New York rapper Lil Peep was found dead on his tour bus this past Wednesday in Arizona. The star's lyrics were often laced with references to drug abuse and mental health issues which he showcased on social media, often posting pictures of drugs.
Lil Peep was well loved by his peers in the music industry, with artists like Post Malone, Marshmello and Diplo sharing their sentiments and condolences.

Lil Peep was romantically tied to Bella Thorne back in September. Bella took to her Instagram story and Twitter to express her condolences.
Peep you deserved more out of life. Life didn't do your greatness justice— bella thorne (@bellathorne) November 16, 2017
"I just wanted to say to anyone 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 fucking great as a person," Bella admitted in a solum Instagram story.
Lil Peep's real name was Gustav Ahr. He had just released his debut album, "Come Over When You're Sober (Part One)" in August. Aha was a promising talent in the music industry who's presence and sound will surely be missed by many. RIP.
