The Los Angeles native took to Instagram on Friday to share a snippet of a forthcoming song, which features X and Peep. Makonnen wrote, “I am honoured to have co-written this song that X was inspired to be a part of, shortly before he died. Peep and I always believed that music heals and brings people together in a way nothing else can. When I heard X’s recording, talking about my dear friend Peep I could not wait any longer to share this. @lilpeep @xxxtentacion coming ASAP!!!!”
In the video, as the music plays, a man’s voice appears. Based on Makonnen’s caption—and based on tweets by rapper Fat Nick—it sounds like it could be X talking about a conversation Nick had with Peep before Peep died. Still, it isn’t entirely clear.
“His name will live, bro,” the man says. “If I would have known he was so cool, I would have fucked with him sooner. It’s unfortunate ‘cause it’s like yo when people die, that’s when you like, you know? Your remorse kind of makes you check them out. It was like yo, if I would have watched the interview sooner, bro, we were so alike. And like it kind of almost bothers me cause like, I was talking to Nick—Nick told me like, ‘Yo, the last time before he died, when he was down here bro, he was asking about you bro.’ And that to me was like, ‘Yo are you serious?’ ‘Yeah, he was asking like how are you? What type of person you are. Do you stay down here?’ Are you serious? Yeah. So that to me was like hella like weird. It’s divine to me.”
“You guys will talk to each other someday,” the other voice in the video responds.
A release date for the collaboration has yet to be revealed.
