HOST: Lil Peep lives on in a new documentary,
“Everybody’s Everything” and Genius spoke with the film’s directors for a closer look. LIZA: The night that he was born he looked
at me with these big eyes and he was just like a little peep. HOST: “Everybody’s Everything” is directed
by Ramez Silyan and Sebastian Jones. The doc tells the story of the artist born
Gus Ahr, from his beginnings to his eventual death of a drug overdose in November 2017. In an exclusive interview with Genius, Jones
told us that the filming began shortly after his death. SEBASTIAN: Everybody was dealing with it in different
ways, but they were very generous with us and very open. Many people were very kind about um, giving us their time and to help with this. HOST: Peep’s music runs throughout “Everybody’s
Everything. Jones noted how they used “Interlude”
off of 2016’s “Hellboy.” SEBASTIAN: The song “Interlude” that plays
after they’re talking about him struggling with materialism and the values that his family
had which are so very opposite. HOST: In a clip provided to use from the documentary,
we see how Lil Peep’s grandfather was very integral in his life. PERSON: He literally thought Jack was God. Ha, he loved him so much. He was super intelligent very smart but he also like didn’t judge anybody. HOST: Silyan also pointed out how the doc shows that Peep was more than just an emo-rapper. RAMEZ: It’s important that this is a portrait
of him as a human being behind that cover that he created himself. HOST: “Everybody’s Everything” was done
with the blessing of Ms. Liza Womack, Lil Peep’s mother. She spoke with Genius previously on how involved
she has been in the aftermath of her son’s death. LIZA: Theres a lot of music and I’m going to be a very busy mom. HOST: Ms. Womack recently sued First Access
Entertainment for wrongful death alleging that quote. “fostered, promoted and encouraged” ‘unquote’
drug use as a way to maintain control over Lil Peep and his tours. Genius spoke to wrongful death attorney Cioffi
Remmer on what Ms. Womack will have to prove in order to claim a victory in that suit. CIOFFI: Did First Access Entertainment have a duty to prevent Lil Peep from obtaining or accessing drugs. HOST: It’s unclear where this will go but
for now, “Everybody’s Everything” hits theatres on the two year anniversary of Peep’s
overdose on November 15, 2019. I’m Jacques Morel with Genius News, bringing
you the meaning and the knowledge behind the music. Peace.
