Gucci Mane and Lil Pump Open the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards With “Kept Back”
Lil Pump and Gucci Mane just opened up the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards in the best way possible.
Pump, a 2018 XXL Freshman, started moving the crowd with his hit single, "Esskeetit" before the crowd started an uproar as he was joined by Gucci Mane for their first-ever performance of "Kept Back." Guwop initially dropped the track with the 18-year-old two months ago during a visit to Zane Lowe.
Before they exited, Gucci and Lil Pump ended with the remix to "Gucci Gang," the latter's certified, triple platinum single from 2017.
Though neither received any awards for their music at the ceremony, both rappers have had exceptional years. Lil Pump recently scored another Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit with him and Kanye West's "I Love It" in September. He was also given the opportunity to perform said track with 'Ye during the season premiere of Saturday Night Live last month.
The Wopster, on the other hand, is hard at work on new music and other business endeavors. Most recently, the Diesel model dropped "Wake Up in the Sky" with Bruno Mars and Kodak Black. The song marked his 25th entry on the Hot 100 chart.
Gucci is set to go on tour with Carnage and Pump's partner-in-crime, fellow Freshman Smokepurpp, beginning Nov. 7 in St. Paul, Minn.
