Florida rapper Lil Pump is swimming in money. The hip-hop newcomer has reportedly landed a huge $8 million deal with Warner Bros. Records.
According to reports, the teenage musician is back with the major company after a recent falling out.
This is the second round of trying to get a valid contract between Warner Bros. Records and Pump. The first contract was invalid because it was never validated by the court and he’s a minor — 17 years old. According to the contract, Warner Bros. Records agrees to pay Pump an $8 million advance, and then $9,000 for the first year, $12k for the second and $15k for the 3rd through 7th contract years. (TMZ)
Pump has since come forward to confirm the $8 million deal and clarify its terms.
“Man, I don’t know where y’all heard all that other bullsh*t. I got $8 million for one project and that’s it! I see y’all pretty mad but your favorite artists ain’t getting 8 million for a project.”

Over the weekend, Pump credited himself and rap trio Migos for running the rap game.
“Migos and Lil Pump run the culture. And if you feel some type of way suck my d**k. I guess y’all feel some type of way. Suck my d**k.”
