It's kinda crazy how many stories seem to be written about Lil Pump that have to do with the his extensive jewelry collection. It should come as no surprise to anyone at this point that the 18 year-old "I Love It" rapper likes to spend quite a bit of coin on his collection of chains, watches and rings, and is in no way modest when it comes to showing them off.
At this point, though, Pump seems to be using his crazy spending habits as a marketing ploy; even taking to posting videos of him dripping in $300,000 worth of chains while destroying his Rolls-Royce car, with a caption plugging his album drop.
If that wasn't enough to remind fans just how little money means to him, Pump also posted a video of himself a year ago, blowing his nose on a $100 bill because - well just because.
You'd think that with the recent scare the young rapper had after nearly losing his 100K ring on a golf field, he would ease up on the spending a little bit. But in true Pump fashion, he continues to make extravagant purchases, his most recent being: a $15,000 pair of custom Cartier glasses.
The video posted of the rapper on Instagram shows him sporting the bejeweled pair of glasses fit with red lenses to match his hair and nails. "So, guess what I just did... I just dropped $15K on some Cartier shades because I'm bored as f**k," he shared with fans.
Lil Pump Declares "No One Has Done What I’ve Done At Da Age Of 18"
The teen rapper flexes his status in the rap game.
Lil Pump has never minced words when it comes to stating his greatness. He once professed that he’s the reason SoundCloud exists and instead of always showing off his luxury vehicles, he sometimes destroys them while wearing hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry. The 18-year-old artist recently took to his Instagram Story to talk about his accomplishments, saying that when it comes to the rap game, he is set apart from the others because he’s done more than they have at such a young age.
“Nobody has done what I’ve done at da age of 18 I’ve broke records on YouTube, platinum records,” he wrote. “So suck my d*ck,” he says, ending the message with a smiley face. Because of his outlandish personality, Pump has become a young artist that many love to hate. Although his words may be a hard pill to swallow, there is a tad bit of truth to his madness.
Social media often focuses on his Instagram videos where he shows off his expensive grillz, makes fun of women who leave their wigs at his house after staying overnight, or loses his high-priced jewelry while Top Golf-ing with his friends, but the teenager topping the charts. His 2017 hit “Gucci Gang” is a certified platinum success and the accompanying video is right around the corner from reaching one billion views on YouTube. Pump’s debut record Lil Pump and his follow-up Harverd Dropout both debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at No. 3 and No. 7, respectively.
Responding to the criticism of his post, Pump uploaded a video where he says, “Ay, and all you old b*tches hatin’, talking ’bout you was doing that at 18…none of you f*ckers was doing that sh*t at 18. Half of y’all n*ggas working at McDonald’s and Burger King at 18, b*tch. I am a multi-millionaire. Okay.” Then the young rapper brags about spending $15K on Cartier glasses because he says “I’m bored as f*ck.”
James Harden Parties With Lil Pump & Smokepurpp In Miami After Rockets Loss
Harden is already trying to forget his recent playoff failure.
Despite missing out on the services of Kevin Durant, the Golden State Warriors were able to knock off the Houston Rockets in Game 6 of their second-round series last Friday. The game was seen as a huge failure for James Harden who has been a labeled a playoff choker over the last few seasons. With Durant out of the lineup, everyone expected the Rockets to win Game 6 and Game 7, although it clearly wasn’t meant to be. The Warriors now have a great opportunity to head back to the NBA Finals as they’ll be taking on the Portland Trail Blazers in the next round.
With his recent loss suppressed deep inside his mind, Harden decided to travel to Miami where he partied it up at a local nightclub with some of the hottest Florida rappers out there, according to TMZ. Of course, those two artists are Smokepurpp and Lil Pump, who were showing off their ice while dancing to some hits with the Rockets star. Harden was also seen flexing with none other than Adrien Broner, who took a break from losing to Manny Pacquiao to make a public appearance.
Harden will have a whole summer to get this loss out of his system so that maybe the Rockets can finish off the Warriors next year.

Lil Pump & Lil Xan’s Producer Diablo In Handcuffs After Suicide Scare
Diablo has been accounted for after fans were worried he had harmed himself.
Yesterday, popular producer Diablo posted an alarming message on his social media pages, informing fans that he had had enough of the industry trying to force him to be somebody that he’s not, saying goodbye to everyone and implying that he was going to commit suicide. The note thanks his mother for supporting him and it blames his critics and the music industry for his declining mental health. Shortly after he uploaded the message, everybody from Paris Hilton, Diplo, Lil Pump, and more reached out to make sure he was doing alright. Lil Xan told everybody that he wouldn’t let anything happen to his best friend and now, TMZ has confirmed that the producer has been detained by police and placed on a 5150 hold.
On his Instagram story, Diablo appeared in tears as he was being handcuffed by the police, speaking directly to his wide audience. Somebody likely saw the suicide note online and asked the police to perform a wellness check on Diablo. There is reportedly no word on his current condition but a typical 5150 hold lasts for 72 hours. After that, it will be determined if the patient requires additional help to prevent them from harming themselves.
We’re praying that Diablo is able to power through and find happiness.
Lil Skies Falls Off Stage While On Tour With Lil Pump
Lil Skies kept his composure and got right back up.
Sometimes, performers get a little carried away. We’ve all witnessed so many amazing feats from different artists during their concerts. From Kanye West‘s elaborate stage design to Lil Uzi Vert literally jumping off a building at Rolling Loud 2018, there is some crazy stuff that goes down at hip-hop shows. Travis Scott invites the ragers and Blueface dances around with a mop. This week, rappers have not had the best luck when it comes to their balance on stage. We previously reported on Young M.A taking a little tumble during her recent show and it appears as though Lil Skies suffered the same fate in Minnesota.

