In celebration of what would have been Lil Peep's 22nd birthday, the mother of the late-rapper released a new music video for a new song called "Runaway."The video for the song from the forthcoming post-humous album 'Come Over When You're Sober Pt.2' was directed by his mom, Liza Womack. You can read below her director's notes on the visual: "I'm so proud to have been given the opportunity to collaborate with Steven Mertens on the video for Runaway. It has allowed me to make something beautiful for my son -- in his honor. Early in the process, many of us agreed that Runaway would be a great song to release as a single for COWYS 2. It is a powerful song that tells the story of how Gus--aka Lil Peep--had decided to leave his apartment in LA, but he didn't want to come home to live in Long Beach, either. So, he had gone to stay in London. That was a productive and happy time for him--working with friends like Smokeasac and ILoveMakonnen. This video tells that part of Gus's story. The story is told using many of Gus's drawings, from different periods of his life. After transforming into the wonderful "flaming-haired" character that Gus drew, himself, he flies away from LAX to London--to make music with some of his best friends. I know you will enjoy watching it. You will see different things each time you watch. His drawings. His tattoos. His friends. The house where he really lived. And his dog, Taz, the "legend."  Lil Peep's 'Come Over When You're Sober Pt. 2' will be released next Friday, on November 9.

In celebration of what would have been Lil Peep’s 22nd birthday, the mother of the late-rapper released a new music video for a new song called “Runaway.”

The video for the song from the forthcoming post-humous album ‘Come Over When You’re Sober Pt.2’ was directed by his mom, Liza Womack. You can read below her director’s notes on the visual:

 

“I’m so proud to have been given the opportunity to collaborate with Steven Mertens on the video for Runaway. It has allowed me to make something beautiful for my son — in his honor. Early in the process, many of us agreed that Runaway would be a great song to release as a single for COWYS 2. It is a powerful song that tells the story of how Gus–aka Lil Peep–had decided to leave his apartment in LA, but he didn’t want to come home to live in Long Beach, either. So, he had gone to stay in London. That was a productive and happy time for him–working with friends like Smokeasac and ILoveMakonnen.

 

This video tells that part of Gus’s story. The story is told using many of Gus’s drawings, from different periods of his life. After transforming into the wonderful “flaming-haired” character that Gus drew, himself, he flies away from LAX to London–to make music with some of his best friends.

 

I know you will enjoy watching it. You will see different things each time you watch. His drawings. His tattoos. His friends. The house where he really lived. And his dog, Taz, the “legend.”

 

 

Lil Peep’s ‘Come Over When You’re Sober Pt. 2’ will be released next Friday, on November 9.
