There’s been a lot of talk online about the future of rapper Lil Pump, whose “Gucci Gang” became a hit song after starting out as “a joke.” There were signing rumors and then news that the rapper’s deal with Warner Music was voided. Pump took to social media saying that maybe staying independent was the way to go.
Then Gucci Mane reportedly wanted to sign the young up-and-coming artist commenting on one of Lil Pump’s instagram pics with “1017 you name the price.” (1017 Eskimo Records is Gucci’s label). Now DJ Khaled may have entered the fray too.
The rumors come after Khaled posted a number of pictures on Instagram with him and Pump in a meeting together. One of the photos was captioned “MOGUL TALK!! STILL IN THE MEETING !!!! I TOLD MY LAWYER THIS IS URGENT !! Let’s get this deal done.” The meeting possibly happened at Khaled’s home in Miami.
It looks like everyone wants to get in on the viral sensation. According to billboard:
Pump would be a welcome addition to either roster, as his viral single “Gucci Gang” shot to No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has already amassed over 400 million views on YouTube.
Where will Lil Pump go for the future of his rap career? We’ll have to wait and see.
