Lil' Peep (Wikicommons)
In the "Spotlight" again. Disciples gather to raise a cup to Lil' Peep.
A rising star, this rapper/singer—described by Pitchfork as "The future of emo"—helped pioneer emo-rap. Peep's
life took a tragic change of direction in Nov 2017 when he overdosed on fentanyl and Xanax on a tour bus prior to a performance at The Rock in Tucson. The "emo-trap heartthrob" was just 21. Recently, his mother filed a lawsuit against the agency/label that handled Peep's career for negligence, breach of contract and wrongful death alleging that her son was pushed to perform and plied with drugs.
