(AllHipHop Rumors) Lil Pump made waves in 2017 after the release of his platinum selling "Gucci Gang" single. The single became so popular that he was even parodied on an episode of NBC's Saturday Night Live.
Lil Pump signed a record deal with Warner Bros. before "Gucci Gang" would take over radio stations throughout the nation. They deal paid off big time for helping the rapper gain exposure and expand his listening audience.
However, there was only one problem with the deal and that was the rapper's age. Lil Pump was only 16 at the time of the deal making him a minor and the contract was never certified by the court.
The underage rapper was free to void the contract after this information became public knowledge. This helped the recently named 2018 XXL Freshman become one of Hip-Hop/Rap's biggest free agents.
Rappers and label heads across the country have been trying to sign the rapper since he hit the market again. 1017 Records head Gucci Mane even expressed his intentions of trying to sign the "Gucci Gang" Rapper.
Recently, DJ Khaled posted a picture of himself and Lil Pump announcing his intentions to try and sign him to his label.
"MOGUL TALK!! STILL IN THE MEETING !!!! I TOLD MY LAWYER THIS IS URGENT !! Let’s get this deal done," said DJ Khaled.
DJ Khaled would continue to express his sentiments and aspiration to sign Lil Pump to his We The Best record label.
"@lilpump @wethebestmusic??? LET THE LAWYERS WORK !!! Great meeting wit @lilpump and his team @DooneyThaLights @Abond15 @TimThaLights @ThaLightsGlobal BLESS UP !! AFTER YOU READ THIS POST MORE PICS OF THE MEETING UP NEXT !" continued DJ Khaled.
Do you think Lil Pump will be DJ Khaled’s next big artist?
