CRITIC REVIEWS

HipHopDX

Other than polished vocals and drastically better mixing, Lil Pump sounds the exact same as he did when he dropped Lil Pump; zooted on Xans, lean, and without a care in the world. The rapping is simple, the concepts are easy to grasp as he pretty much gets straight to the point on all 16 tracks.

The 405

Lil Pump isn’t chasing a Pulitzer or even Grammy nominations with Harverd Dropout, but there could still be more effort put in or at least a willingness to take chances, even if it means more purists will turn their noses up at it.

50
Highsnobiety

Harverd Dropout relies on the fast food approach, pumping out an addictive, simple product that goes down easily. But just like that Big Mac meal, you’re gonna get a stomach ache 10 minutes after finishing and wonder; was it really worth it?

50
AllMusic

Though it's only a lean 40-minutes long, Harverd Dropout feels like it lasts forever, losing its shine quickly as Pump runs in place, futilely reaching for the personality that made him a star.

40
NME

It quickly becomes apparent that there’s a limited shelf life to Pump’s shtick.

40
The Needle Drop

Harverd Dropout sounds more refined and slicker than its self-titled predecessor, but is all the worse for it.

40
Spectrum Culture

Harverd Dropout works as a party album, but beware any party where it’s playing—its real target audience is middle-schoolers listening under their moms’ nose.

38
Pitchfork

His act is contrived, and the catchphrases sound like they were spat out through predictive text.

30
PopMatters

Lil Pump's ambition apparently goes no further than having one song slip onto a party playlist and make just enough impact people occasionally ask for "that song where the guy says…" having caught the couple of words he's hammered over and over.

25
Consequence of Sound

The Florida rapper’s limited strengths and many weaknesses become highly detectable on Harverd Dropout. Under Pump’s control, the album piles up songs without structure, lines without meaning, and hooks without melody; it’s utterly tasteless.

20
The Young Folks

His newest album, Harverd Dropout, features a provocative tone that could naturally be found on an old Kanye album — just without a thought-provoking narrative. Pump explores the same generic tropes that his contemporaries have used for years (the underdog story, becoming a famous high school/college dropout) and done nothing interesting with them.

OH MY FUCKING GOD πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Im going to bless you guys with a couple of the most ridiculous bars from Lil Pump’s newest album. This shit had me laughing my ass offfff!

“Swallow, don't belch, you just drunk quintuplets”

“And I went to court with a stripper
Popped two Oxys, I feel like Derek Fisher
She say that my bust down look like a blizzard
I just took Viagra and it turned me to a wizard”

“I sip lean in my classroom (Brr)
Ask my teacher, "What ... read more
