Lil Peep's dominated 2017 in his own way without having to compromise anything he does. The rapper's continued to push his unique blend of emo with hip hop and became a leader in this new subgenre. Through his efforts, he's found placements modelling for high-end fashion companies in Italy, dropped his Come Over When You're Sober EP and has been touring globally. His gothboiclique have been putting in their own work as well. Today, he comes together with Wicca Phase Springs Eternal and Døves for their latest single, "Avoid."
"Avoid" maintains the continuous emo-rap sound that he's built himself on. The three artists connect on a minimal, melancholic production by fellow gothboiclique members Smokeasac & IIVI. The song kicks off with an acoustic guitar progression before the vocals comes in. Later on, the mood gets kicked up a notch once some trunk rattling 808 drums set it off. It's another dope release from Lil Peep. However, it highlights Wicca Phase Springs Eternal & Døves talents as they handle the majority of the track while Peep handles the hook. With Lil Peep having a massive year so far, the rest of gothboiclique look like they're next up.
Lil Peep's been focused throughout this year. He's not only dropped his debut album but has taken it across the globe with him. The rapper recently toured Europe and is set to kick off the North American leg of his Come Over When You're Sober tour tomorrow. The European dates he recently played were completely sold out. So if you're not riding the Lil Peep wave right now, you better hop on it. Peep is slowly solidifying his position in the music industry, one release at a time.
I got scars on me, no love
Light a candle and I pray for doves
And you're fadin' away, like the pill under my tongue
We seriously never even touched, it sucks
