Lil Peep, an American rapper and songwriter was set to bring a new musical genre mixing punk, emo and rap to the mainstream before he died of a drug overdose at just 21 years old.
This is for those grieving and those seeking to understand the phenomenon of Lil Peep. It’s a melancholic tale of the incessant demand of 24/7/365 internet celebrity. The warning signs were clear, even before he posts on Instagram that he’s crumbling under the strain of being “everybody’s everything.”
Immediately after the film, Ireland’s foremost hip hop podcast hosts Mabfield will discuss the documentary and the state of drug culture in modern music.

This documentary never forgets that there was a human being beneath the floppy dyed bangs and “Crybaby” facial ink.
