Lil Peep, who's been described as being "at the forefront of bridging hip-hop, emo-pop-punk, and one of the most promising musicians in any genre," passed away two weeks after his 21st birthday. He had gained a significant following online, and his first studio album, Come Over When You're Sober, PT.1, just like a slew of mixtapes and projects he dropped, is a haunting look at the battles the artist was fighting—depression, suicidal thoughts, drug use, relationship issues. His raw, intimate approach struck a chord with his fanbase, and even after his passing, his legacy commands a cult-like following, with many lamenting Peep's curtailed potential. This deluxe package contains the Long Island artist's aforementioned LP + his second album, Come Over When You're Sober Pt.2, Peep's first posthumous project. Produced by friends and collaborators Smokeasac and George Astasio of IIVI ("I could feel him there and that and his incredible fans are what got me through it."), both albums mix up live guitar loops with reverb-ed trap rhythms, and Peep's distinct vocals sit beautifully over the instrumentals to complete the gloomy, often-drug-addled vibe.
