Confidence From The Jump Is What Carried Lil Pump To The Top: Album ‘Lil Pump’ Is A Culmination Of That Cockiness
Having heard the same singles over the last little while from Lil Pump, I decided to give his albums an actual spin, and I just assumed that I wouldn’t dig his debut as much as his sophomore album, which I just assumed would feature a more mature rapper. I was dead wrong. I found Harverd Dropout to be a pretty weak musical effort – and so working backwards, I assumed the self titled Lil Pump would be worse right? But it simply wasn’t. It’s actually a better album, with better production, and on the songs where Lil Pump actually tries to do more than repeat the same few words over and over, he does have a certain quality that keeps my attention. I am specifically vibing to his carefree annunciation, his humorous demands from women, his singular focuses on drugs and dripping. It’s both invention and reality, since, all of these things that he has rapped about from the beginning were a façade I’m pretty sure, but with progressive success, he ended up attaining the attention and the rewards he felt he deserved from day one. Dude’s psychic for telling it how it would eventually end up being.
