Lil Peep Dies at 21

Rapper Lil Peep who came out as bisexual earlier this year has died

The rising 21-year-old singer and rapper died at the age of 21, as reported by Billboard early on Thursday morning (November 16). At a recent concert in Tuscon, he has reportedly died due to overdose.

Close friend and collaborator Mikey Cortez was the first to reveal the news, posting a photo on instagram and writing, "I'm completely heart broken and lost right now. Everyone will miss you man".

His manager Chase Ortega tweeted the sad news, saying he'd been expecting to hear it for a long time. "Please someone tell me this isn't real".


Lil Peep released his debut album 'Come Over When You're Sober (Part One)' this September following widespread critical interest, with Pitchfork dubbing him "the future of emo" back in January.

The rapper's drug-infused anthems were a glimpse into his lifestyle, as was his social media accounts, which often displayed him drinking and dabbling into prescription drugs.

Lil Peep's name is now trending on Twitter, with many users (including well-known celebs and Hip-Hop artists) are sharing their condolences and paying tribute to the emerging rapper.
