News is coming in that American rapper Lil Peep has died.

The Fader has reported that a rep close to the American artist has confirmed the news, although the cause of death has not been established.

Passing away at the age of 21, Lil Peep leaves behind a singular catalogue, one that fused 21st century rap tropes with emo's sonic introversion.

Lil Peep's manager Chase Ortega broke the news.

Tributes are flooding in for the loss of such a talented, young, and highly influential artist.

UPDATE:

Clash has published our recent interview with Lil Peep as a tribute to this mercurial artist - highly poignant, you can find it HERE.
