Post Malone was among those deeply affected by the death of Lil Peep.
He had gotten close to the emo rapper over the past year and the two were often photographed together
"I fucking love that kid, it sucks ass… he was the fucking shit. I only knew him for a little bit. But more than [the] genuine good real true person that he was, his music was going to change the culture of everything. Already shifting culture in such a short period of time. He’s an incredible, talented dude and good guy," Post said on the H3 Podcast.
To honor the friendship, Post got a tattoo of Peep on his arm.
Peep died of a suspected drug overdose at the age of 21. A full autopsy will take a few more weeks.
