After premiering his new single "Racks on Racks" on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio, Lil Pump sat down with the legendary DJ to discuss his highly-anticipated sophomore project HARVERD DROPOUT, but for the most part he was mum on many of the details.
After enough poking and prodding, Pump seemingly caved. "You want a name?" Pump asked. "Lady Gaga. I got Lady Gaga on the album, what's up? It's going down!"
Lady Gaga? As in the most colossal pop artist in the world? In what world would the woman who wrote "Til' It Happens To You" be interested in working with an 18-year-old Soundcloud rapper whose most memorable lyric is "Gucci Gang, Gucci Gang, Gucci Gang, Gucci Gang, Gucci Gang, Gucci Gang?" Considering Pump's penchant for trolling—he recently said science can back up the claim that he is "the most lyrical rapper of all time"—we'll take this announcement with a grain of salt. With that said, is a Lil Pump and Gaga collab something everyone would love to see? Absolutely.
All that aside, Pump's HARVERD DROPOUT is (unfortunately) one of the most talked about projects of 2019. While the album was originally scheduled to drop on September 14th of last year, it was delayed following the rapper's arrest in Miami for driving without a license. The rappers latest single, "Racks on Racks," is raunchy, loud, and stupid, so it's safe to say HARVERD DROPOUT will employ a similar vibe. Check it out below, if you want. Or if you actually enjoy rap, you could listen to G-Herbo's new album.
