Career

Career beginnings (2016)

Garcia's rapping career began when Smokepurpp produced a track and asked Garcia to freestyle over it with a headphone microphone. The single that was produced was later independently released as his debut single, "Lil Pump", onto the music streaming website SoundCloud in 2016.[11] The song was quickly followed with the singles "Elementary", "Ignorant", "Gang Shit", and "Drum$tick", which have each individually earned over three million streams.[12] The success of Garcia's tracks on SoundCloud earned him recognition among the South Florida underground rap scene, in a style colloquially referred to as "SoundCloud rap", and was also featured on the 2016 No Jumper tour.[13][14]

Rising popularity (2017–present)

Garcia began 2017 by releasing the singles "D Rose" and "Boss", which were major hits on SoundCloud, collecting a combined 70 million streams.[12] The popularity of "D Rose" led to a music video being produced by Chicago based director Cole Bennett. The music video was released on YouTube on January 30, 2017, and has gained 64 million views as of October 2017.[15] On June 9, 2017, Garcia signed a record deal with Tha Lights Global and Warner Bros. Records, just two months before his seventeenth birthday.[16]

In July 2017, it was announced on Garcia's Twitter account that his debut album was in the works and would be released in August.[17] Although the album was not released in August, Garcia instead released the song "Gucci Gang", eventually becoming Garcia's first Billboard Hot 100 entry, peaking at number seven on November 8, 2017.[18][19]

On October 6, 2017, Garcia released his debut commercial mixtape, Lil Pump, featuring Smokepurpp, Gucci Mane, Lil Yachty, Chief Keef, Rick Ross, and 2 Chainz.[20]
