UPDATE: December 9, 2017 5:36 a.m. ET] A recent report obtained by TMZ has confirmed that Lil Peep’s death was caused predominantly by a Xanax and Fentanyl overdose. However, the presence of a number of other chemical substances, including cocaine, Tramadol, and various opiates has caused the medical examiner to label his death as “accidental.”
Disturbing news has emerged that Lil Peep has passed away at age 21. According to early reports, the rapper overdosed on Xanax and Fentanyl pills before his concert in Tuscon, Arizona on Wednesday night.
A Reddit user has compiled a timeline of the night’s events, claiming that Bexxey, one of Peep’s best friends, was seen outside the show venue in a state of shock. The likes of Lil Yachty, Post Malone, Father and Lil Pump have posted their condolences via Twitter.
Lil Peep, whose music blends rap with rock samples and features dark lyrical content, was active on Instagram just 15 hours before the incident.
