When Lil Peep first came on the scene he said Fall Out Boy was one of his favorite bands. These worlds collide on a posthumous single.
I dove into the connection between alternative and emo rap when Lil Peep dropped "Falling Down" last fall. Peep was foremost among DIY hip hop artists who are just as inspired by blink-182 as Kanye West and flex those influences accordingly.

The seemingly separate above worlds collide on the poppy, upbeat "I've Been Waiting". Rapper/producer iLoveMakonnen told Fader how the track came together.
Pete [Wentz] had reached out to me after Peep passed away and sent his condolences. I told him about what we were working on and he asked if they'd be interested in adding something to it. It put the cherry on top of something that was already made great. I was very ecstatic with what they did. I showed Peep's mom and a few others, and they were all excited about it.
