Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 17, 2017

Rapper Lil Peep, an emerging voice on the hip hop scene and a YouTube star, has died at the age of 21, police and a business associate confirmed to CNN Thursday. A spokesman for the Tucson, Arizona, Police Department told CNN that police were called just before 9 p.m. Wednesday night after Lil Peep was found unresponsive by his manager in his tour bus and said that first responders "rendered medical aid but they were unable to save him." "After speaking with people on scene and going into the tour bus, (police) said that there was evidence of a possible drug overdose, most likely from Xanax," Sgt. Pete Dugan told CNN in a phone interview Thursday.

A person I follow on Instagram had Lil Peep as a Lyft passenger just a week ago. He said he was exceptionally nice and friendly.

Prescription drug overdoses are an epidemic in this country.

What a mess. He looked like a short timer. If they ever remade Trainspotting, he could've starred.

He did this tour of his tattoos. It was fascinating. He was still a kid. OD'ing on anti-anxiety meds is tragic.

OD'ing period is tragic. The kid had a drug problem the whole time if you read the NYT piece. He actually had some talent. Tragic this is the life he chose.

If he'd been killed in a mass shooting we couldn't talk about him at all.

Frankly yes. All ODs do matter. Care to say they don't?

This kid was an extra special wreck.

If your parents both graduated from Harvard and you got facial tattoos there's a 99% chance you've squandered your life.
