The news arrives nearly one month after Lil Peep was found dead on a tour bus in Tuscon, Arizona, where he was scheduled to perform. He was 21.
In the wake of his death, a number of hip-hop figures have spoken out about rampant drug use within the genre. Wiz Khalifa told Complex he has encouraged his friends to stop consuming lean; Lil Uzi Vert announced he was giving up drugs; and Vic Mensa called out rappers who glorify drug use in an effort to sell records.
"To be honest, it’s like, on one hand I almost don’t even feel that I have a right to chastise anybody because I’ve fucking done it […] I regret it," Mensa told Billboard. "I don’t rap about it anymore, but I have some lines about taking Xanax. I just think that we’re in such a dangerous place now because it’s been normalized and the drug abuse has been reduced to like a marketing tactic."
