Lil Pump is an American rapper who has conquered the charts of global radio stations and streaming platforms, as well as the admiration of rap culture enthusiasts over the past 7 years. He is one of the most popular SoundCloud rap artists. Lil Pump reached the peak of his fame in 2017 with the release of his single “Gucci Gang,” which stood out with its hypnotic flow and unique sound. It reached the 3rd position on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and the Recording Industry Association of America awarded it a platinum certification five times. This single also became the flagship of his debut album “Lil Pump,” which reached the 3rd position on the Billboard 200 chart and the 2nd position on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart. The album featured collaborations with Smokepurpp, Gucci Mane, and Lil Yachty.
In the same year, another wave of success followed with the release of the single “Welcome to the Party” in collaboration with Diplo, French Montana, and Zhavia Ward, which also became one of the soundtracks for the movie “Deadpool 2.” In 2018, Lil Pump collaborated with a number of musicians, including Lil Yachty, Lil Rich, and BlocBoy JB. At the end of the year, the rising star released the single “I Love It” together with American rap superstar Kanye West, which currently has over 643 million views on Spotify.
Lil Pump has become an inspiration and proof that even young people with behavioral and learning difficulties (Lil Pump has admitted to having dyslexia) can achieve remarkable success. In his childhood, he had no interest in music, but that changed after being expelled from school in 9th grade due to a fight with a fellow student. Lil Pump’s tracks “Broke My Wrist,” “D Rose,” and “Elementary” quickly gained recognition on online streaming platforms. The musician’s vibrant, sharp, and protest-oriented personality also attracted a huge following on social media, making Lil Pump an icon of the rap culture among today’s youth.
To date, Lil Pump has released three albums. His videos on YouTube have been viewed 3.8 billion times. The top three hits on YouTube and Spotify platforms are “Gucci Gang” with 1.4 billion views, “I Love It ft. Kanye West” with 800 million views, and “Esskeetit” with 600 million views. Lil Pump will be supported by local representatives of rap and hip-hop genres, including Prusax, Rolands Če, Xantikvariāts, and Steps.
