The late rappers XXXTentacion and Lil Peep may be resting in peace, yet they are still releasing music for their fans. Their new collaboration, “Falling Down,” was released this Wednesday (Sept. 19). XXXTentacion recites lines about death on the interlude such as, ‘It’s unfortunate because it’s like, yo, when people die, that’s when you’re there, you know’. Lil Peep follows the interlude with his vocals on the chorus.
The irony of the two rappers creating music together prior to passing away makes is guaranteed to make a huge impact on fans.
The song is said to be co-written by Makonnen. Before the track’s release, Makonnen wrote a message on Instagram about his friendship with Lil Peep stating, “he used that medium to express emotions and ideas both powerfully and neatly,” he wrote. “He combined that craft (and I say craft because it was something that he worked on and thought about) with music.”
According to Variety, a posthumous album is on the way as well.
A source confirms to Variety that an album of unreleased material from Peep, which presumably will include “Falling Down,” is due on Columbia in the coming months. The source added that the rapper left behind many unreleased recordings.
XXXTentacion was killed in June 2018 outside of a motorsports store and Lil’ Peep died in Nov. 2017 of a drug overdose.
