The "Gucci Gang" rapper was underage when he signed the deal and it was never certified by the court, sources tell Billboard.
Lil Pump and his camp have voided the "Gucci Gang" rapper's contract with Warner Bros. Records on grounds he was underage when he signed the deal and it was never certified by the court.
Pump was only 16 when he signed with Warner and now sources tell Billboard that attorney John Branca recently sent a letter to Warner Bros. on Lil Pump's behalf pointing out the age and certification issue, asserting that it nullifies the deal. Todd Rubenstein, the attorney for Pump's team Tha Lights Global, is also involved in negotiations, Billboard understands.
As a free agent, the "Gucci Gang" rapper would be well positioned for offers from other labels or to even strike out as an independent. The breakout single peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and No. 2 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts last month, and his self-titled debut album -- released on Tha Lights Global/Warner Bros. -- launched at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, moving 46,000 equivalent album units in its first week, according to Nielsen Music.
