Lil Pump Lands His First Song on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart
If you haven't heard the name Lil Pump yet, you may soon be hearing more of the rapper. On Tuesday (Sept. 19), it was revealed the Florida artist's "Gucci Gang" song has charted on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 81.
It's the song's first week on the chart and Lil Pump's first ever track on the Hot 100. The track was released on Aug. 27 and already has over 11 million plays on SoundCloud, 12 million plays on YouTube and 8 million plays on Spotify. Hear the song, produced by Bighead and Gnealz, below.
While fans wait for more music from Pump, the rapper seems to have an upcoming collaboration with Lil Yachty releasing soon. On Tuesday, Yachty uploaded a video of himself in the studio with Lil Pump and tweeted, "I had walked in ready... @lilpump #lilboat2."
In an interview with XXL earlier this year, Lil Pump discussed the criticism he has received for being a "mumble rapper" and said it didn't bother him. "I’m fine with that," he told XXL. "I don’t really care. It’s not negative; I guess it’s just that ignorant shit. [My music] is just saying reckless shit on a song but going with the flow so they’re still going to fuck with it, even though you’re saying some off the wall shit.”
The teenage rapper also said he wants to be the "biggest thing that's out" and revealed his plan to achieve it. "I don’t sound like nobody," he told XXL. "The route that I’m going through, it’s going to be crazy. And this is only the beginning; I didn’t fully blow up yet.”
Up next for Lil Pump, the rapper recently announced his debut project would be coming out soon. While originally set for an August release, the record has yet to drop, but we hear it's coming out a lot sooner than you think.
