Though Lil Peep may not be physically present, his spirit and memory live on through his dedicated fanbase. With today marking the fourth anniversary of his Crybaby mixtape, his family was able to clear ten of eleven tracks and place the project on streaming services at long last. Describing Crybaby as a "turning point" for Peep, the re-release also came ready with some posthumous visuals, a bittersweet reminder of Peep's artistic impact.
By now, Peep's dedicated fanbase is familiar with "Crybaby," though the transition to streaming platforms may open the floor for a new wave of curious listeners. The song itself is classic Peep, an amalgamation of hip-hop inspired-drums and melancholic emo guitar-work. Melodically, he floats over the brooding instrumental with caption-ready lines, successfully blending genres with a talent that would leave ambitious artists envious. "I shoulda curved you, I know I'm the worst, boo," he sings. "But I could be cool too, and you got them dance moves, and I got this vibe, I swear it's perfect to ride to, I wanna die too, we all wanna die too."
Revisit "Crybaby" now, and show some love to the late Lil Peep below in the comment section.
I shoulda curved you, I know I'm the worst, boo
But I could be cool too, and you got them dance moves
And I got this vibe, I swear it's perfect to ride to
I wanna die too, we all wanna die too
