From early on, Miami’s sun has illuminated the way for the young Gazzy Garcia. The encounter with his artistic vocation was in part due to the rapper Smokepurpp whom he met when he was just 13 years old. Their collaboration eventually resulted in Lil Pump’s first single, “Movin”, featuring Smokepurpp. It was a success that propelled more singles like “Elementary”, “Ignorant”, “Gang Shit” or “Drum $tick”, songs that quickly earned him recognition through SoundCloud. In a glance, Lil Pump was getting more than 3 million steamings across the multiple digital platforms.
This young rapper’s rebellion eventually found its place for expression in music at the age of 17: rhymes seem to come off smoothly as if they were a second breath. Lyrics on the typical teenage problems, love and the search for an identity, but also on some other issues slightly less common for a regular young man: the first hits, the first money and the expectation of becoming a hip-hop star. The truth is that this status is just around the corner thanks to his contagious beats on the trap side of hip-hop and his strong presence on social networks where he is admired by both his music and his style.
At the end of 2017, he released his debut album, “Lil Pump”, featuring Smokepurpp, Chief Keef, Rick Ross, Gucci Mane and 2 Chainz, names that had always been a reference for Lil Pump. Bighead, Ronny J, Mr. 2-17 and CBMix were in charge of the production of the album. “Gucci Gang”, counting almost 600 million views on YouTube, is one of his most successful singles, conquering millions of people all around the world. It will certainly be one of the songs we will hear on August 10, at the MEO Stage of Meo Sudoeste.
