Rapper and visionary Lil Peep has passed away of a suspected drug overdose.
Born Gustav Ahr, the 21-year-old rising artist died on Wednesday night after he was found unresponsive on his tour bus, according to a spokesperson for the Tucson Police Department. His exact cause of death is still unknown, but an overdose of Xanax reportedly laced with fentanyl is likely.
Artists have began to pay their respects, including Clams Casino, Pete Wentz, Post Malone, Lil Pump and many more.
