Pushed him to the edge

Following the death of Lil Peep from an accidental overdose, Lil Uzi Vert is looking to get off Xanax.

After the 21-year-old rapper passed away on his tour bus before a show in Tucson, Arizona, plenty of rappers and rap fans have been reevaluating their relationship to drugs and the music that addicts make.

Vert seems to have been scared straight by the emo-rap star’s sudden death. First, he shared a post where he claimed to understand what Peep was going through before admitting he’s trying to get clean.

“We Would love 2 stop ….. But Do You Really Care Cause We Been On Xanax All F–king Year,” Uzi wrote on Twitter. “Rip Buddy I 100% Understand and I Don’t Fault U.”

Later that evening, he shared his experience from a single day of being sober.

“Sober 2 day I have been shaking. I have been cursing my love ones out and fighting/In the studio with no thoughts in my head. Teeth biting down because I just wanna be angry at something,” he said. “Maybe I will just smoke weed tonight.”
