The music world was shocked last month when it was revealed that emo rapper Lil Peep had passed away on his tour bus, with many believing that this may have happened due to an overdoes of prescription drugs that could possibly have been attributed to suicide.

Whilst that was just speculation, the results of his autopsy are now in and his cause of death has been revealed. TMZ reported the following:
The Pima County Medical Examiner conducted the testing and found the cause of death came from the “combined toxic effects of fentanyl and alprazolam.” Alprazolam is generic form of the anti-anxiety drug Xanax.
There were a ton of other drugs in his system though. According to the report, obtained by TMZ, he tested positive for marijuana, cocaine and the painkiller Tramadol in his blood. His urine tested positive for all those drugs, plus other powerful opiates such as Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone (Dilaudid), Oxycodone and Oxymorphone. He had no alcohol in his system.
The M.E. says the death was accidental. It’s known that combining Fentanyl and Xanax can cause respiratory distress, coma and possibly death.
Geez, sounds like the guy really was trying to party too hard and burning the candle at both ends. If you’re gonna do that many drugs though then you shouldn’t really be surprised if your body ends up not being able to take it.
Whether he was taking so much drugs because he was depressed I guess we’ll never know though. RIP to Lil Peep – hopefully people can learn from his death and not overindulge themselves and look after themselves better when they’re on the road. We will always have his music at least.
