Lil Peep’s cause of death has been revealed.
The rapper, who was aged just 21, died from an overdose of fentanyl and Xanax, according to the Pima Country Office of the Medical Examiner.
Mixing the two drugs can potentially result in fatal side effects, as well as respiratory issues and coma.
The rapper’s death was ruled as accidental by the medical examiner.
According to TMZ, other drugs were also found in his system. The report, obtained by the publication, showed he tested positive for marijuana, cocaine and the painkiller Tramadol in his blood as well as opiates such as hydrocodone, generic Dilauded, oxycodone and oxymorphone.
The medical examiner did not find alcohol in his system.
Lil Peep, whose real name is Gustav Ahr, was found dead on his tour bus before a scheduled concert in Tucson, Arizona, on November 16.
He published a series of disturbing Instagram posts in the hours and days before his death, including one with a photograph of him with pills on his tongue, another saying “When I die you’ll love me.”
Another read: “I just wana be everybody’s everything I want too much from people but then I don’t want anything from them at the same time u feel me I don’t let people help me but I need help but not when I have my pills but that’s temporary one day maybe I won’t die young and I’ll be happy?
“What is happy I always have happiness for like 10 seconds and then it’s gone. I’m getting so tired of this.”
Following his death tributes flooded in from fellow musicians, including British chart-topper Sam Smith, who posted on Twitter: “Seeing the news of Lil Peep is so desperately sad.”
Bella Thorne, a former girlfriend of the star, said in videos on her Instagram stories: “To anybody out there who is a Lil Peep fan you guys know how talented he was. How good he was. Well, he was even more f****** great as a person.’
She added on Twitter: “Peep you deserved more out of life. Life didn’t do your greatness justice.”
Marshmello, who has recently collaborated with Selena Gomez, said: “I cant even believe this. We were just talking last week about working on a song together and now you’re gone. You will be missed, R.I.P.
“Peep was the nicest person. hanging out with him, talking to him about music, the song ideas we were going to do together and touring was so amazing. Everyone will miss you man.”
The rapper’s emotional tracks often referred to his depression and drug use and his debut album, Come Over When You’re Sober (Part One), was praised when it was released in August.
