
Lil Peep had a successful future in front of him. His stardom had been on an accelerator since 2015 because of a set of Soundcloud records, EPs, and mixtapes, and he enjoyed huge traffic by his YouTube channel where his videos to “Awful Things,” “Benz Truck,” “The Brightside” and others measured up various millions of views. As the rumors created, Peep signed with agent Cara Lewis and excited stories developed in Fader, Noisey, and Pitchfork, which announced him as “the future of emo”. In an extensive three-part profile, Medium inscribed, “it’s obvious Peep is going to blow up.”
The army of his fans was huge and it was a growing one. The fans looked up to him for refreshing and inspiration soundtracks in which he would elucidate his journey and his struggles with heartbreak, depression, drug use, and his sexuality.
