"Lil Pump 2" Album: Rapper Collabs With NBA YoungBoy, Ty Dolla $ign, And More
Gucci Gang rapper Lil Pump released his long-awaited third studio album, Lil Pump 2 this weekend. The project features the high-energy trap music that the rapper is known for, along with a few surprises. Among them is "Pump Rock x Heavy Metal," a rock song that features metal elements. There are also guest appearances from artists like YoungBoy Never Broke Again, Rio Da Yung OG, Smokepurpp, Ty Dolla Sign, and G4 Boyz. The new release speaks about the subjects you'd expect from Pump: drugs, women, money, and guns.
Musically, LP2 is similar to his previous work as most of the songs have a catchy hook, a heavy, hard-hitting baseline, and strong 808s. It's worth noting that this project, like his past releases, has its high and low moments. "I Don't Mind" featuring YoungBoy Never Broke Again is widely considered one of the best songs on the album, while the aforementioned "Pump Rock x Heavy Metal" was met with more trepidation. Thus far, the reception to Lil Pump 2 has been mixed. While some fans are enjoying the 16-track effort, others feel like it's more hit or miss.
Lil Pump 2 is Here
Lil Pump has been working on this album since 2019, completely dedicating himself to the follow-up to his 2017 self-titled project. In 2022 the artist made a since-deleted Instagram post hinting at LP2's existence. At the time he teased, "'Lil Pump 2' is a masterpiece I can't wait for you guys to hear it."
Additionally, the 22-year-old made reference to it in an interview with Inked Magazine last year, claiming that the album would be released in August 2022. He said, "Yessirski! It's dropping in August around my birthday. It's about to be crazy. This is gonna be a masterpiece." Lil Pump 2 is a solid reminder to the public of who he is and what he's capable of.
