Erykah Badu thinks Lil Peep’s death is more complicated than it seems — it’s not just a cautionary tale about addiction, it’s also a warning about mental illness issues for young people in America. As we first reported, police strongly…
As previously reported, Lil Peep is dead at the young age of 21.
The popular YouTube star and burgeoning emo artist was found dead on Wednesday night, with initial reports linking his passing to an overdose of drugs.
Specifically, one outlet claimed that Lil Peep took some kind of fake Xanax that was laced with Fentanyl, a powerful opioid.
But no cause of death has actually been confirmed.
TMZ, however, has shared a few disturbing new details about the rapper’s death.
FIRST, the celebrity gossip website writes that Lil Peep’s body was discovered on his tour bus outside a club in Tucson, Arizona, where the artist was scheduled to perform.
SECOND, per law enforcements sources, TMZ says that Peep’s manager is the one who found his body, having gone to check on his client around 9:40 p.m.
There was apparently drug paraphernalia strewn all around him, along with evidence of a possible overdose, which was likely linked to Xanax, as mentioned above.
Is it possible Lil Peep committed suicide?
We hate to speculate on such a delicate topic.
We just know that Peep had shared a photo earlier in the day on Instagram with what appeared to be prescription pills on his tongue.
He wrote this as a caption:
Lil Peep had released his first album just three months ago.
Sarah Stennett, the CEO of First Access Entertainment – which partnered with Lil Peep last year – said in a statement:
“I am shocked and heartbroken. I do not believe Peep wanted to die, this is so tragic.
“He had huge ambition and his career was flourishing…
“I have spoken to his mother and she asked me to convey that she is very, very proud of him and everything he was able to achieve in his short life.”
Lil Peep, whose real name is Gustav Åhr, often spoke about his drug use in in his song lyrics.
“I suffer from depression and some days I wake up and I’m like, ‘F-ck, I wish I didn’t wake up,’” Peep told Pitchfork in an interview published in January.
“I don’t express that side of myself on social media. That’s the side of myself that I express through music. That’s my channel for letting all that sh-t out.”
The young artist was romantically linked to Bella Thorne as recently as September.
“Peep you deserved more out of life. Life didn’t do your greatness justice,” wrote the actress on Twitter in the wake of this sad news.
Thorne also shared a pair of videos to Instagram stories, emotionally reacting to Peep’s death in each.
“I just wanted to say anybody out there who is a Lil Peep fan, you guys know how talented he was, you guys know how great he was,” she said.
“Well he was even more f-cking great as a person.”
Added DJ Marshmello, who had toured with Peep this year:
Peep was the nicest person. hanging out with him, talking to him about music, the song ideas we were going to do together and touring was so amazing. Everyone will miss you man.
We send our condolences to everyone who knew and cared about Lil Peep.
May he rest in peace.

Well, it’s November, which means the season of familial discord is fast approaching.
This year has offered plenty of potential topics of conversation that are sure to trigger a third coronary event for your Uncle Lou.
So you probably don’t need any help infuriating your more conservative relatives, but just in case you need some extra help, Snoop D-O-double-G is here to lend a hand:
That’s the cover of Snoop’s forthcoming album Make America Crip Again.
As you can see, the photo isn’t exactly subtle in its anti-Trump sentiment.
Paying homage to Ice Cube’s 1991 album Death Certificate, Snoop is seen sipping from a Crip-blue Solo cup glaring down at the corpse of the Donald.
It’s not the rapper’s first political controversy this year, as back in March, a video in which Snoop pretends to assassinate Trump made major waves on social media.
Needless to say, lots of folks on Twitter have been thoroughly butthurt by Snoop’s brand of satire, but most of them have Pepe the Frog avatars, and thus, their opinions aren’t to be taken seriously.
“Snoop Dogg’s career is running on fumes, hence the need to jump on the refuge of the talentless – the Trump Derangement Syndrome bandwagon,” one snowflake said about the platinum-selling music legend who currently hosts two television shows.
“HOW DOES THIS PRICK get away with this crap?” tweeted a guy who we probably don’t need to tell you has a photo of a very angry-looking bald eagle as his profile pic.
For his part, Snoop has yet to sound off on the controversy.
And thankfully, against all odds, the president hasn’t tweeted about either.
Of course, Trump has a lot on his plate these days, so he might be a bit distracted at the moment.
Hey, there’s a fun game!
Test your friend’s prejudice levels by showing them photos of Snoop and Trump and asking them to guess which one is worried about going to prison because all his friends are getting indicted.
Lob that one at Uncle Lou over pumpkin pie, but make sure you’ve got a defibrillator handy!
Better yet, put your version of the poll on social media and enjoy a few mild strokes of your own.
After all, Twitter is basically what would happen if you let the kids sit at the grownup table and got them loaded on gin and it turned out the kids were super racist.

Last month, college student Eric Chase Bolling Jr. died suddenly at the age of 19.
The news came just weeks after the boy’s father, Eric Bolling, was suspended from Fox News for allegedly harassing his female colleagues.
In the immediate wake of the tragedy, several news outlets reported that the younger Bolling had committed suicide in response to his father’s humiliating scandal.
Early reports about Bolling Jr.’s cause of death seemed to confirm those reports, as authorities attributed his passing to multiple drug toxicity.
However, questions about Eric’s motive in ingesting the substances remained.
Was this a case of a son taking his own life in response to his father’s fall from grace?
Or is this yet another accidental overdose story–the kind we hear far too often these days?
We may never receive a definitive answer, but it seems that authorities who investigated the death of Eric Chase Bolling Jr. are now favoring the latter explanation.
The news that Eric’s overdose appears to have been accidental was shared by his father on Twitter yesterday:
“Just received some tragic news from Coroner in Colorado. Eric Chase’s passing has been ruled an accidental overdose that included opioids,” wrote Bolling Sr.
“Adrienne and I thank you for your continued prayers and support. We must fight against this national epidemic, too many innocent victims,” he added.
While multiple drugs were found in Eric Jr.’s system, it seems it was indeed the controversial prescription painkiller fentanyl that claimed his life.
According to the coroner’s report released this week, the official cause of Eric’s death was “accidental overdose.”
The report attributes his passing to the “presence of cocaine, cyclopropyl fentanyl, and fentanyl in decedent’s system.”
The news comes on the heels of the Trump administration’s declaration that the opioid crisis is now a national public health emergency.
According to a recent survey, drug overdoses are up nearly 700 percent since 1990, with opioids accounting for the majority of the 64,000 deaths recorded last year.
Our thoughts go out to Eric Bolling and his family during this incredibly difficult time.
