Gucci gang alert!
DJ Khaled has shared his desire to sign Lil Pump to We the Best Music Group after the “Gucci Gang” rapper’s Warner Bros. contract was voided due to the fact that he signed it while he was underage.
Taking to Instagram, Khaled dropped a series of flicks of Pump and his team taking a meeting at his Beverly Hills home. “MOGUL TALK,” he wrote. “STILL IN THE MEETING !!!! I TOLD MY LAWYER THIS IS URGENT !! Let’s get this deal done ! @lilpump @wethebestmusic??? LET THE LAWYERS WORK !!! Great meeting wit @lilpump and his team.”
Recently, Pump’s lawyer John Branca informed Warner Bros. that his deal would be nullified due to the fact that he was 16 at the time of the signing, as per Billboard. The burgeoning rapper, now 17 years old, is courting different labels now, along with Tha Global Lights, an entertainment company that’s been vital to his success.
In his young age, Pump has amassed quite a following. He has 8.8 million followers on Instagram, 799,000 followers on Twitter, and 1.1 million followers on Facebook. His breakout single “Gucci Gang” recently went platinum and peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100. It’s even been parodied by “Saturday Night Live.”
