Lil Pump is an artist I've never been the biggest fan of ever since his breakthrough in late 2017 with 'Gucci Gang'.
To me, that was a bad sign that this kind of Hip-Hop would become a trend to follow, and it did for a while.
Fast forward to 2023, and we get Lil Pump 2... a record that's nothing short of musical devolvement.
What we've got here is 39mins of Trap / Rap that is mostly devoid of character, charm, wit, innovation or anything of entertainment value whatsoever.
I ain't keen on the constant cliché driven lyricism that derives from this genre; spending money on expensive shit, sex talk, bragging about driving Teslas and drug / pill popping.
The production is nothing special either, being heavily reliant on the same Trap beats that he became famous from. Not to mention the quality of the beats are shite, as well as the bass synths in the background feel stock in terms of how cheap they sound.
Don't get me started on 'Pump Rock x Heavy Metal' either. The idea of Lil Pump attempting a punk track is about as intelligent as JELEEL attempting a power ballad, it would never work.
Lil Pump 2 is just a sign that the Floridian rapper has no signs of evolving or releasing anything innovative these days, being heavily reliant on past tropes 6 years into his one-hit-wonder career.
Don't waste your time, unless you want a laugh (even that's short lived)!
