Lil Pump opens The 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards With A Special Medley Performance Of “Esskeetit,” “Kept Back Ft. Gucci Mane,” And “Gucci Gang Remix” Tonight On BET 8P/7C
Signature colorful dreads flailing, ominous ink on display, and superhero-sized charisma in plentiful supply, Lil Pump (born August 17, 2000) tore through hip-hop like a tornado, approaching 3 billion audio and video streams and counting.
First joining forces as a 16-year-old with the next generation music and entertainment company Tha Lights Global, the South Florida sonic fire-plug ratcheted up over 200 million Soundcloud plays with his initial tracks, “Flex Like Ouu,” “Boss,” “D Rose,” and “Molly.” Both “Flex Like Ouu” and “Boss” are now RIAA gold certified. But it was the RIAA double-platinum “Gucci Gang” that topped singles charts across North America and Europe, streaming to #2 on the US Spotify Chart and #12 on the Global Chart, and earning over 750 million combined YouTube views for its climactic, larger-than-life video.
Continuing his unending hot-streak, Lil Pump & Kanye West made history with their new single “I Love It.” The visual scored the biggest-ever global debut for a hip-hop video on YouTube, generating over 76 million views in its first week and smashing a record previously set by Childish Gambino’s “This Is America.”
