Lil Pump might’ve pulled the biggest finesse of 2018 and possibly the biggest finesse in the history of Hip-Hop. Due to a technicality the Florida rapper is now out of his contract with his former label Warner Bros., who paid the teen a $345,000 advance on his debut album back in December.
The underage Gucci Gang rapper was only 16 when he signed the contract and it was never certified by the courts, which caused the deal to be null and void. Attorney, John Branca, sent a letter to Warner Bros. on behalf of Lil Pump pointing out his age and certification of the issue, revealing that is cancels out the contract. Todd Ruebenstein, who’s the attorney for Lil Pump’s team The Lights Global is also involved in negotiations.
Lil Pump is now being offered deals from other labels but for now the young rapper is an independent artist. Pump could be an asset to any company that comes with ‘the bag’ for his single Gucci Gang hit No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 2 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs last week.
#GucciGang rapper #LilPump is currently in a bidding war with labels for $8-12 million due to #WarnerBrothersRecords signing him while he was underage. The $300,000 advance he received from them he doesn't have to pay back because the contract was null and void! Now that's what you call free bands! #LilPumpTheFinesseKid
