The powerful opioid fentanyl may've played a role in rapper Lil Peep's death.

According to TMZ, Tucson-based law enforcers are following this lead after several tips suggested that the deceased up-and-comer died after getting his hands on some toxic drugs laced with fentanyl. Reportedly, the abuse of the opioid has become a growing problem in Tucson as well as in other major cities.

In case you forgot, fentanyl caused the deaths of Prince and Eric Chase Bolling Jr. The reason fentanyl is particularly dangerous is because only a tiny dosage of the drug could kill someone — especially a person who doesn't use opioids regularly. Yikes.

Hopefully, for Lil Peep's loved ones' sake, the police are able to figure out what exactly happened to the late musical artist. As always, our thoughts are with Peep's friends and family during this sad time.
