Lil Peep has been open about his drug use and depression. In January, he explained that he used his music as a way to deal.

“I suffer from depression and some days I wake up and I’m like, ‘F—, I wish I didn’t wake up.’ I don’t express that side of myself on social media. That’s the side of myself that I express through music. That’s my channel for letting all that s— out.”

Sam Smith, Charlie XCX, and Bella Thorne are among the celebs who have expressed their condolences. Peep and Bella reportedly dated at one point.

Look at that big fucking smile🐥 always lit up the room. Hearts are breaking everywhere. @lilpeep
