ABOUT LIL PUMP:
Signature colorful dreads flailing, ominous ink on display, and superhero-sized charisma in plentiful supply, Lil Pump (born August 17, 2000) tore through hip-hop like a tornado, amassing over 2 Billion audio and video streams and counting. First joining forces as a 16-year-old with the next generation music and entertainment company Tha Lights Global, the South Florida sonic fire-plug ratcheted up over 200 million Soundcloud plays with his initial tracks, “Flex Like Ouu,” “Boss,” “D Rose,” and “Molly.” Both “Flex Like Ouu” and “Boss” are now RIAA gold certified. But it was the RIAA double-platinum “Gucci Gang” that topped singles charts across North America and Europe, streaming to #2 on the US Spotify Chart and #12 on the Global Chart, and earning over 750 million combined YouTube views for its climactic, larger-than-life video.
