Gustav Elijah Åhr, or Gus, or Lil Peep was an American songwriter, singer, rapper, and model. He is credited largely in being one of the lead figures of bringing emo-rap into popularity in the late 2010's. He is really interesting to listen to because his genre that he pioneered is fairly fluid and you can see inspirations from all over music. I think the most interesting comparison that I've seen is that he was the Kurt Cobain of lo-fi rap, relating to a lot of his lyrical content and themes within his music. Lil Peep lived with mental health conditions like depression and bipolar disorder which had a profound influence on his music. A close friend said that he "wanted to give a voice to people that suffer from anxiety and depression, people who have been abused, bullied, and the people who were misunderstood like him. He had demons of his own and he faced those demons by creating music."
Unfortunately, due to his mental health, he had substance abuse issues which eventually lead to his death in Tuscon, Arizona before one of his concerts. Before his passing away, Lil Peep came to be an inspiration for outcasts and youth subcultures drawn together by the internet. He pioneered his own style of music, and cemented his legacy in an incredibly short amount of time.
