He was reportedly taken to the hospital following an overdose.

In a statement, First Access Entertainment CEO Sarah Stennett says she is "shocked and heartbroken". "I'm good, I'm not sick".

If I had to bet on one Peep song to posthumously become a chart-certified hit, it's "Awful Things", the single most potent example of Peep as a rock singer.

Tour staff said Lil Peep - real name Gustav Ahr - had failed to appear for a sound check ahead of a gig, and was found unconscious at about 9pm.

His debut full-length album "Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 1" came out a few months ago, around the same time the rapper came out as bisexual.

Thorne also shared two videos to Instagram stories, emotionally reacting to Peep's death. "Well, he was even more f-ing great as a person".

Rest in peace Lil Peep, you will be missed. "Life didn't do your greatness justice".

Wrote one fan as news of his death broke: "Lil peep challenged the stigma around mental health, lgbt issues, gender roles, addiction... let's please make this about celebrating the fantastic things he's done in his short life instead of writing him off as another pill popping rapper".

Members of the music community, including Sam Smith and Charli XCX, spoke out in mourning Thursday as news of Lil Peep's death came to light. "I'mma see you all tonight".

EDM composer Diplo wrote on Twitter that Åhr "had so much more to do man he was constantly inspiring me", and fellow producer Marshmello said "We were just talking last week about working on a song together and now you're gone".

According to Dugan, Lil Peep's manager found him unresponsive on his tour bus around 8:30 to 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday, November 15, ahead of a scheduled concert in Tucson, Arizona.

Being influenced by mainstream artists such as Gucci Mane and My Chemical Romance, to underground legends like Bones and Rozz Dyliams, Lil Peep curated a sound that can not be replicated.
