Lil Pump’s “Gucci Gang” Video Upsets Archdiocese of Los Angeles for Being Filmed at Catholic School
Lil Pump just got a Catholic elementary school into a little trouble.
According to TMZ, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles is upset that Pump filmed his "Gucci Gang" video from inside the Blessed Sacrament School. The video, which features clips of the rapper sipping lean and smoking weed, has been seen over 240 million times on YouTube. In the eyes of the Archdiocese, it's probably not the best look.
Apparently, the school's officials never told the Archdiocese of L.A. about the video shoot and they failed to "follow filming policy and procedures." The L.A. Archdiocese isn't too happy with that.
One person that has to be happy, though, is Lil Pump himself. With the repetitive and irresistibly catchy hook, "Gucci Gang" is Pump's biggest single to date. Last month, the song landed in the Billboard Hot 100 chart's top 10, moving all the way up to No. 3. Needless to say, that's pretty good. Speaking to XXL for The Break last spring, Pump said he wanted to be a superstar.
“I want to be the biggest thing that’s out because I’m different from everybody," he said at the time. "I don’t sound like nobody. 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."
Check out the video for "Gucci Gang" below. Listen to Joyner Lucas' totally non-malicious "Gucci Gang (Remix)" when you're done with that.
