Late rapper Lil Peep was remembered with a full tribute service over the weekend.

The rapper died last month, a tragic loss that came just as the 21 year old artist seemed set to break out internationally.

Services in London and Long Beach were held over the weekend, featuring live performances and oratory from Lil Peep's family.

In Long Beach on December 2nd Lil Peep’s mother, Liza Womack, told the crowds:

“He lived his own life on his own terms. He was a stubborn, driven, talented, crafty, observant, and tender young man. Gus was also vulnerable.”

The rapper's grandmother Jenny Kastner, added: “He wasn’t the modern-day Kurt Cobain, by the way. He is the first and only Lil Peep, and arguably left behind a legacy that will have a far greater impact. His kindness will live on through lots of people.”

Good Charlotte performed a special version of Lil Peep's song 'Awful Things' - check it out below.

A similar event was held in London, with Lil Peep's face beamed on to the House Of Commons:
