Lil Pump Rumored to Sign New $8 Million Deal With Warner Bros. Records
Lil Pump's time as a free agent may have been short lived as the rapper has reportedly signed a new deal with his former record label, Warner Bros. Records.
According to a Billboard report, two months after voiding his deal with Warner Bros. on grounds that he was underage when he first signed, the "Gucci Gang" rapper has now inked a deal with the label worth $8 million. The deal reportedly includes Pump's first album and a wide variety of royalties.
The rapper was only 16 years old when he signed his first contract with Warner Bros., but earlier this year, attorney John Branca issued a notice about Pump's age and got the deal nullified.
In the time that Pump was a free agent, the rapper had reportedly courted offers from DJ Khaled's We the Best label, as well as Gucci Mane's 1017 Eskimo imprint. While the rapper's new deal is reportedly worth $8 million, Pump had said he was holding out for $15 million.
"New deals on the way, bitch," he said in January. "If you ain't got 15 [million] don't talk to me, bitch, at all. I don't want no meeting unless you talking 15 and up. I don't want to talk to nobody. Esketit!"
In related Lil Pump news, the rapper recently made headlines when he said he and Migos run hip-hop culture. "The Migos and Lil Pump run the culture," he said in an Instagram Story video, adding, "And if you feel some type of way, suck my dick!"
