Lil Pump Claims He Retired From Rap To Be An Astronaut

Lil Pump has declared that his days of making music are allegedly over with and that he’s looking to take off as a bonafide astronaut. The “Gucci Gang” artist took to social media this week to share his hilarious declaration. Coincidentally, he was on an airplane when he made the announcement.

“PSA, PSA,” he began. “I will not be making music anymore. I retire. I’m finna to be an astronaut. Bye.”

Whether or not Lil Pump is serious or not, no one would be surprised if he pops up in a spacecraft with Elon Musk on his next trek into a galaxy, far, far away.

Lil Pump has had a variety of wild moments during the first half of 2023. In May, he took to Instagram in a now-deleted post to show off a new tattoo which included a star and some tribal finishing.

In that same month, the “I Love It” rapper was accused of committing a fashionable offense by allegedly copying Lil Uzi Vert’s style with an emo look.

He posted a picture of himself with straightened jet-black hair and one-half of his face covered by it. He also wore all-black attire. “Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful moms out there [pink heart emoji],” he wrote in his caption.

Once RapTV reposted the picture on Instagram, many IG users went in on Pump’s eccentric new look, comparing it to Uzi’s emo-inspired appearance.

“Bro think he Uzi,” one person wrote, while someone else said: “He’s been tryna copy Uzi for 6 damn years now.” A third person added: “He’s officially gone past the point of no return.”

But through all of his antics in his career, Lil Pump told Complex in April that he doesn’t get an ounce of hate in real life.

“More people love me than hate me,” Pump said. “And I’ma say this right now: everybody who talks shit in my comments – every single body – I have never to this day seen one person walk up to me and say that shit to my face. Everything is on the internet. Nobody has ever walked up to my face and said nothing crazy. So this shit’s not even real. It’s fake to me.”

He continued: “I see thousands of comments, everybody talking shit. But you see me in person, the first thing everybody does is, ‘Oh Pump, let me get a picture!’ Like, it’s all love. They don’t ever say crazy shit to my face. But it is what it is. I’m just making music to have fun. And if I piss you off, I piss you off. Oh well.”
