Gustav Åhr, known as Lil Peep, died at the age of 21.
The 21 year old rapper and YouTube star reportedly died due to a possible drug overdose.
The news was announced by Chase Oretega, Lil Peep’s manager, on social media on Wednesday night. Fans and artists such as Pete Wentz, Marshmello, Rich Chigga and Diplo took to social media to share their condolences.
The young New York-based artist had recently just dropped a full-length album in the summer and had a promising career ahead of him.
According to this reddit post, Lil Peep was on his tour bus in Tuscon where he was presumably pronounced dead.
A fan managed to capture Bexey’s Instagram story showing Lil Peep in his tour bus which was eerily haunting to watch. Many commented on the obviousness of his overdosed state and how someone should have done something sooner.
The entire music community is in shock. F21 expresses their deepest condolences and urges everyone to look out for each other.
Rest in peace, Lil Peep.
