Gazzy Garcia (born August 17, 2000), known professionally as Lil Pump, is an American, rapper, singer, record producer, and songwriter. Garcia is known for his hyperactive public persona, where he is often portrayed taking drugs, particularly marijuana, lean and Xanax;[7][8][9] he is also known for shouting his catchphrase "Esskeetit" (a shortened version of "Let's get it"). He can often be seen on social media engaging in unwise behavior.[10] Garcia was named as one of the 30 Under 30 by Forbes in 2019.[11]

Lil Pump rose to popularity in 2017, after he released his song "Gucci Gang", which peaked at number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and is certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.[12] He has since released other songs, including "I Love It" (with Kanye West), "Esskeetit", "Drug Addicts", "Butterfly Doors", ”Racks on Racks", and “Be Like Me” (featuring Lil Wayne).[13] He released his debut studio album, Lil Pump, in October 2017. His song "Welcome to the Party" was featured in the soundtrack for Deadpool 2.[14] He released his second studio album Harverd Dropout on February 22, 2019.
