Lil Peep was loved by many for his authentic approach to expressing his emotions in his lyrics and for connecting with his fans on a personal level. His music fused rap and rock, and his songs touched on themes such as depression, suicidal thoughts, and his struggles with bipolar disorder.

Lil Peep’s discography features two albums; Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt.1 (2017), and the posthumous release, Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt.2 (2018). However, some of his earlier EPs also feature on our list of his best songs.

Without further ado, let’s dive into the top Lil Peep tracks, and get lost in his music.

Let’s talk about Lil Peep’s early days and his iconic track ‘white tee’. This song really captures the raw, lo-fi vibe that was so popular on Soundcloud and helped shape Peep’s unique sound.

What’s really cool about this track is that it features Lil Tracy (who was known as Yung Bruh at the time). The video has that youthful energy and you can feel the excitement of these young rappers who were just starting to make it big.

‘White tee’ has become a classic and an important part of Lil Peep’s legacy, with almost 250 million streams on Spotify. It’s amazing to see how this song has stood the test of time and continues to be loved by fans all over the world.

9. Benz Truck (гелик) (2017)

If you’re a Lil Peep fan, you’re probably familiar with his song “Benz Truck” from his first album, Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 1. This track has a slow, moody vibe with a trap beat that sets the tone just right.

While most of the songs on this album have pretty deep lyrics, “Benz Truck” is a bit more straightforward. It’s all about Lil Peep’s truck! The title is actually a reference to the Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV, also known as the G-wagon. The word “гелик” (pronounced “ga-lik”) is just Russian slang for it.

This screamo-influenced track is a real banger, and it reached number seventy-nine on the Billboard Hot 100 after Peep’s tragic death.

The song features on Peep’s debut album Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 1, and it’s one of many projects that Lil Peep and Lil Tracy worked on together.

What makes “Star Shopping” so special? Well, for one, the minimalist guitar-based instrumentals give the track a moody and atmospheric vibe. But it’s the lyrics that really hit home. Lil Peep sings about a relationship that’s falling apart, with the girl’s friends and family disapproving of him. He describes feeling isolated and struggling with his own self-worth.

The slow hip-hop beats add to the spacious yet bleak mood of the song, making it a classic Lil Peep track. And with over three-quarters of a billion streams on Spotify, it’s clear that “Star Shopping” is one of Lil Peep’s most popular songs ever.

It’s the bonus track on his second album that was released after his death. But what makes this song stand out is that it’s a collaboration with XXXTentacion, who also tragically passed away too young.

When “Falling Down” was released as the lead single to “Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2,” it quickly gained popularity with its slow tempo and guitar-based instrumentals that fit more in the emo and pop genre than rap.

Despite the somber mood of the song, it climbed up to number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100 and has since garnered almost one billion streams on Spotify. And even though the song was released after Lil Peep’s death, it’s become one of his most beloved and popular tracks.

It’s a sad reminder of the talent lost in the music industry, but “Falling Down” will always be a testament to the incredible artistry of Lil Peep and XXXTentacion.
