Earlier today Masked Gorilla made the very rare decision to leave the internet and venture out into the real world. The promise of hearing some unreleased music from Lil Peep is what got me to open up my favorite app, Uber, and head over to his place. We've been watching Peep for a minute now. Over the past eight months the 19 year old New York born rapper has been slowly but steadily amassing a very solid foundation of fans on Soundcloud.  When I jumped out the Uber and pulled up to Peep's crib you could already hear the lo-fi music blaring through the windows and walls. Everyone's favorite underground producer Nedarb swung open the door and I stepped into exactly what you would expect a house full of 19-24 year old musicians to look like. Lil Peep, Nedarb, Brennan Savage, Yung Goth, Lederrick, Craig Xen, Wavy Jones, all live here. While Jay Green also resides in the back. Remnants of miscellaneous drugs are scattered everywhere, piles of clothes draping over furniture, a Zig Zag poster conveniently covering a huge hole in the wall where two, unnamed, housemates drunkingly punched the sheetrock in the other night until their knuckles were bloody.    ​   A few minutes after I sat down on the couch with Peep and Ned, Craig Xen and Brennan Savage walked through the door both wearing collared shirts, buttoned up to the top, barely covering Brennan's neck tattoo. They were excited about something, immediately pulling up videos on their phone that they filmed of a new house they are looking to rent. Peep chimed in to fill me in on the current situation. With half a smile on his heavily tattoo’d face, Peep informed me that they were all getting evicted in 7 days. Apparently their landlord didn’t appreciate the loud music in the early hours of the morning. Upon eviction, let’s just hope she doesn’t pull that Zig Zag poster off the wall on some Shawshank Redemption shit and realize that Peep is rap game Andy Dufresne.     Eventually everyone else filed out to head to 7/11 to pick up some Slurpees, sour gummy worms, and 40s, leaving Peep and I alone for him to play some new music from his forthcoming debut project, Cry Baby, dropping sometime next month. The project is easily Peep’s best work yet, with the 19 year old really finding his voice, scattered over mid 00’s emo music samples on the production end. Eventually Peep played the unreleased, lo-fi, Killstation produced “White Tee” music video. Killstation shot the video on a super old camera, which according to Peep was apparently almost too heavy to hold. Nedarb produced the song, brilliantly sampling The Postal Service’s 2003 song “Such Great Heights,” which Ned claimed is his favorite song he’s produced yet. The track also features 20 year old Virginia rapper Yung Bruh.  After hearing some more new music from Peep, and Ned taking over the aux to put me on to some new new music, all 7 soon to be evicted housemates decided it was time to Netflix chill. With nearly each of the 7 roommates passionately debating what gory horror film they should watch, failing to settle on a film even half of them agreed on, I pulled up Uber and dapped everyone up before another hole got punched into the wall.

We Went To Lil Peep’s House Today To Drop His “White Tee” Music Video
