We are pleased to announce that Live Forever is now available on all streaming platforms. Gus released Live Forever in December 2015. It was his second solo mixtape. The tape showcases Gus’s love for alternative and gothic rock, sampling recognizable tracks such as The Cure’s “The Drowning Man” and Marilyn Manson’s “Coma White”. It also features samples of Jimmy Stewart in “It’s a Wonderful Life” (1946), and Radiohead's "Climbing Up The Walls". Released just months before later breakthrough mixtapes, Peep’s Live Forever sees him unpolished and unrestrained; all songs were recorded in his bedroom using GarageBand, over intense beats sent to him by producers he had met online. In a similar vein, the music video for the titular track (the project’s only associated video) was recorded spontaneously in late 2015 in Peep’s hometown of Long Beach, NY. Live Forever remains a fan favorite seven years later, treasured for its earnest lyrics and as a token of an artist still mastering the particulars of his craft.
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.

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.

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.