Currently on tour with Lil Pump, Skies is used to performing in front of thousands of his diehard fans. Having just released a new album this year, he’s clearly excited to be performing new music for the crowd and he ended up getting a little overzealous, losing his footing and stepping right off the stage a few days ago. Thankfully, it was all captured on video. The moment Skies takes an extra step is seen as he’s rapping when, in an instant, he falls out of the frame and starts laughing on the mic. Once he regains his composure, he puts on a big smile and is helped back up before telling the audience how grateful he is that his first time falling off the stage was in Minnesota.
Memories have officially been made. Skies is a true professional. Watch the video below.

Justin Bieber Calls Out Eminem For Lil Pump & Lil Xan Disses
Justin Bieber says he likes Eminem’s flow but doesn’t agree with his criticism of new rappers.
Eminem is widely viewed as one of the greatest of all time and usually, when somebody decides to criticize him, they’re bound to get a few bars on Marshall’s next project. It’s unclear when (or if) Eminem is thinking of dropping his next album but after this, Justin Bieber may see his name included in some diss lyrics.
The pop star took to Instagram to voice his opinion on Slim Shady, telling fans that he’s a fan of his music but not of how he’s spoken about newer rappers. Posting a screenshot of himself listening to “The Ringer” off of Kamikaze, Biebs decided to put in his two cents. “I just like Em’s flow but don’t like that he’s dissing new rappers I like the new generation of rap he just doesn’t understand it.”

In the song, Eminem calls out a few rappers by name, like Lil Xan and Lil Pump. It quickly became one of the more popular songs from the album because of the topics Em explored, dissing mumble rap to shreds. Bieber has already been mentioned in Em’s lyrics and he may earn himself another mention after this.
This is bound to get controversial. Should Justin Bieber even be allowed to have an opinion on this? That’s up to you guys to judge. Let us know how you feel about Bieber’s remarks in the comments.
Smokepurpp, Lil Pump & Gucci Mane Are Working On "Gucci Gang" Full-Length Project
The “Gucci Gang” group project is in the works according to Smokepurpp.
It took a while for the truth to settle in, but the “Gucci Gang” misprint was no misprint it. Furthermore, Lil Pump, Gucci Mane, and Smokepurpp are dead set on turning on parlaying their touring efforts into a full-length group project. Smokepurpp revealed the group’s intentions in an interview with Beats 1 Radio host Travis Mills. “It is safe to say that there’s a Gucci Gang project on the way and that we’re already working on it,” he said during this afternoon’s broadcast. “We already have mad songs in the vault.”
Purpp’s was startling, to say the least, due to bust-up that occurred February when he challenged Lil Pump’s sovereign claim to “Gucci Gang,” the song from which the group’s name is evidently derived. But that was before they formed like Voltron at Coachella 2019. “It was lit!” Purpp admitted. “It was crazy. I felt like our set was memorable.”
For the sake of upholding the truth, it’s worth noting that Lil Pump and Smokepurrp did eventually bury the hatchet. Pump wasn’t asked to relinquish his ownership privileges of “Gucci Gang,” and he sure as hell wasn’t barred from contributing to Purpp’s long-anticipated Deadstar 2 project. If anything, they’ve been playing us for fools with all this backhanded commentary. The same can be said for “Three Stooges” in the heyday of slapstick comedy. Of course, Gucci Mane will certainly put them in their place, if ever the recording process reaches such a low point.
Lil Pump Claims Damian Lillard Status After Hitting Clutch Shot
There’s no way he made this shot on his first try.
This week, Damian Lillard hit a shot that will go down as one of the most iconic moments in his career. There are those specific landmarks that we look at with great athletes to revisit the times they proved they were above the rest of us. With Michael Jordan, you can use his flu game. Kobe Bryant’s 81-point outing against the Toronto Raptors is also implanted in our memories. For Dame Dolla, his shot to send Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder packing will always be a reminder of just how clutch the Portland guard is. Apparently, Florida-based rapper Lil Pump has the same skills on the court in late-game situations — or at least that’s what he’s claiming — because he just posted a video fo himself making a wild shot off a trampoline bounce, freaking out afterwards.

In reality, there is a very slim chance that the rapper made this shot on his first try. He likely attempted dozens of times before finally landing it. Regardless, it’s still pretty cool that the Harverd Dropout actually sank the dagger. He picked up some nice air before taking his shot and watching it fly into the basket, which was located pretty far away. Once he made the shot, he proclaimed, “In there, bitch! In there, stop fucking playing with me!” In his caption, he compared himself to Damian Lillard.
Who else would pay to see an actual one-on-one battle between Dame Lillard and Lil Pump? Watching Lillard break Pump’s ankles would surely bring joy to many.
