Lil Pump came out of nowhere, and is now looking to claim 2018 as his year. The Chief Keef-influenced rapper, who hails from Miami, received a huge budget to make his debut album “Lil Pump” possible.
Pump received a $345k advance from Warner Bros. on his debut album, which doesn’t include his 15 percent royalties, TMZ reports.
TMZ reports the success of Pump’s debut album could earn him another six-figure advance from Warner Bros.
One of the conditions of Pump’s contract is having at least 14 songs per album. If Pump continues his reign of hit songs, he could make up to $500K on his fifth album.
Pump released his self-titled debut album “Lil Pump” in October. He sold 45,166 copies of his project in his opening week, with 7,044 copies coming from traditional sales.
Pump’s album even made the top 10 on Billboard 200 chart, and currently sits at no. 19.
Pump’s project features 15 tracks with guest appearances from Lil Yachty, Gucci Mane, Chief Keef, 2 Chainz and more. Production on the LP comes from CBMix, FadedBlackid, Trapphones, Bighead & Gnealz, Ronny J, 217 and more.
