Lil Pump is looking to capitalize on the momentum he garnered from the viral moment when Donald Trump mistakenly referred to him as “Lil Pimp” before bringing him onstage at a Michigan rally. Pump returned on Wednesday (November 18) flexing his MAGA hat with the Ronny J-produced single “LIL Pimp Big MAGA Steppin.”
Between the word repetition and similar energetic flow, the Florida native clearly wants to replicate the magic he captured with his biggest hit to date in “Gucci Gang,” which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 upon its release. Pump goes for shock value when bringing up the militant Islamist group ISIS and then attacking President-Elect Joe Biden.
“Fuck a bad bitch, send her back to ISIS, uh/Look at all my diamonds, they bitin’,” he raps. “Got a Rolls truck with no license, ooh/And I’m screamin’ out ‘Fuck Sleepy Joe.”
The track did draw the ire of social media and some people took to Twitter to express their outrage at Pump’s publicity stunt.
“It’s lame as fuck at this point,” one user wrote. “This n-gga didn’t even vote; his music not bringing in enough money so he got the check from Donald. Shoulda stayed in college.”

In October, Pump endorsed Trump for president and slammed a version of Biden’s proposed tax plan.
“All I gotta say is Trump 2020 bitch” he said. “Fuck I look like paying a extra 33 is tax for Biden, bitch ass n-gga. Fuck sleepy Joe n-gga Trump 2020 bitch.”

Regardless of his Trump fandom, The Smoking Gun discovered Pump — born Gazzy Garcia — isn’t a registered voter in his home state of Florida.
A supervisor for the Miami-Dade County Elections Department later confirmed the findings.
