Lil Peep, born Gustav Åhr saw fast success with his recently released record, Come Over When You’re Sober, receiving praise as “the future of emo” with a twist in rap and hip-hop beats.
Sarah Stennett, CEO of First Access Entertainment, who partnered with Peep in early 2016, released a statement about his 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.” No official cause of death has been announced.
Rest in peace to another soul, gone too soon.
