Hidden Gem: Everybody’s Everything
If you're not familiar with underground hip-hop, you might not know the name Lil Peep and if you have, you might not know the person behind the face tattoos and colourful hair. In the surprisingly thoughtful and emotional documentary Everybody’s Everything
, directors Sebastian Jones and Ramex Silyan look at the life of the person behind the persona, Gustav Elijah Åhr, and make a case for why he’s a hip-hop pioneer. Using tour footage and interviews from his friends, family and associates, the doc details his rise to fame as one of the first successful so-called "Soundcloud rappers" and the influence his punk-rock-emo-rap sound had on young hip-hop artists before a tragic drug overdose cut his life short in 2017. You can stream Everybody’s Everything
on Crave today.
