Lil Peep, "Runaway"

Shortly before his passing, Lil Peep picked up and moved from Los Angeles to London. Peep's estate demonstrates that journey through the New York native's latest visual for "Runaway," which was released Thursday morning (Nov. 1). The Smokeasac-produced track serves as the second single off Peep's anticipated posthumous Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 2 album.

The clip is directed by Peep's mother, Liza Womack, in collaboration with Steve Martens. "For my passionate, hard-working, and talented son, Gus. And for his alter ego, Lil Peep," she wrote in dedication to her son at the onset of the video. The flick takes viewers on a journey told through old videos and handwritten illustrations from Peep detailing his childhood. 

The "Crybaby" artist harps on how his drug use medicates the fact he continued to avoid the issues popping up in life. "I run away from my problems/ I do the drugs when I want 'em/ I ran away from my momma/ Don't bother me with no drama/ Now I'm looking for a ghost girl/ I ain't never gonna find her," he candidly raps.

According to The New York Times, a documentary surrounding Lil Peep's life is on the way. The film will also reportedly be executive produced by Terrence Malick, who is a close friend of the Womack family. Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 2 is set to release next Friday (Nov. 9). Thursday (Nov. 1) would have marked Peep's 22nd birthday.
