Rest In Peace, Lil Peep

Rest In Peace, Lil Peep

21 year old Soundcloud rapper overdoses on anti-anxiety medication.

Last night, rapper Lil Peep was found unresponsive on his tour bus right before a show in Tucson, Arizona. He had overdosed, likely on Xanax.

After his death, everyone on social media is beginning to dissect his cries for help or clues that could've predicted this that nobody noticed before he was gone. He was very open about drug abuse within his music, and he openly talked about depression in interviews.

Hours before Peep passed, he posted videos on Instagram of him popping Xanax and a photo with the caption "When I die You'll love me".

Addiction takes so many young souls too soon. Lil Peep was only 21 years old with a growing career and so much life ahead of him. It's important that we notice signs before it is too late and help our friends who may be struggling with mental illness or addiction.

Addiction and self-destruction are often glorified, and that is a toxic mindset. Peep's manager announced his death by saying he had been "expecting this call for a year."

If you expect somebody to overdose on drugs, that should tell you to reach out to that person and try to get them help before it happens instead of treating it as if it is inevitable.

If you watch somebody destroy themselves and don't try to help them, they may never receive that help.

It doesn't hurt to reach out to somebody.

The "emo rapper" released his debut album Come Over When You're Sober (Part One) three months ago.

His music highlights his drug use and depression.

Unfortunately, it took his death for people to start talking about how harmful it is to glorify addiction and mental illness.

Poetry On Odyssey: Hustle and Bustle This Holiday Season

"...Have conversation, turn off the cable..."


It's Holiday season,

Time to be freezin'.

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it,

Don't stop now, you can't quit.

Numerous trips to grocery stores,

Pure mayhem when you walk through those doors.

Shelves bare,

You're ready to pull out your hair.

Long check-out lines,

Or delayed airlines.

Prepare and cook the turkey low and slow,

Wait for that golden brown skin to glow.

Place the gravy and cranberry sauce on the table,

Have conversation, turn off the cable.

Before you know it, Christmas is here,

The classic songs are music to our ears.

Yet we all dread the trips to the mall,

To find the perfect gifts, big or small.

The Christmas Tree Lighting floods TV stations,

With singers from all generations,

The scent of candy canes fill the air,

We wish the day runs smoothly, Lord, hear our prayer.

Lots of wrappers and bows cover the floor,

As we obsess over our presents more and more.

New Year's creeps up on us,

Throwing a party is always a plus.

Streamers, noisemakers, food,

Who knew planning the perfect party was of this magnitude.

The line at the liquor store gets longer and longer,

Because of the stress in picking a champagne or sparkling cider.

Deciding to prepare finger foods or a five-course meal,

Why not get take-out? DEAL!

Clock counts down from ten.

As the clock strikes one, we've made it to another year, AMEN!

Glasses clinking,

People drinking,

"Happy New Year,"

We cheer.
