Lil Pump’s Self-Titled Mixtape Is Certified Gold
Lil Pump is busy putting the finishing touches on his new mixtape, Harvard Dropout, but his previous release is still getting recognition. Last week, the Recording Industry Academy of America announced Pump's self-titled debut has reached gold status.
The breakthrough project for the South Florida rapper dropped last October. On June 21, it surpassed 500,000 certified units sold. While the full project has taken its time climbing the sales chart, the lead single, "Gucci Gang," has been doing crazy numbers, having charted in the top three on the Billboard Hot 100. The track was certified platinum back in January.
Right now, the follow-up is the 2018 XXL Freshman's priority. Pump told fans the new project was done back in April, but has yet to offer it up to the public. The project will more than likely feature the singles "Esskeetit" and "Drug Addict," which the rapper recently shot the video for. The visual should feature a cameo from Charlie Sheen. The tape is still without a solid release date. Jetski might be holding out hope for a Kanye West feature.
Pump already has another project on deck, which he plans on dropping following the release of Harvard Dropout. He recently announced a joint project with Smokepurpp is in the making. "So guys, after I drop this project, I'm dropping a project with my boy Smokepurpp," Pump recently revealed via social media video. "We about to drop some crazy shit," he added.
