Joyner Lucas Insists He Wasn’t Dissing Lil Pump on “Gucci Gang (Remix)”
Joyner Lucas stunned just about everyone when he seemingly dissed Lil Pump in his "Gucci Gang (Remix)," which is a freestyle over the South Florida rapper's Billboard Hot 100 single. However, shortly after dropping the track, the Worcester, Mass. rapper claimed the track wasn't actually a sign of disrespect.
In a tweet he posted after dropping his "Gucci Gang" freestyle, Lucas, who's also freestyled over Future's "Mask Off," claimed his bars aimed at Lil Pump were all in good fun. "For the record, Im a fan of @lilpump .. everytime I remix someone beat I always have fun," he wrote. "Im actually a pump fan. My remix wasn't a diss. Wasn't a diss to @LifeOfDesiigner on panda or @1future on mask on or @kendricklamar on DNA. I jus be goin off havin fun. It's always love 🙏🏼."
In the song, Lucas goes at rappers who spit about pill-popping and Lil Pump himself. "What's a Lil Pump to a rocket flame, yeah/Turn your pink dreads into pocket change," he spits on the track, which he says isn't meant to be a malevolent one.
