Just days after Gucci Mane offered to sign the rising South Florida rapper, DJ Khaled’s done the same, telling the world he wants the teenager on his We the Best Music Group . Uploading a picture of himself with Pump to Instagram, Khalid made it clear signing the teenage rapper is a top priority.
“MOGUL TALK!!” Khaled began in the caption for his post. “STILL IN THE MEETING !!!! I TOLD MY LAWYER THIS IS URGENT !! Let’s get this deal done ! @lilpump @wethebestmusic??? LET THE LAWYERS WORK !!! Great meeting wit @lilpump and his team @DooneyThaLights @Abond15 @TimThaLights @ThaLightsGlobal BLESS UP !! AFTER YOU READ THIS POST MORE PICS OF THE MEETING UP NEXT ! 📸”
Back in December, it was reported that Lil Pump had signed a Warner Bros. recording contract to create five albums and receive a $345,000 advance. However, a month later it was revealed that, because he was a minor, the documents hadn’t been ratified, and the contract was subsequently voided.
Lil Pump is a free agent—and he should be a coveted one. Few rappers have risen through the ranks of success like Lil Pump, whose single “Gucci Gang” was certified platinum on Jan. 11.
