Lil Peep's Death: Diplo, Post Malone, Pete Wentz & More React
Lil Peep’s flock of fans extended to the upper tiers of hip-hop, indie and EDM.
The young artist was hotly tipped for big things, and his debut full-length LP was well-received on its release in September. As news broke of his untimely loss at age 21, the music community reacted with shock and grief.
Peep “had so much more to do man he was constantly inspiring me. I dont feel good man,” tweeted DJ and producer Diplo. “Rockstar” rapper Post Malone was also touched by the young talent. “In the short time that i knew you, you were a great friend to me and a great person. your music changed the world and it'll never be the same. i love you bud. Forever,” he tweeted.
Beats 1 DJ Zane Lowe, Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and many others paid tribute to the budding talent.
