It was five hours before showtime and Lil Peep was in the back of his tour bus, getting high with two young fans. They were smoking dabs, high-potency doses of concentrated weed that are vaporized, then inhaled. This was Tucson, Arizona, in November , and the afternoon heat hovered in the mids. In the back lounge, the AC was cranked, and Peep, wearing a black, studded vest and multicolored checkered pants, had folded his long, lean frame onto an upholstered seat. The shows had been going well — most dates sold out, with mobs of kids trying to get close to Peep. Peep idolized Kurt Cobain, and it was easy to imagine him turning into a Kurt-like figure himself: an achingly pretty, blithely self-destructive superstar that a generation of kids could look to and see their pain reflected back at them. In the two years since he began releasing music, Peep had scored a Top 40 album, walked as a runway model at Fashion Week in Milan and Paris, and collected close to 2 million followers on Instagram, where he posted photos and videos of himself drinking, smoking, getting tattoos and chopping up cocaine.

1. Who is Lil Peep?
Helping pioneer an emo revival style of rap and rock music, Lil Peep has been credited as the leading figure of the mid—late s emo music scene and came to be an inspiration to outcasts and youth subcultures. Soon after the tour, Lil Peep emigrated to London, England , where he recorded his debut studio album. Lil Peep had substance abuse issues due to his mental health conditions, including depression and bipolar disorder , which often influenced the thematic content of his music. The Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner certified the cause of death as an accidental overdose of fentanyl and Xanax.
On June 10, , Gus released one of his most beloved mixtapes — Crybaby. Four years later, we are proud to release Crybaby on all digital streaming platforms exactly the way Gus and his collaborators made it. I have learned from Peep fans that Gus was a powerful and influential lyricist and music artist.
