Lil Peep is a bit of enigmatic figure in hip hop, even considering the ways the genre has been evolving and morphing with unexpected influences over the past couple of years. Reviewers have had a notoriously tough time writing about him due to his trademark genre-bending sound, morbid and irreverent subject matter, offbeat demeanor, and of course, the infamous "daddy" tat across his chest. He's clearly interested in giving his devoted supporter base what they want, though—as a response to fan demands, he released his latest LP, Come over When You're Sober, Pt. 1 at midnight last night.

The Long Island native's sound is an unlikely marriage between the darker tones of mid-2000's pop-punk and today's mumblerap over trap drums and heavy bass. Most of the tracks on Come over When You're Sober, Pt. 1 feature the kind of spidery, metallic guitar and bass licks you'd expect to hear on the beginning of one of Brand New's slower tracks, complimented by tons of 808's high hat and chanted vocals that tow the line between emo and trap.

While he's carved out a relatively deep niche in the hip hop scene since he first began dropping mixtapes a couple of years ago, he's got quite a fervently devoted group of fans behind him (the perpetually sold-out merch on his website and his millions of plays on Soundcloud are a testament to that). He's been somewhat under the radar until this year, but it's clear that he's slated for a big come up. His name has been hard to avoid as of late, especially after stints walking for Rick Owens, Balenciaga, among others at Milan and Paris fashion week earlier this year.

Considering the album's early release and labeling as "Pt. 1," we expect to see a follow-up to the seven-song project by the end of this year. His press reps have also announced that he'll be releasing the music video for one of the tracks on the LP, "Awful Things," this Thursday; it's rumored to draw inspiration from 70's supernatural terror flicks like Carrie and from Japanese horror manga. The man loves his mashups.

The album is now available on Soundcloud, Apple Music, and Spotify. Check out the teaser for the "Awful Things" video here.
