South Florida rapper Lil Pump is one of the hottest rappers in the game right now. His skills are often questioned by hip-hop "purists," but numbers don't lie. His hit single "Gucci Gang" peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and is certified platinum. He also has several hundred million views on YouTube. All this before the age of 18.
Last week Lil Pump's lawyer sent a letter to Warner Bros. Records, Lil Pump's former label, informing them that the contract is null and void because Pump was a minor when he signed the deal. Now he's a free agent and ready to cash out.
Pump told a TMZ cameraman that he's looking for at least $15 million for his next deal. "If you ain't got 15 (million), don't talk to me...I don't want no meetings unless you talkin' 15 and up!" Pump reportedly received a $350,000 advance on his original Warner Bros. contract. It was a very strategic move for Pumps' team to find a loophole to get out of the deal.
After the success of "Gucci Gang," he's due for a huge payday. Gucci Mane and DJ Khaled have both expressed interest in signing the young rapper. Khaled posted pictures on his Instagram of the two, implying that they're close to a deal with his We The Best Music, imprint. Makes sense considering their South Florida ties.
