Lil Peep’s mother drops one of the late rapper’s final music videos
Following Lil Peep’s untimely death at the age of 21 last month, his mother Liza Womack is trying to keep his music alive and dropped a video for his track “Save That Shit”.
Womack released the music video for a track off Peep’s debut album ‘Come Over When You’re Sober (Part One)’, on Wednesday (Dec. 20). It begins with a dedication to him: “In loving memory of my son Gus.”
Then, we see live concert footage of Peep performing the moody love song for his dedicated fans. It’s spliced alongside candid footage of his life on the road, as well as shots of a woman waiting for him to respond to her texts. He eventually does, texting her lyrics from the song: “Do you wanna glo? Baby, we could glo.”
In a statement, Womack explained why she decided to release the video, saying, “It’s been a hard time for all of us who loved Gus and we are going through the process of coming to terms with our loss.”
“Peep would have wanted his collaborators to move forward with his plan for the release of music and visuals in 2018 as he had originally intended” she continued “So today, we are starting that process by releasing the video for ‘Save That Shit.’”
The nearly four-minute video was directed by Mezzy and Heavy Rayn and it had received nearly 785,000 views by midafternoon Wednesday, less than 24 hours after being posted.
