Emerging rapper and YouTube personality Lil Peep has died at the age of 21.
Although it was reported that the musician was taken to the hospital following an overdose, an official cause of death has not been released.
The rapper came out as bisexual on Twitter in August and released his debut album, Come Over When You’re Sober, the following month.
Lil Peep, who spoke openly about his struggles with depression and substance abuse in his lyrics, posted a startling video to Instagram hours before his death in which he explains he had “six Xanax, and now it’s lit.” He then assured his fans that “I’m good, I’m not sick.”
The rapper received an outpouring of condolences from celebrities and musicians after the news broke, including a tweet from his ex, Bella Thorne.
Peep you deserved more out of life. Life didn't do your greatness justice
