Gustav Elijah Åhr (November 1, 1996 – November 15, 2017), known professionally as Lil Peep (often stylized as LiL PEEP), was an American singer, rapper, songwriter and model.
Born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and raised in Long Island, New York, Lil Peep started releasing music on SoundCloud in 2014. He used the pseudonym 'Lil Peep' because his mother had called him 'Peep' since he was a child. Lil Peep soon became popular on SoundCloud after releasing several mixtapes, and gained a cult-like following. He released his debut album, Come Over When You're Sober, on August 15, 2017. Following his death, Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 1 entered the Billboard 200 at No. 168 and in the following week peaked at No. 38. Lil Peep earned his highest-charting single on the Billboard 200 in October 2018 with "Falling Down", featuring XXXTentacion, which peaked at 13th. The single was certified "Gold" by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on November 8, 2018, making it Lil Peep's first gold certification. Lil Peep's second studio album, Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 2, was released on November 9, 2018.
