Lil Peep, the flourishing emo rapper who died last week at age 21, had a lot to say in a short amount of time. In a posthumous interview with MONTREALITY, recorded in April and released Tuesday, the MC spoke about his childhood hobbies, the rappers who influenced him and his advice for kids struggling with depression.
Before the angsty punk-rap hybrid dominated SoundCloud and Spotify, he paid his dues in the service industry as a teenager. “I was a kitchen bitch at a local seafood restaurant where I did a lot of really disgusting shit early in the morning,” Peep recalled. One day, the horrors of killing sea creatures got the best of him. “I’m a mass crab murderer. I cut the faces off of 300 crabs that day and I never went back,” he said, flashing a thumbs-up to the camera.
