His songs are about doing cocaine, wanting to commit suicide, and talking to girls about cocaine and suicide. Between his mixtapes hellboy and crybaby , as well as various one-off loosies and collaborations, he has rapped over samples of Brand New, Underoath, Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer, The Microphones, Sonic Youth, The Postal Service, and an acoustic performance of "Creep" by Radiohead. He attacks these samples with the same half-singing, half-mumbling cadence of rappers such as Playboi Carti or Lil Yachty, cloaked in the vocal tones of mall-rockers past. All of the songs on his SoundCloud are tagged " Alternative Rock," and his account on the site reveals that he's left multiple comments on songs produced by someone named Marilyn Mansion. His vibe is somewhere between "shoegaze Kreayshawn," "little brother of the guy Lana Del Rey sang about on 'Video Games'," and "Hey, remember that emotionally manipulative coke dealer you met on Myspace and then dated for three months back in high school? Well, that dude's still 19, and he raps now! The natural first reaction to Lil Peep is confusion, especially if you are an adult. When he raps about "living at the mall, yeah" on "the song they played [when i crashed into that wall]," it's genuinely hard to tell if he's bragging about dropping stacks at the Giuseppe store or if he's been killing time there by shoplifting from Hot Topic and flipping vape juice to underage kids.

Now that rap has overtaken rock as the most profitable genre, it is reasonable to view hip-hop as its own economy. The genre itself operates on a modified boom and bust cycle. There are booms, which see expansion culminate in a peak, and busts, in which rap contracts into a trough. During the booms, rappers release grotesquely commercially successful albums about partying, sex and living the high life. This period makes the most money, but grows stale quickly, and by the end, the looming recession sucks out all the joy found on these projects. The booms are unsustainable, though, and busts begin before many even realize. As top grossing rappers fade from heydays into mentorship roles, the genre is quieter and less prominent on the charts and radio. But to the rap fan, these periods are infinitely more exciting. The busts are when the genre is tinkered with, modified to fit into the contemporary landscape.
