Miami’s Lil Pump, an up-and-rising rapper from the Soundcloud viral wave, spares no enthusiasm in his self-titled debut project, displaying his strengths through a string of straightforward songs that are filled with simple, infectious hooks combined with aggressive yet focused productions. However, though it is hard to find a dull moment on this project, its simplicity and repetition make it feel shallow. Some highlights: the addictive “Gucci Gang,” the filthy “Smoke My Dope” with Miami rapper Smokepurpp, and the headbanger “Back” with Lil Yachty. Overall, Lil Pump’s debut is a good go-to for anyone looking for an extra pump, nothing more.
