Li’l Peep stormed into the American popular culture scene, but unfortunately just as soon as he did so, he left it. Li’l Peep is best known as a musician, who started a grassroots movement by publishing music he made himself onto SoundCloud and YouTube. He quickly rose to prominence and was signed to First Access and Warner Music Sweden, where he would go on to publish one full album and several singles.
Li’l Peep enjoyed a quiet upbringing. He would drop out of high school and pursue online courses, although this never culminated in a degree. When he was taking classes, he began to publish his music and at the age of 17, would move to Los Angeles and jumpstart his career. In his short career which began in 2015, he generated more than 10 million views on his videos. Unfortunately, Li’l Peep took his own life by fentanyl overdose, which meant an abrupt end to his music career. However, he had been involved in numerous projects, which will come to light sometime in 2018 and celebrate Peep.
