Following the tragic death of Lil Peep that sent shivers through the hip-hop world, the rapper's mother, Liza Womack, has released a posthumous video for the song "Save That Shit."
On November 16, Lil Peep (real name Gustav Åhr), a 21-year-old rising emo-trap star from Los Island, passed away following a drug overdose involving a combination of Fentanyl and Xanax. The shocking news sent waves across the music industry and garnered many tributes from fans and colleagues alike.
The clip released by Womack is for one of Peep's songs that appeared on his album Come Over When You're Sober. In a statement to Metro, Lil Peep's mom stated:
"It’s been a hard time for all of us who loved Gus and we are going through the process of coming to terms with our loss.
Peep would have wanted his collaborators to move forward with his plan for the release of music and visuals in 2018 as he had originally intended. So today, we are starting that process by releasing the video for 'Save That Shit.'"
According to many, "Save That Shit" perfectly illustrates the rapper's unique musical universe and is the best track of the whole album. The video features BTS shots of Peep and his performances interspersed with a cinematic story of the rapper texting his sweetheart.
