New Artist Spotlight: Lil Peep (@lilpeep_shawty)
One of the things I love about writing on a platform such as this is the fact that I don’t have to cover all the shit that EVERY OTHER platform is covering. I can, will, and enjoy presenting all of you with new artists to dig into. I also love the fact that I don’t have to keep it within the realm of traditional hip-hop and “rappity rap”. It’s more fun that way. So I’m here to present one of the most infectious new artists post-Young Thug. Lil Peep was put on my radar via the homie Fried Vegetables a few months back. However as of late Peep’s new music has leveled up. His unique blend of alternative/emo/grunge rock mixed with braggadocios trap raps has put him in the forefront of a new, alternative and slightly depressed youth movement. Imagine what Kid Cudi would sound like if he was going through withdrawal from lean, it’d probably sound like this. I wouldn’t surprise me if this kid becomes an underground, cult legend just like Cudi too. I urge all of you to listen to “Gucci Mane” off of his latest release HELLBOY and tell me it doesn’t make you want to cry a little bit.
Salute to the homie Lil Peep. Hopefully he can come to New York one time and shut down one of these underground venues in Brooklyn or Manhattan. The goth kids, sad boys and lonely boys need something to look forward to.
