Rapper Lil Peep Dead At 21 After Posting Haunting Instagram
21-year-old rapper, Lil Peep has been pronounced dead today, just hours after posting a haunting message to his Instagram account.
The rapper, a New York-based hip hop artist who was well documented as a fan of dabbling with pills and drugs, is reported to have died of an overdose, though that is not confirmed. Hauntingly, the rapper died just 21 hours after sharing a haunting instagram post, which read, ‘When I die, you’ll love me.’
His ex-partner, actress Bella Thorne, took to social media to post an emotional instagram story as she spoke of his ‘greatness’ and her sadness over his sudden death. Talking to the camera, a clearly emotional Bella said: “I just wanted to say anybody out there who’s a Lil Peep fan, you guys know how talented he was, you guys know how great he was. Well he was even more f***ing great as a person.”
Posts on his Instagram page show he was fighting demons in his final hours. He shared a video of himself smoking with a caption saying: “I’m getting so tired of this.”
“I just wana [sic] be everybody’s everything I want too much from people,” he said. “But then I don’t want anything from them at the same time u feel me I don’t let people help me but I need help but not when I have my pills but that’s temporary.
“One day maybe I won’t die young and I’ll be happy? What is happy I always have happiness for like 10 seconds and then it’s gone. I’m getting so tired of this.”
