Lil Peep (born Gustav Elijah Åhr; November 1, 1996-November 15, 2017) was a Los Angeles rapper who mashed Hip-Hop beats with Emo Music and Alternative Rock. A member of the Gothboiclique, a group of similar-minded artists, he was arguably the group's most popular member.

Despite the aforementioned odd blend of genres, he enjoyed quite a bit of success among both hip hop and rock fans, and was perhaps the most successful artist of the "emo-trap" subgenre. He broke out into the mainstream with his Hellboy mixtape and amassed a large cult following, which lead to the release of his first studio album, Come Over When You're Sober, Pt 1.

Tragically, Peep passed away from an accidental overdose at the young age of 21. Tributes poured in from his friends and family. Despite his brief career, he made quite an impression on the scene and was an inspiration to many. Columbia Records acquired his catalog in March 2018.

His work can be found on Soundcloud, as well as Spotify.
