Earlier this month (Sept. 3), Lil Pump claimed he would be going to jail for a “couple months” following a parole violation after getting arrested in Miami (Aug. 29) for operating a vehicle without a driver’s license. Now, it looks like Kanye West is looking to support the freedom of his “I Love It” collaborator with a possible “Free Pump” merchandise collection.
The Chicago native teased the YEEZY-printed shirts on Instagram Sunday night (Sept. 16). Kanye posted a conversation with frequent design collaborator Cali Thornhill DeWitt surrounding a few ideas he had for an “I Love It” collection. The shirts are emblazoned with the Lil Pump-assisted track’s artwork and raunchy lyrics.
Next, West instructs DeWitt to create some merchandise calling for the freedom of the 18-year-old rapper. “Let’s add ‘FREE PUMP’ merch,” he wrote. “Lil Pump is in jail. We should make tees that say, ‘Free Pump.'” It’s still unconfirmed is the “Gucci Gang” artist is indeed locked up, but his recent Instagram posts claim to be coming from his management team. Billboard has reached out to Pump’s reps for comment.
