A representative for Lil’ Peep’s estate revealed that Terrence Malick will executive produce an upcoming documentary revolving around the deceased rapper’s life.
As fans of the late 21-year-old know, Terrence was a family friend of Lil’ Peep and is perhaps most known for making films like Days of Heaven as well as Bad Lands.
The New York Times was the first publication to reveal the news, and their report indicated that a posthumous album may accompany the new movie.
As it was previously reported, Variety revealed that another Peep album was coming out later in the fall. The record is titled, Come Over When You’re Sober (Part Two), released by Access Records and licensed by Columbia Records.
Reportedly, Lil’ Peep, who died last November from a drug overdose, left behind a plethora of material. Fans will remember when a collaboration with Lil’ Peep and XXXTentacion was released called, “Falling Down.”
Interestingly, the song was unlike their previous tracks, sounding much closer to a pop-song mixed with elements of indie-rock and emo. Music critic, Anthony Fantano, gave the song a positive review while commenting on the fact the song was really not a hip-hop track at all.
Peep’s mother, during a listening event in New York this month, said this latest record was incredibly important because it was the work “of a young, creative, honest, trailblazing artist.”
His mother went on to say that it was significant because, while her son passed away, it’s the record he would’ve wanted. Moreover, Peep’s mother spoke on the opioid crisis, alluding to the death of Mac Miller, and the overdose of Demi Lovato.
Last year, Lil’ Peep was found by his tour manager unresponsive on his bus. Following his death, there was a tremendous outpouring of support, including from fellow rappers, as well as his ex-girlfriend, Bella Thorne.
Mac Miller lost his life on the 7th of September as well, as did XXXTentacion in the summer months, but from a gunshot wound during a robbery gone wrong. Nonetheless, it’s been a tough year for young rap fans.
