Polarising rapper Lil Peep – loved and derided in equal measure for his fusion of 00’s emo and hip-hop — has spoken about his most enjoyed memes and a slightly surprising love of the cult classic online RPG Runescape in his latest interview. Speaking to Dazed, he also expanded on his favorite cat videos and other rare internet-famous media.

Speaking on Runescape:

“Something people wouldn’t expect me to do is I play this computer game called Runescape. I’ve played Runescape since forever. Since I was like, six. It is still one of my favourite games ever. Even though it’s gotten progressively a lot worse, just like everything else has over time, right? I mean videogame-wise. Certain stuff used to be really hard to get and really rare or whatever and they just made a ton of everything so all the value of everything decreased. Now it’s like way easier to get way further quicker. Normally it took you like a year or at least a few months to be really good and now you can do it in a week. I like RPGs. Runescape you could do the same thing as Club Penguin except you could kill dragons and stuff like that. I’ve made real money off Runescape, too. It’s crazy. People will really buy a fake hat that doesn’t exist in real life.”

Speaking on his favorite memes:

“There was one meme video they did of Nicki Minaj recently and she was like, saying some shit and talking shit and whipped her hair back and walked away and they just did so much to the video it was insane. They had her spinning all over the world, she was a tornado fucking up shit, I don’t know. Oh my gosh. The amount of effort people put into that shit. They do it in minutes. They do it to me in minutes. They do it to other people in seconds. It’s insane, they’re on top of it.”
