About Lil Pump
Lil Pump on Tour
When he performs, Lil Pump turns the hypnotic refrains of SoundCloud rap hits like "Gucci Gang," "D Rose," and "Esskeetit" into high-octane, adrenaline-fueled outbursts, banging his head and swinging his braids. A live show is the rare chance to hear these infectious, lo-fi tunes exploding from a system far louder than laptop speakers.
His incredible performances have graced stages at hip-hop festivals like Rolling Loud and Day N Nite, as well as EDM showcase Tomorrowland and Lollapalooza 2018. In 2019, he headlines a tour to support his second album, Harverd Dropout, and hits Coachella with Gucci Mane and Smokepurpp as the supergroup Gucci Gang.
Lil Pump in Concert
Gazzy Garcia — the hitmaker known as Lil Pump — was only 16 when he uploaded his first charting song to the Internet, but he promptly became a defining figure in SoundCloud rap, the cutting-edge hip-hop scene that disrupted the music industry.
Born in Miami in 2000, Pump began his musical career casually freestyling around his friend Smokepurpp, a fellow SoundCloud rapper who eventually convinced the teenager to record something. Early songs like "Elementary," "Drum$tick," "Boss," and "Flex Like Ouu" had a punk-rock length of less than two minutes, racking up millions of listens.
"D Rose," a single released in 2017, became his breakthrough, and he signed to Warner Bros. imprint Tha Lights Global before turning 17. That summer's infectious megahit "Gucci Gang" got to No. 3 on Billboard, ultimately being certified 4x platinum.
Pump soon became an in-demand collaborator, doing a song with Diplo and French Montana for the Deadpool 2 soundtrack ("Welcome to the Party") and, later, a song with Skrillex and Maluma ("Arms Around You"). Pump worked with Kanye West for the smash "I Love It," which the duo performed on Saturday Night Live dressed as water bottles. The song ended up on Pump's second album, Harverd Dropout, which debuted in the Top 10 and features appearances by Lil Wayne, Offset and Quavo of Migos, 2 Chainz, and more.
