When Lil Peep died last month of an accidental overdose of fentanyl and Xanax, he left behind only a small collection of music and boundless unrealized potential. Peep only had a seven-song album (Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 1) and a smattering of singles to his name, but the 21-year-old rapper had big things planned for 2018: including a tour with his emo heroes Good Charlotte and plenty of new music.
One of Peep’s frequent collaborators already confirmed that Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2 exists and will come come out “when the time is right,” and Peep’s family approves. And earlier this week, Peep’s mother Liza Womack shared a statement with his first posthumous music video—for Sober, Pt. 1's “Save That Shit.” She promises to go forward with releasing all the music he’d completed, in addition to music videos he had planned for the new year (via MTV News):
“It’s been a hard time for all of us who loved Gus and we are going through the process of coming to terms with our loss. Peep would have wanted his collaborators to move forward with his plan for the release of music and visuals in 2018 as he had originally intended. So today, we are starting that process by releasing the video for ‘Save That Shit.’”
The “Save That Shit” video serves as a blueprint of sorts for how future Peep videos could look, weaving together a combination of archived footage of the rapper and segments featuring actors. It’s a tall order for the filmmakers involved, but hopefully we can expect more like it to come.
