yo outsider here but imo it takes a dedicated deej hater to read "taking satisfaction" into that post, like i too am amazed at how quickly lil peep went from bad internet musician to subject of serious journalism and i have no stake in this at all.

imo,"the dominant tone switched from critical to reverent" entirely because the kid is dead and if that's me being cynical then i would ask where all the think pieces about his immediate contemporaries are at.

jon caramanica who wrote the glowing piece in the ny times was a fan of his before he died chief

caramanica spilled way more ink on the nothing nowhere kid (or xxx or uzi or lil pump) than he did on peep until peep died

That’s completely false. Are you talking about the huge times feature on the new rap underground where he calls peep the scene’s Kurt cobain and barely touches on xxx? Just give up forks, you’re being dumb

And yes he got super into peep knockoff Nothing Nowhere for some reason but pointing out that he preferred one white emo rapper to another doesn’t make a very compelling case that no one cares about white emo rappers until they die

yeah Caramanica did a podcast on the scene heavily featuring peep months before he died

my argument, such as it was, was that your phrasing was hella gross. Past that, I suggested that the main reason that conversation on peep has shifted from critical to reverent is because he died way too early. This is not shocking; nobody wants to speak ill of the dead. Nobody said "no one cares about white emo rappers until they die" except you.

outside of those points, i got nothing to say about peep, so I'll clear the floor.

is gym class the same song as beamer boy?

anyway, it all feels like Harmony Korine's take on trap rap to me.

("never on the streets, cuz I'll never leave my home") is kinda Why-esque nerdy cool though.

my argument, such as it was, was that your phrasing was hella gross.

And this argument is a shallow & obvious fig leaf for your personal resentment bc there’s nothing gross about what i said, It’s a neutral observation about how fast the critical narrative shifted that you’re bringing a whole bunch of baggage into of your own. Please fuck off

Peep's love for RHCP is pretty endearing and kinda explains a lot imo. Got me to revisit their catalog with new ears around when he passed and deej posted that tweet of his upthread (also saw them live around that time).

I really love “come on over when you’re sober, pt 1.” Kind of crude but earnest, charming and at moments heartbreaking. Kills me that this kid—who was 9 years younger than me I think—is dead and just reinforces my hatred of drugs
