Gustav Elijah Åhr, known professionally as Lil Peep, was an American rapper, singer, songwriter and model. He was a member of the emo rap collective GothBoiClique. Helping pioneer an emo revival style of rap and rock music, Lil Peep has been credited as the leading figure of the mid–late 2010s emo music scene and came to be known as a poster child of Generation Z angst, as well as an inspiration to outcasts and youth subcultures. Born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and raised on Long Island, New York, Lil Peep started releasing music on SoundCloud in 2014, using the pseudonym Lil Peep because his mother had called him "Peep" since he was a child. He soon became popular on the platform for his collaborations with Lil Tracy and his several mixtapes, Lil Peep; Part One, Live Forever, Crybaby and Hellboy. Lil Peep's debut album Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 1 peaked at number 38 on the Billboard 200.
