Lil Peep cause of death reveals that he was overdosed on Xanax and fentanyl.
The rising SoundCloud rapper died on November 15th in Tucson Arizona while in the city for a concert. According to the police report, he was discovered on his tour bus unresponsive. Initial reports alleged that he took some fake Xanax before passing out and that might have contributed to his death. TMZ revealed some excerpts from the Pima County Medical Examiner showing that he died from a “combined toxic effects of fentanyl and alprazolam.” The latter is the generic form of Xanax which is used to treat anxiety.
While those were the two main drug found in his system, the medical examiner detected a bunch of other drugs including cocaine, marijuana, and Tramadol, which is a pain killer, were all detected in his blood test. Additionally, his urine was tested positive for Oxymorphone, Hydromorphone (Dilaudid), Hydrocodone, and Oxycodone, along with all the drugs previously mentioned. On top of that, he was tested positive for alcohol.
His death was ruled accidental by the medical examiner. Lil Peep was age 21 at the time of his death. The rapper’s sudden passing triggered a debate about drug addiction among celebrities, particularly young rapper’s who often rap about sipping lean and taking pills.
Lil Peep, born Gustav Åhr, is best known for his single “Benz Truck.” He has been known to mix elements of rock with rap music to create his signature sound. Since breaking onto the scene in 2015, he has released three mixtapes and in August of this year he released his debut album, Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 1. He was on tour promoting the album at the time of his death. A memorial service was recently held in Long Beach, New York, where he is from.

He has been granted permission to travel almost a dozen times already and has to go through a rigorous drug testing program while on tour. The rapper pays for the counselor’s travel expense and food.

Big Sean has finally responded to Kendrick Lamar’s diss record “The Heart Part 4.” The G.O.O.D. Music rapper delivered his joint album with Metro Boomin, Double or Nothing, on Friday. The album has received mixed reviews among hip hop fans, but perhaps one of the biggest takeaways on the project is Big Sean jab at Kendrick Lamar. K-Dot unleashed a lyrical firestorm against BS in March of this year where he called him his son and a punk ass.
“”My fans can’t wait for me to son your punk ass and crush your whole lil sh*t, I’ll Big Pun your punk ass you a scared lil b*tch, Tip-toeing around my name n***a you lame,” the Compton rapper raps. At the time of its released, the song surprised a lot of hip hop fans who wasn’t sure who he was referring to. In case your still among those who are still in doubt, now you know for sure that K-Dot went directly after Sean Don ripping him while threatening to take down his career.
On the album, Double or Nothing, Big Sean has a song “Big Bidness” featuring 2 Chainz where he finally responded to Kendrick Lamar. “Nobody sonning me, If am a sun, I’m the one you look up to F**k you,” Sean raps. Sean Don previously took a jab at the “HUMBLE” rapper on DJ Khaled’s single “Holy Key” giving fans a hint of his feelings towards his rival.
Double or Nothing is out now and you can stream it on Apple Music and Spotify. The album features some big names including Travis Scott, 21 Savage, Young Thug, and Swae Lee. While the vast majority of his fans have the project the thumbs up, Big Sean has been getting roasted on Twitter for a few lines that some folks thinks are either unacceptible or corny.
Vybz Kartel debuts his new single “Miss Your Call (Euphoria Remix).”
The original version of the single was released earlier this year as a bit of a dedication to his baby mama “Tanesha “Shorty” Johnson. “Wa a gwaan Shorty, Am so sorry, say mi miss your call, And I promise you, that I’ll always be there, I don’t want to miss a thing, I can’t get enough of your life,” Kartel sings over a techno beat produced by South Trade Records and High Stakes Records.
Vybz Kartel already has his fans on high alert for five new singles coming this month, but it’s a preview of his new single “One Box” that is stirring up some controversies. Some dancehall fans think that the single is promoting domestic violence against women. But it’s still too early to make a solid judgment with only a short snippet of the song released. The full version of the song will be released in January.
Kartel, who is currently in prison for murder, is awaiting his appeal trial in July next year, after being pushed back from February. The dancehall star maintained his innocence and is confident that the appeal court will vindicate him.
