As the creator of infectious catchphrases like “Esskeetit” and “Gucci Gang,” no one embodies the 21st-century hip hop party like the rebellious teen sensation that is Lil Pump. Tonight, the multi-platinum rapper born Gazzy Garcia, shuts down Anaheim with his “Gucci Gang” on the sold out “Harverd Dropout Tour“.
Given Pump’s reputation as “the life of the party”, fans can expect a powerhouse stage performance filled with surprises and a powerful opening act in new sensation Lil Skies. “I’m living my best life,” he says.
Harverd Dropout, Lil Pump’s sophomore album, came out in February. It was originally supposed to be the Miami-native’s scheduled debut album; however, the “lost the album” upon its original 2017 release date. The 18-year-old “Gucci Gang” hitmaker began touring in support of the album this week, with the first night beginning in Seattle Friday (April 19). The second stop on the tour continues throughout the West as Pump headlines his very first show inside the iconic live entertainment venue, House of Blues Anaheim.
Performing songs off the new album and number-one hits, Lil Pump will also perform fan-favorites like “Racks on Racks”, “Multi Millionaire”, and “Off White”. Lil Pump’s breakout hit “Gucci Gang” is a RIAA 4x platinum smash that topped singles charts across North America and Europe. His follow-up “Esskeetit” had the biggest-ever global debut for a hip-hop video on YouTube with 384 million views.
Pump’s accolades include 2018 XXL Freshmen of the Year, 2018 BET Hip Hop Award nominee, 2018 Billboard Music Award nominee, and 2018 MTV Video Music Awards nominee. After Dropout’s arrival, Pump premieres the first episode of his official YouTube series, Pump University. To give fans a deeper look into what his version of college looks like, he created this new series for his YouTube Channel.
Adored by entertainment’s biggest names like Ellen, James Corden, Jimmy Fallon, no one loves Lil Pump more than award-winning music mogul Kanye West. Is it possible that Kanye West will be making a surprise appearance tonight? Both Pump and West headlined at Coachella over the weekend. The two’s hit collaboration, “I Love It” amassed a record-breaking 76 million views in under a week on YouTube. They’ve performed the song on multiple televised outlets including Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Lil Pump will perform a tribute to late-Grammy nominated artist Nipsey Hussle. Pump paid respect to the “Racks in the Middle” hitmaker with a photo of the two upon his passing via Instagram, labeling the entertainer a “legend”.
Lil Pump’s critically-acclaimed album, Harverd Dropout is available now via Warner Bros Records. Featuring hit singles, “Butterfly Doors”, “Be Like Me”, and “Esskeetit”. Special guest appearances an all-star cast of Migos, Lil Wayne, Kanye West, and 2 Chainz.
