Gustav Elijah hr, better known by his stage name Lil Peep, was a Swedish-American rapper, singer, and songwriter who was a part of the GothBoiClique emo rap group from November 1, 1996, to November 15, 2017.
Lil Peep is credited with being a key figure in the mid-late 2010s emo rap scene and with helping to pioneer an emo revival style of rap and rock music. He also became an inspiration for outcasts and youth subcultures.
Lil Peep Cause of Death Revealed
The emo rapper, whose real name was Gustav hr, passed away on November 15 of last month from what was initially thought to be a drug overdose, though it was stated that a conclusive cause of death couldn’t be determined until all the toxicology results were released. He was 21.
The Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner has now determined that Peep’s death was caused by an overdose of fentanyl and Xanax. According to the medical examiner’s office, the “manner of death” was “accidental.”
Peep allegedly “tested positive for tranquilizers and benzodiazepines, including tramadol and benzodiazepines, as well as cocaine and marijuana.” He had a “negative alcohol test.”
It had previously been reported that police were looking into whether the powerful opioid drug fentanyl played a role in Peep’s death. It’s the same drug that was suspected of being the cause of Prince’s death.

Gustav hr, better known as Lil Peep, was on his way to becoming an emo-breakout rap star when he died in 2017. He was 21 years old at the time. The cause of death in Tucson, Arizona, where Lil Peep died before a scheduled tour stop in support of his debut album, Come Over When You’re Sober (Part One), was ruled to be a drug overdose of the prescription drugs fentanyl and Xanax.
Since then, Lil Peep’s fame has grown. Come Over When You’re Sober Pt. 2 was released as a posthumous album last year. Everybody’s Everything, a high-profile documentary about his life, is set to be released on November 15, the second anniversary of the rapper’s death.
Legal experts say that a lawsuit over who is to blame for Lil Peep’s fatal overdose could have far-reaching consequences. According to court documents, Liza Womack, Lil Peep’s mother and the executor of his estate, sued the late rapper’s management on October 7.
Although Lil Peep was “stressed, overwhelmed, burnt out, exhausted, and physically unwell,” according to the 26-page complaint obtained by Pitchfork, his managers pushed him “onto the stage after stage in the city after city, plying and propping [Lil Peep] up” with various substances.
