Lil Peep’s ‘Come Over When You’re Sober’ Album Enters Billboard 200 for First Time After His Death
Lil Peep's music is getting new life after his death. His debut album, Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 1, has entered the Billboard 200 for the first time after his passing, coming in at No. 168.
Fans jamming his music after his death, and curious listeners tuning into the rapper after hearing reports that he died, have surely culminated to boost the album's status. The offering dropped back in August and features seven tracks, including "Awful Things."
People are still reeling from Peep's untimely passing, which happened in Tucson, Ariz., on Nov. 15. The Long Island, N.Y., rapper is believed to have overdosed on prescription pills on his tour bus, but his family believes his death might have been an accident.
“We [the family] have heard there was some sort of substance he did not expect to be involved in the substance he was taking,” said Karl Ahr, Peep's brother. “He thought he could take what he did, but he had been given something and he didn’t realize what it was.”
He added, “It was an accident, it really was an accident. He was super happy with where he was in life.”
The mind state the grunge rapper was in leading up to his death is up for debate, but this is clearly a case of a talent gone too soon. Peep even had plans of getting into acting and fashion before he died.
