Lil Peep's toxicology report confirms of an overdose of several drugs.
In mid-November, the devastating news broke of Lil Peep's death. At the time, the cause of death wasn't exactly clear but many speculated it was from an overdose from drugs, specifically Xanax. Since then, there's been investigations from police and the conversation surrounding the glorification of drugs in hip hop heightened. Today, the toxicology report has come in and confirmed the exact cause of his death.
Lil Peep's death has officially been ruled as an accidental overdose of Xanax and Fentanyl, according to TMZ. The Pima County Medical Examiner said his overdose was from a combination of the "toxic effects of fentanyl and alprazolam." Alprazolam is the generic form of Xanax. In addition to that, they found many other drugs in his system including marijuana, cocaine and Tramadol in his bloodstream. His urine test also had traces of Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Oxycodone and Oxymorphone.
Lil Peep was found dead on his tour bus on the night of November 16th. The rapper was scheduled to play in Arizona that evening and had met up with a fan who sold him what she said was Xanax. The rapper later took the pills and didn't end up waking up from his pre-show nap.
Many rappers and artists offered their condolences on social media. Lil Uzi Vert even tried sobriety in the days following his death and Post Malone got a tattoo of Lil Peep's face tattooed on his arm.
His family later hosted a memorial, which was streamed live, which included speeches from Peep's grandmother and his mother. Good Charlotte also performed at the funeral and did a cover of his single, "Awful Things."
