Marshmello Drops Lil Peep Posthumous Collab ‘Spotlight’: Listen

Marshmello‘s collaboration
with late-MC Lil Peep has
arrived. It’s the first posthumous release from the emergent
rapper since he died from an apparent drug overdose. The
producer and the emerging rapper began to work on the track a
few weeks before the 21-year-old died. An autopsy report showed
Lil Peep exposed himself to a fatal dose of Fentanyl,
an opiate that is very deadly when taken in part with
heroin or other controlled substances.

The song is called “Spotlight,” and the dance music producer
says he wasn’t sure whether he’d ever release the track, but
Peep’s mother specifically asked that her son’s music be shared
with the world. 

“Peep brought an excitement to music that was unparalleled to
anybody I’ve ever met. We started an idea together, that
unfortunately we were never able to officially finish together.
When I listen to this track now I get chills wishing he could
hear it. This record is dedicated to Peep’s mother, family,
friends and his fans. Gus will live forever through his music
and that is something we should all be extremely thankful for.”
