In the wake of Lil Peep’s untimely passing, Post Malone honors the artist with a new tattoo on his arm.

The rapper recently added a black and grey portrait of Lil Peep on his left arm, which he shared on social media.

“In the short time that I knew you, you were a great friend to me and a great person,” Posty said. “Your music changed the world and it’ll never be the same. i love you bud. Forever.”

Post Malone spoke further about his late friend in a recent interview on “The H3 Podcast”. “I f*cking love that kid,” he said. “It sucks. I only knew him for a little bit but more than a genuine good real true person that he was, his music was going to change the culture of everything. Already shifting culture in such a short period of time. He was kind of on, I guess. He’s just an incredible, talented dude, and good guy.”

Lil Peep died of an apparent overdose on Nov. 15. He was just 21 years old.

Following his death, an investigation was launched as to whether he was given drugs that had been laced with fentanyl, a powerful opioid, which could have caused an accidental overdose.
