Lil Peep, who had recently released his debut album "Come Over When You're Sober (Part One)", has reportedly been found dead at the age of 21. The cause of death has not been officially released, but it's rumoured that he died due to an overdose. He was set to finish his US "Come Over When You're Sober" tour on November 16th.
The rapper - real name Gustav Åhr - was considered a trailblazer in the emo/rap subgenre, and belonged to the GothBoiClique collective.
He had openly struggled with addiction and mental illness. In the 24 hours proceeding his death, he posted Instagram pictures of himself taking Xanax and captioned one image "When I die You'll love me".
