What Went Wrong With… Lil Pump?

An image of a big pump and a little pump mocking rapper Lil Pump. By What Went Wrong Or Right With...?

Thanks to the constant hype, overrating, and defending of substandard rappers such as Lil Yachty and Kodak Black, the bar is now set so low that pretty much any Tom, Dick, or Gazzy can become a world famous “musician”. Gazzy Garcia, better known as Lil Pump, is the latest trash trap rapper spitting that well-known, derivative bullshit, you know; “da-da-da, da-da-da, da, ooh!, da-da-da, da-da-da, da, yeah!” (and a few “prrr” bird chirps inserted for not-so-good measure).

If you don’t know who this simpleton is, or you’ve never heard his songs, take a listen to his self-titled track from last year for an example of how shitty his music is…

There’s also the song “Finesse The Pack”, where he uses the autotune effect to try and disguise his lack of skills (like every other untalented rapper these days)…

“Elementary” is where he repeats the word “elementary” over and over again, goes off beat, and is just generally shoddy at music (I’m sure his fans will have excuses for all this)…

Of course “Gucci Gang” is this twerp’s latest track and it comes with more “prrr” sounds and him repeating the title a bazillion fricking times (probably because he can’t think of anything else to fill the gaps)…

With so many second or third-rate rappers “making it” these days, it makes you wonder; are people deaf or are fans just taking the piss? I mean at one point people thought Riff Raff was satire but nah, he was serious. But things have only gotten worse since; mumbling, dumbing-down flow and content, mainstream Hip-Hop is really in the doldrums right now.

It’s funny that every now and again, thanks largely to the internet, morons with absolutely no talent become famous, either for a short blip (Trinidad James, Slim Jesus) or for what seems like an unwelcomely long time (Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty) and the one constant with all these dull dudes is that their music is rotting garbage. Lil Pump is no different than these aforementioned cretins; he’s corny, contrived, and crap at rapping too. There is nothing original about him or any of these new wack trappers with “Lil” in their name and there’s nothing memorable about the muzak they make; same flow, same topics, same beat, same ol’ shite being overhyped by a bunch of lean-addicted fans.

People’s main defence of this kind of wack music is the amount of money it generates, like monetary gain is somehow supposed to  stop us criticising shitty music. If you’re go-to defence of Lil Pump is his “numbers”, you’re a deaf, dick-riding doormat…

And let me get this shit straight for any contrived “hater” responses; when people like me call out these lames it’s not because of their age, their race, the subgenre or lifestyle that they choose to represent, it’s simply because they are talentless. Lil Pump is quite obviously devoid of musical skills, but he’s the latest in a long line of talentless trap-obsessed purveyors of garbage to become famous.

If you desperately wanna hear a rainbow-haired rapper rap over a contemporary beat, you could just listen to 6ix9ine, ’cause Lil Pump is obviously the wrong choice. There’s plenty of underground stuff that’s infinitely superior than the popular fluff, whatever genre or subgenre, but the mainstream consumer just seems to eat up all the offal that’s fed to them, no matter how tasteless it is.

Back to Lil Pump, this mediocre dope has, like many before him, become a sensation for being nothing special; he doesn’t look good, he doesn’t sound good, so what’s the attraction? And what the fuck does “Lil Pump” even mean? A small gun, an itty bitty shoe, a little suction device, or a tiny penis screwing? Who the fuck knows? All I know is that his music is the audio equivalent of saccharin-infused soft drinks; fake, weak, with a nasty after-taste. If you’re the one buying this bullshit, you’re a…

Lil Chump.
