Marshmello has shared a new track titled ‘Spotlight‘ which features the late rapper Lil Peep.
The new record is “dedicated to Peep’s mother, family, friends and his fans,” Marshmello said in a statement. “We started an idea together, that unfortunately we were never able to officially finish together. When I listen to this track now I get chills wishing he could hear it.”
Gus will live forever through his music and that is something we should all be extremely thankful for.”
Listen to the ‘Spotlight‘ below.
The new track is one of the first posthumous tracks from the late rapper and follows his video for the track ‘Save That Shit‘. In addition to the new track, Peep’s mother, Liza Womack, shared one of her son’s school essays from 2013. In the essay, Peep, real name Gustav Åhr, talks about “cultural resistance” writing: “In my life I find [cultural resistance] very important and vital to me growing as a person, because my art will always grow with me. If someone were to limit the growth of my art and ideas, I wouldn’t be able to express who I am the way I want to.”
Peep’s debut album, Come Over When You’re Sober (Part One), was released on 15th August, just months before he died from a drug overdose last November.
