New Lil Peep Song with Smokepurpp Surfaces Just Hours After His Death
"Think I’ma die no joke, take a couple Xans with the coke”
Long live Lil Peep!
Though the rapper died last night — a Xanax overdose was reportedly the cause — today (Nov. 16), a new Lil Peep song made its way online.
Entitled “Nothing,” it’s a collaboration between Peep and Florida-bred SoundCloud star Smokepurpp. Production credits thus far are unclear, but it’s said to have been produced by Southside and Metro Boomin; Sonny Digital also may have contributed.
“Nothing” is about intoxication, flexing and…. well, how pointless it all is. Drugs in the champagne. Cocaine on a weekday. Peep raps more than sings here, and Purpp raps more nimbly than you might expect — though it isn’t flashy, it’s a low-key banger.
“Think I’ma die no joke, take a couple Xans with the coke,” Peep spits. How prophetic.
It’s possible “Nothing” is part of the joint Peep/Purpp project which Smokepurpp talked about on stage before performing it last spring.
“Me and Peep got a tape dropping produced by Southside, TM88, Sonny Digital, Metro Boomin,” he said. “We made this song so fucked up, we don’t remember the lyrics, but we still about to mosh.”
It could also just be a loosie, as the two artists had collaborated before (like on the Willie G-produced “On a Bean”).
Before Peep died he talked about having a whole project finished with Makonnen, and was performing unreleased songs produced by Fish Narc.
Earlier today, Lil Tracy posted a song to SoundCloud credited to himself, Peep, and Diplo – “Ratchet Bitches Cocaina,” but it quickly disappeared from the internet.
These leaks are likely the first of what will ultimately be any number of unreleased Lil Peep records. Since his death is fresh, we’ll be looking forward to anything we can get from the budding star, whose life was tragically cut short before his talent could be fully realized by the music-loving masses.
