Florida rapper Lil Pump had an unexpected run-in with law enforcement this week. New reports claim South Beach cops busted the rap rookie for driving without a valid license.
According to reports, the arrest went down Wednesday (August 30) afternoon in Miami.
3:42 PM PT — According to the police report — obtained by TMZ — officers initiated the stop after discovering the license plate on Pump’s Rolls-Royce actually belonged to a Mini Cooper. When cops asked Pump for a driver’s license, he allegedly told them he’d never had one. 7:54 PM PT — Pump has been released from custody. A source close tells us he was issued a ticket and will not have to appear in court … it’ll be handled by his legal team. (TMZ)
Earlier this year, Pump landed on XXL’s annual Freshman hip-hop newcomers list.
Meet the 2018 XXL Freshman Class! 🏆⭐🔥

Recently, hip-hop veteran Mysonne talked to SOHH about his issues with the annual list.
“My opinion of the XXL Freshman class is it appears to only appeal to one demographic and one particular style and genre of music. It doesn’t appeal to everyone. Most of those artists have similarities. I also think Don Q should definitely be on the Freshman list and you know it is an injustice that he’s not there! He should’ve been there last year but I’ve lost all faith in the XXL Freshman class. There was a time when I just had decided to pretty much boycott it so I’m not surprised at the lack of diversity or lack of what I will call talent in the class.” (SOHH)
