Childhood & Early Life :

Gazzy Garcia was born on August 17, 2000, in Miami, Florida, to a Cuban mother and a Mexican father. He was raised in a lower-middle-class neighborhood, which contributed to his violent demeanor. He got into a lot of fights in school and was never a well-behaved student.  Lil soon became addicted to narcotics. His academic performance suffered as a result of his frequent strong marijuana use.

He was a con artist who was expelled from nearly every school he attended as a youngster. He has once severely beaten a female. In another instance, he instigated a brawl at school, which resulted in his expulsion.

The school was closed down as a result of the riot he started. The police were forced to intervene to bring the rioters under control. He soon began distributing narcotics. He was willing to take part in rap music but never imagined himself making a career out of it. He mostly paid attention to Chief Keef.

When he was 13, he formed a friendship with a teenage music producer named Smokepurpp. Smokepurpp was introduced to him by one of his relatives. They frequently become friends via drugs and other criminal activities. Lil Pump was soon captivated by Smokepurpp's sound.

He had dropped out of school by the time he was 15 years old. Because he was near to Smokepurpp, he began attending recording studios more frequently.

Career :

As Lil Pump became increasingly involved in the music production process, he formed a gang alongside Smokepurpp and began engaging in unlawful actions like as beating up individuals and breaking into residences. Lil eventually decided to teach himself how to compose music. Despite working hard on his tracks, he had difficulty finding artists willing to use his songs.
Pump decided to make freestyle music since he couldn't locate acceptable artists or lyrics. Smokepurpp was impressed by what he heard and inspired Pump to compose his own raps. Pump first rejected such recommendations, but eventually decided to go forward with them.

The resulting track, titled 'Lil Pump,' was released on 'SoundCloud.' The song quickly became viral on the platform. This prompted them to release numerous additional songs, including 'Elementary,' 'Ignorant,' 'Gang Shit,' and 'Drum$tick.' These singles each received millions of "views." They grew optimistic about a prosperous future in rap music.

Lil Pump rose to prominence in the South Florida underground rap scene as a result of his success. His music exemplified 'SoundCloud Rap,' a phrase coined by listeners in response to the increasing number of rap artists submitting their work to the site. Pump was invited to join in the 'No Jumper tour in 2016 as a result of his success on 'SoundCloud.' He also took part in the 'Rolling Loud Festival.'

Pump released two singles in 2017 titled 'D Rose' and 'Boss,' both of which smashed all of his prior records. They have had over 70 million hits on 'SoundCloud.' Because of their growing fame, a Chicago-based director called Cole Bennett volunteered to produce music videos for them for free.

In early 2017, the music video for 'D Rose' was released. Within a year, it has received over 140 million views on 'YouTube.' Several record labels had approached Lil Pump by that point. He joined Warner Bros Records and Tha Lights Global.

Previously, in mid-2017, Lil stated that he was working on his debut studio album, which was set to be released later that year. The album was planned to be released in August, however, it was postponed. He released a song called 'Gucci Gang' in August, which became his first significant breakout success single.

The single was released on 'SoundCloud' in late August and quickly became his biggest hit. It peaked at number three on the 'Billboard Hot 100' list. Although the song was financially successful, it was widely panned, particularly for its repetitious character. Several parodies of the song have been created and posted on various social media platforms.
