i'm deliberately soundboarding this. get mean, idgaf. get emotional if you wanna lol yeah right you won't. i like it. it's so inspired by feeling emotional while watching anime.

why all these original artists sharing "Lil" is like silly


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.

QuoteThere 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


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


internet people, i need to share about what continues to go on with millions of teens, the self-made-stardom of internet-savvy people. these ones are angelenos. if you don't know her you're missing out, Billie Eilish

she's globally popular. she wears baggy clothes to avoid body shame. baggy clothes--a part of the 90s comeback that's been missing. nah but these fashions are eclectic you know. Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O'Connell writes songs with her brother Finneas O'Connell. they have  parents "in the entertainment industry." he has his own music

THEY ARE SO EMOTIONAL. so emotional. and sincere. and just binge honest. open. real human shit. keeping it real. and again: they're angelenos though. there's more of them. there's Gnash. his father a musician, his mother a director and producer. these are kids brought up to believe in the entertainment industry.




it's all so esoteric but there are millions of teens in a global culture who totally fucking vibe it: it's heavy-2019-shit

and Tyler the Creator, an angeleno, had his first number one with Igor, this song is the song that's the jam on the new album if you were wondering about that

they saying: this is how you invent yourself you fucks lol


Billie as the end credits on Brightburn iz big lolz
Had a convo about Tyler last night with a friend of mine that wants to make music, and it's really something to think back on BASTARD and GOBLIN and all the work thats gone into the music and embrace he has now. It really has been WORK too.
Dood has shaped so much culture, there's a GOLF store on FAIRFAX, fuck, like I remember my friend so hype, he got to shoot the announcement runway show, the first fleur shoez and first soda machine chairz unveiled on livestream, that frkn awesome loop he made for the show.

"I ate one roach and i made a lotta money"
"and while yall rollin doobiez, i be in my bedroom scorin moviez"


this is so real. this is actually happening

the headliner:


i totally get this i'm just the wrong age for it. if i was a teenager i'd be doing just fine because it's basic emotion stuff, which teenagers are better at since adults suck at it

although it's not as if young people don't suck at some things too



Can't wait for Bella Thorne first feature, the one that will include all the "real life fucking". On Pornhub.
