I dont know about you, but I’ve had a voice in my head screaming “GUCCI GANG GUCCI GANG GUCCI GANG GUCCI GANG GUCCI GANG GUCCI GANG GUCCI GANG” for the last 3 months. Lil Pump is literally running the rap game, whether you like it or not. The 17 year old renaissance man had the #3 album in the world, and “Gucci Gang” peaked at #3 on the Billboard charts. He also recently was able to finesse his way out of a record deal he signed as a minor that had him forking over the majority of his record sales to his distributor, and is fielding offers upwards of $10 million from pretty much every label in the industry.
His latest single post free agency is a collab with EDM stall-worth DJ Carnage “i Shyne”, and the bass imploding track is already nearing 500k views on YouTube in just a few hours. Insane.
Pump gets A LOT of flack for pretty much having 0 lyrical substance and sort of perpetuating drug culture while boasting about how much ice and cash he has, but you cannot deny his numbers or enigmatic persona. He’s a star, and he’s here to stay for at least the next year. So either get with it and start screaming “ESKKKETTIITTT”
or just start listening to country music. Lil Pump is the prince of rap in 2018.
