Lil Peep’s New Album Was Just Released, A Year After His Death
Come Over When You’re Sober Pt. 2 features songs with XXXTentacion and ILoveMakonnen.
Lil Peep is gone but his art remains. While we just found out that Terrence Malik will make a documentary about him, the rapper's first posthumous album just got released, almost exactly a year after he died of an anxiolytics overdose. He was 21-year-old.
The 13 tracks album called Come Over When You’re Sober Pt. 2 features songs with XXXTentacion and ILoveMakonnen. As the name implied, it follows Come Over When You’re Sober Pt. 1, Gustav "Gus" Elijah Åhr's first album, released in August 2017.
Steered by his mother and longtime producer, this project reflects the particular atmosphere of the artist, who was considered as the newest face of emo-rap. "The first posthumous album from Lil Peep stands as an act of tribute and preservation for an artist whose legacy is still very fragile," wrote Pitchfork, which rated it a 7,2.
