It's pretty much impossible for a posthumous album--usually an unwieldy approximation of a musician's style assembled from leftover scraps and second-choice stems --to stand apart from the passing of the artist. This is especially true for Lil Peep. Revisiting the work recorded in his lifetime is already a particularly vulnerable experience; listening to words like "Took her to the crib and I show her how I die…/Lord why, Lord why, do I gotta wake up?" is made harder when you know the person saying them got what they asked for.
Lil Peep's tragic death just days after his 21st birthday robbed the world of an artist in his prime. Only three years into a quickly rising music career, Lil Peep amalgamated emo rap and more aggressive rock styles for a hybrid sound not quite like any of his immediate peers or forebears. After his passing, posthumous releases began arriving in the form of unreleased singles, the piecemeal Come Over When You're Sober, Pt.
With features from stomping figures Rich the Kid, Lil Tracy, Gab3, and more, 'Everybody's Everything' is a hazed, emo-trap phenomenon that splashes a light to the magic behind Lil Peep's mind. Having died over a suspected drug overdose at just 21 this album harnesses a chilling essence of the rappers life with its tranquillising drill beats and rumble ad libs. Drugs, sex and vulnerability, 'Everybody's Everything' is the extended cut of the recent 'Goth Angel Sinner' EP, featuring acclaimed cuts, 'Moving On,' 'Belgium,' and 'When I Lie.' Opening with mellow, mumble-tone 'Liar,' the sturdy drill beats amongst Peep's howling vocals are a stapled introduction into the album.
