By Jon Caramanica. SEATTLE — One night this spring, the rapper Lil Pump, 16, with braces on his teeth, was asleep — or something like it — on the couch in the upstairs green room at the Columbia City Theater here, his blond and pink dreads dangling in front of his face and a pair of Gucci high-tops slung around his neck.

They were young — the bar was effectively closed, and a woman was selling cans of Sunkist and Minute Maid Lemonade from an ice-filled tub.

She was incredibly close to her son, born Gustav Ahr, and loved looking after him in the days between tour dates. Typical mom stuff. Just days later, Peep would be found dead, from an overdose of Xanax and fentanyl , leaving behind a devastated extended family and a body of profoundly influential music. That legacy takes on even greater weight this week when coupled with the sudden death of his peer, year-old rap star Juice Wrld , following a seizure that may have been brought on by a drug overdose, according to law enforcement sources. These deaths, along with the murder of Peep collaborator XXXTentacion , have led to a call for the music industry to take better care of its young, often troubled artists. Appreciation: Hip-hop star Juice Wrld — a natural talent, yet another unnatural death. On Sunday, he died at age Liza Womack wants to prevent other parents and nascent artists from facing the same fate.
