While Lil Pump might not be as popular as he used to be in 2017 and 2018, he appears to still wield influence among rowdy festival crowds like the one up at the Metro Metro Festival in Montreal.
Pump posted a semi-viral clip where he invites a handicapped fan on stage during his set. The fan then takes things to the next level, performing wild stunts like a somersault and handstand push-ups, all while Pump performs his 2017 smash "D Rose."
Turns out the star of the show goes by Woody Belfort (on social media at least) and he has nearly 113k TikTok followers. "Brooo that's me homieee," he commented on the video.
Pump has earned millions of views on TikTok and over 4.3 million followers since 2020. Reflecting the fact that social media stardom doesn't always lead to consumption of an artist's music, Pump's last album, 'No Name' with Florida producer Ronny J, didn't even crack the Billboard 200.
At 21 years old, Pump's career has already taken a lot of twists and turns. One of the most unforgettable is when he sat down with J. Cole for an interview in 2018 and had to tell him to his face how he and Smokepurpp came up with the infamous "f**k J. Cole" trend.
"We were sitting in a room one day and I seen that s**t in my comments, people were like, "F**k J. Cole," he said.
Sadly, Pump and a collection of hip-hop fans are mourning the loss of Florida rapper ohtrapstar, who was Pump's cousin. He died in a car crash last week. The 23-year-old was most widely known for his wavy 2017 track "Choppa," which earned hella spins among Fortnite players.
"Choppa on me, f**k a Smith & Wesson / Keep my weapon, heavy weapon!" he raps on the hook. "Rip ohtrapstar never forget playing fort to your music in 2018," one fan remembered.
