South Florida rapper, Lil Pump, has released his second album titled “Harverd Dropout.” Lil Pump rose to fame when he was 16 years old, sporting pink dreads and making ridiculous songs that got people hype. If you like no lyrical substance, zero meaning behind songs, and you like D Rose, then Pump is your guy. But here we are with his album “Harverd Dropout,” and you can see his glaring limited skill set.

Pump is not an album artist. Simple as that. He is built to drop singles like “Gucci Gang,” “D Rose,” “Drug Addicts,” and so on. I don’t think anyone can go for 40 minutes listening to Pump repeat the same things and actually enjoy it. I like complexity, substance, and diversity. I admit Pump isn’t exactly any of those things, (and neither are a bunch of other rappers), but I always give them a chance. The problem is that the script doesn’t deviate from his prior work. Drugs, girlfriends, more drugs, and school sucks. You can’t expect people to love your album or even like it if it goes for 4o minutes of the same crap.

 

The beats are actually, for the most part, solid. It’s just that he fails to deliver on 90% of them. The shining part of the album is his features. Pump got Offset, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Wayne, YG, Quavo, and 2 Chainz. However, you can see a pretty clear discrepancy between his guest artists and himself. There are also some pretty good hooks on the album is well.

To me, Lil Pump is tasteless. After Mac Miller’s tragic passing, I think the last thing anyone needs to hear is glorified drug use. Yeah we get it, you pop xans and drink lean. That’s awesome. It is tasteless, and does a phenomenal job of not being enticing in the slightest way. Image result for lil pump harverd dropout

Overall I’d give the album a 2/10. The few impressive elements are (which, admittedly, are the OTHER people), are  not enough to save the album.
