On “Big Bro,” one of the album’s 19 tracks, the Migos MC raps about a deceased “rockstar” who was taking fentanyl. “Is you with me or against me? / I’m a OG now so you need me,” he raps. “Think you poppin’ Xanax bars, but it’s fentanyl / Think you’re living life like rockstars but you’re dead now.”
Producer Smokeasac, one of Peep’s closest friends and collaborators, took the lyrics as a shot at Peep, who had a song called “Rockstar” and died of an accidental fentanyl overdose in November.
it’s all love until you speak on my family especially my best friend who recently passed. I want an explanation until then it’s #fuckquavo

He went on to shout out the late XXXTentacion, who was murdered during an apparent robbery, and his barber, who died of a fentanyl overdose. “I lost my barber For 10 yrs to FENTANYL R.I.P. Show R.I.P XXX RIP TO ANYBODY WHO LOST THERE LIFE TO DRUG ABUSE!”
