Wiz Khalifa commented on Lil Peep pass during a recent interview with Complex. His statements come a few days after he issued a PSA of sorts condemning the widespread use of the mass – another of the opiate in the modern-day culture.
"I feel like someone has to speak for the people who don't believe in that, or are really tired of seeing," Khalifa said of his recent missive. "It's unfortunate that Lil Peep had to die and things like that, but these are the things that people are going to start to see and keep happening if you really don't relax and fall back. I'm just trying to be responsible to say something."
Erykah Badu told TMZ that she feels that there is a major mental health problem among young people today.
"I don't think the problem is the music, nor is it the problem of drugs," he said. "It is a mental illness. We are only reflecting what we see. We are trying to deal with everything that surrounds us. It is only toxic thing that is happening now. The youth of today are calibrated to a speed where you are so bored where we have evolved."
Badu added, "It's sad, man. I wish you and your family and I pray for your spirit."
