Lil Peep, “Belgium”

Lil Peep

Even though it’s been over two years since Lil Peep passed, his shadow still looms over pop music and the culture at large. There were so many different ways he could have taken his prodigious talent, which makes each of his posthumous LPs feel like important clues into where his head was at in the final period of his life.

On “Belgium,” he digs deep into grungy gloom — sounding a little bit like a SoundCloud rap Alice in Chains — clearly and affectingly singing about missing someone special to him while out on tour. I hope that he was able to make it back to them, even if it was for way too short of a time.
