Lil Peep and XXXTentacion are set to appear on a new, posthumous song together, according to ILoveMakonnen. The rapper broke the news on Instagram, sharing an audio clip of XXXTentacion speaking about Lil Peep’s 2017 passing. “When I heard X’s recording, talking about my dear friend Peep I could not wait any longer to share this,” Makonnen wrote in the post’s caption.
XXXTentatcion can be heard in the clip saying, “If I would have known he was so cool, I would have linked up with him sooner.” In what sounds like a studio session, he continues, “And it’s unfortunate, because it’s like, yo, people die. That’s when you, you know, your remorse makes you check them out.”
I am honoured to have co written this song that X was inspired to be a part of,shortly before he died. Peep and I always believed that music heals and brings people together in a way nothing else can. When I heard X’s recording ,talking about my dear friend Peep I could not wait any longer to share this. @lilpeep @xxxtentacion coming ASAP!!!!
