at any rate, there’s a whole new generation coming. i hear they wanna call it generation z, and that’s so funny to me. everyone’s still trying to figure out what follows post-modernism. the future was yesterday.

Lil Peep Died Before Becoming Pop Royalty. His New Music May Change That.

There may be a soundtrack to accompany a coming documentary about Peep’s life. (Terrence Malick, a friend of the Womack family, is an executive producer.)

his MOM directed the music video. it ain't even a publicity stunt it's just for real. it just what it is. personally i find it tremendously beautiful, it's community and shared feelings

LIZA'S DIRECTOR'S NOTES:

I'm so proud to have been given the opportunity to collaborate with Steven Mertens on the video for Runaway. It has allowed me to make something beautiful for my son -- in his honor.  Early in the process, many of us agreed that Runaway would be a great song to release as a single for COWYS 2.  It is a powerful song that tells the story of how Gus--aka Lil Peep--had decided to leave his apartment in LA, but he didn't want to come home to live in Long Beach, either.  So, he had gone to stay in London.  That was a productive and happy time for him--working with friends like Smokeasac and ILoveMakonnen.

This video tells that part of Gus's story.  The story is told using many of Gus's drawings, from different periods of his life.  After transforming into the wonderful "flaming-haired" character that Gus drew, himself, he flies away from LAX to London--to make music with some of his best friends.

I know you will enjoy watching it.  You will see different things each time you watch.  His drawings.  His tattoos.  His friends.  The house where he really lived.  And his dog, Taz, the "legend."

Pitchfork placed Lil Peep's Hellboy as a significant album from the past. he simply spreads so far one had to be chosen, and this is the one to choose, because of all its bangers

this dude is so small that he doesn't need to clarify it in his name

it’d all be so ridiculous without that wonderful music video art

Tyler the Creator's manager signed him. i didn't realize this stuff was headed toward mainstream. it's rather very clearly the dominant genre within teen culture now.

Oh yeah, this stuff is THE mainstream for younglings right now. I'm still here for it, though I must admit it's a little disappointing to find elements of late-90s/early-aughts rap metal creeping in at the edges ($uicideboy$, Lil Godd, this Jumex dude). Fully admit my personal bias but I can't sanction that buffoonery. Still fascinating of course but my own enjoyment is diminished. 

Hilarious that there's already a new generation. That the guys I like best and am most familiar with (XXX, Peep, Ski Mask, Trippie Redd, Yachty, Juice Wrld, etc.) are all establishment figures of influence. Elder statesmen whose careers only started like three years ago. While their progenitors (Odd Future, Lil B, etc.) are still well under 30. It's kinda nuts. Although, I guess that's how this works and only seems nuts to me now that I know three years isn't such a long time. How long did hair metal last? Maybe six years? Grunge like five years? Rap metal from 99-03? I mean, The Beatles only put out records for ~7 years and broke up when they were 27, 28, and 30. So Jumex is either The Beatles or Papa Roach is what I'm saying.

basically it's a machine now and something always overthrows the machine
