Fame comes with its perks. Designers send you clothes, you get invites to all the hottest events and Instagram becomes like a supermarket with people sliding in your DM’s left and right. While the pros are certainly enticing, celebrity life comes with cons that many people rarely consider. Lil Pump looks to be realizing that Hollywood is not always about the glitz and glam as there are more than a handful people who will try to take advantage you. Pump is rarely an intellectual on social media, choosing to flaunt his material belongings on the regular so a vague addition to his Instagram story caught people’s attention.
The Florida superstar wrote a block text for his followers to read as he appears to contemplate who his real friends are and who’s only with him for his money. “I’m going thru it rn,” started Lil Pump, continuing, “I’m starting to notice a lot shit.” After signing an $8 million deal, it is to be expected that some people will switch up on you and pretend to be your best friend. Pump elaborated, “Even ppl that’s close to me doing weird stuff. Idk what to do sometimes dis rap shit comes wit a lot bullshit.”
Although he is not particularly calling anyone out, the mention his day-one friends appears to have brought Pump into a paranoid state. While he may need to consider who he keeps close to him in the future, the rapper continues to work on his next mixtape “Harvard Dropout,” which he has said is near completion. The music video for “ESSKEETIT” is expected to release this week to promote the project.
