Lil Pump has announced that his sophomore album, Lil Pump 2, which serves as the sequel to his debut album of the same name, is set to drop later this month.
On Friday (March 10), the Florida rap star took to Instagram to share the tracklisting and cover art for the project as well as reveal that it will land on streaming services next Friday (March 17).
The album’s colorful cover art showcases Lil Pump’s notable tattoos and disheveled hair that spells out: “LP2.”
The new 16-track project will feature guest appearances from NBA Youngboy, Smokepurpp, Ty Dolla $ign, and more. “LIL PUMP 2 ABLUM MARCH 17th,” he wrote in the post’s caption. “LOVE YALL ESSKEETIT.”
The first installment, 2017’s Lil Pump, features his breakthrough hit, “Gucci Gang,” and helped launch the rapper into superstardom. Lil Pump 2 was initially expected in January, but after the rapper lost the album’s hard-drive last year during a visit to the lake, he had to make other plans.
In November, the Miami native took to his Instagram Stories to make a plea to his fans to help him find the project after losing the hard-drive it was on. “Guys I lost my hard-drive to LP2. I lost it in the middle of a lake,” Pump said in the clip. “I can’t find it. Can you please help me find it? Please help me. Please!”
Despite the commercial success of his debut album, which entered the charts at No. 3 with first-week sales of 45,000 album-equivalent units, and was later certified gold by the RIAA. His more recent effort, December 2021’s No Name with producer Ronny J, didn’t fare as well however, failing to chart on the Billboard 200.
In an interview with Bootleg Kev this past October, Pump discussed J. Cole’s prediction of sorts about the colorful-haired rapper’s decline following the breakout success of his “Gucci Gang” single. Pump doesn’t see a decline at all, and pointed to the homes he owns as proof.
“Nope,” he said when Kev asked if he felt Cole was right. “Because I’m still here. I got two houses … I don’t think he predicted shit.”
Cole seemingly came for Pump on his KOD album cut “1985 (Intro to ‘The Fall Off’)” in 2018, dismissing SoundCloud rappers as novelty acts who ought to heed his advice.
“One day, them kids that’s listening gon’ grow up/ And get too old for that shit that made you blow up/ Now your show’s lookin’ light cause they don’t show up/ Which unfortunately means the money slow up,” Cole raps on the track.
He ends with: “Just remember what I told you when your shit flop/ In five years you gon’ be on ‘Love & Hip-Hop,’ n-gga.” The pair have since settled their issues.
