This is the official website of the Estate of Gustav Elijah Ahr, who came to be known by his fans as “Lil Peep.”
This website is run by Gus’s mom and brother.
I have learned from Peep fans that Gus was a powerful and influential lyricist and music artist. It was Gus’s honesty that compelled so many people, worldwide, to connect with him. Gus was particularly observant, and able to express his observations clearly and poetically.
So, to honor him, we created this website. We felt that Gus’s fans—both current and future, would welcome the chance to get to know him a little better. We believe that you are right about Gus. You connected with him because he told you that he was like you, and he expressed feelings like the ones you have.
Yes. We wanted to make beautiful designs and things for people wear, skate on, and generally “flex” to show their support for Gus. But we also added an archive that we will add to regularly so visitors to our site can see some of Gus’s artifacts to get to know him better, as a person.
Thank you for visiting.

So, as a little kid, Gus got to experience the pleasure of writing freely. I have all of his written work from the first grade, as well as his early writing from Pre-K and Kindergarten. It is interesting to analyze Gus’s early written work with all his other writing to think about as well. I see patterns in his writing. From the moment he began writing, as a child, until the day he died, Gus mixed reality with make-believe to express his feelings whether they were playful or sad.
What stands out the most to me when I read Gus’s early stories is how so many of them are evocative in the same way that his lyrics are.
Songs We Used to Sing, Listen to, and Read
We had one car. It was a 1992 Nissan Sentra that my mother had bought for us brand new. Johan could walk to work, while I had the car for errands and the kids.
Gus and School: for the Record
From July 27 to August 10, Gus and Makonnen had completed the first fifteen of what would be twenty-one songs and would later be known as the “Diamonds” project. They had completed these songs in Los Angeles. Makonnen had invited Gus, Smokeasac, Fish Narc, and Yung One Era to the Electric Feel studio on Sunset Boulevard. The studio had been new to Gus, and the music was a very new style for him to “hop on.” He had loved every minute of it.
HIGH FASHION - Harry Fraud x LiL PEEP
Gus made California Girls when he was living in Long Beach, during the winter of 2015-2016. He made every one of the six tracks on California Girls with a friend he had never met in person-- @nedarbnagrom. He wrote and recorded these songs at night, and made videos during the day, while I was at work.
Vertigo, January 18 2016
After Christmas, Gus worked with a budding, local, Long Island director named Jon Francois—who goes by the name of Legacy—to make videos for two of the tracks that he decided to release on a four-track EP called Vertigo. All four of those tracks were produced by John Mello (and one was co-produced with Hector Vae).
EVERYBODY'S EVERYTHING AVAILABLE NOW
Creating a unique mix of punk, emo and trap, Lil Peep was set to bring a new musical genre to the mainstream when he died of a drug overdose at just 21 years old. From the streets of Los Angeles to studios in London and sold out tours in Russia, the artist born Gustav Ahr touched countless lives through his words, his sound and his very being.
