Meet Lil Peep, The Kurt Cobain of modern rap

Published

on

For the release of his new song ‘Hollywood Dreaming’ with – THE REAL UZI – ( yes there was a uzi before Lil Uzi Vert ), Lil Peep has brought the Ogs and his grand ma is wit the s**t.

To call Lil Peep’s music “rap” is technically incorrect, with the very specific exception that the base of the music is mainly composed of guitar riffs and arpegios on, like our friend from Pitchfork will say, wholesale rips of Postal Service songs.

He merges with perfection the sad vibe of grunge much like Yelawolf, a rebirth of a hype contelmporary version of Kurt Cobain. Onlyth newer—and better.

His songs perfectly channel the dead god of grunge, and his good friends the SlugChrist & Father gave him the platform to showcase his talent, as theier influence as rapper on the underground really vehicules at a quick pace any new unique trend. who  about drinking, drugs, and the loneliness they try to fill go straight for the gut and stick there.

“More wine, more wine/Pour another cup/More wine, more wine/Lord why, lord why do I gotta wake up?”

Endlessly catchy, Peep has an excellent mixtape, Hellboy, and a souncloud full of airy tracksyou check down below. We highly recomand the second track featuring Xavier Wulf called “Drive-by”

Who is Scarlxrd?

Scarlxrd, Meet With Hip Hop’s Most Violent Act.

Scarlxrd must be the most violent act in the scene. Hailing from England, the metal-influenced rapper plays extremely well with the codes and aims to push boundaries of the genre to another level.

With the early XXXTentacion tending to be sonically rough and violent, the English emcee takes it further while he sticks to the codes.

Defined by the distorted vocals, use of heavy guitar riffs from time to times to gives it its aggressive foundations, the trap elements connect the dots to make it fall under the rap category.

Flaunting his thousand-dollar outfit in his videos and lyrics, the former family friendly YouTuber whose use to  publish video under the moniker of Mazzi Maz, has been fueling controversy in the underground partly due to his talent but also due to the comparison with Broward County superstar XXXTentacion.

Before his solo rap career, scarlxrd was part of rap-rock band Myth City in 2016, but month later Marcu ‘Maz’ Listhrop from his real name, created his scarlxrd alter-ego and released 7 mixtapes: Annx DxminiLXRD,  SavixurRxseChaxsthexry and Cabin Fever.

Why does he wears a face mask?

Scarlxrd wears a black surgery face mask so he won’t be recognized and mainly due to his YouTube popularity. In fact the rapper was a YouTube superstar in England and has a recognizable mark under his chin. A White spot that might be sign of Vitiligo and that he wants to hide from people. Hard enough to maintain into a character, the UK savage doesn’t seem to want people to know about his past which doesn’t fit with the Scarlxrd character.
