Lil Pump – Racks on Racks
During his recent interview with Zane Lowe, Lil Pump sets a hell of a tone, shouting “racks on racks on racks on racks” for what feels like an eternity. In a truly disturbing twist of fate, Zane actually parrot’s Pump’s chant, prompting a chuckle from the self-proclaimed dropout. When asked what makes “Racks On Racks” a notable representation of the Harverd Dropout album, Pump keeps his response on-brand. “This shit fire,” he states. “I was in the crib, high as shit…I was with my boy, and we just started recording. That was the first on that night.”
Pump also teases a surprising collaborator, prompting an incredulous “shut the fuck up” from Zane. “Lady Gaga,” reveals Pump, though we’re not sure if he’s sincere or merely trolling, as per usual. The answer will be revealed come late February, when the project rears its head. As for “Racks On Racks,” the song remains in keeping with Pump’s established formula. With Diablo on the beat, Pump wastes little time in boasting about his wealth, shouting eskettit, and popping percocet like a man with nothing to lose.
In his defense, Pump can ride a beat ably enough, and established fans will likely continue to bump his output without question. Is he able to meet the r
eckless charm once harnassed on “Gucci Gang?” Unlikely. But Pump continues to navigate the game with relative success, proving once again that things that have yet to break, have little reason to be fixed.
