Lil Pump

“My music is just saying reckless shit on a song but going with the flow so they’re still going to fuck with it,” Lil Pump told Noisey in an interview last month. When I hear rappers like Lil Pump and a bunch of these other self-proclaimed “ignorant” trappers like the ones that showed up at Mala Luna, I can’t help but think this is our fault. We did this. America doesn’t want substance anymore, we want a quick fix; so spouting out nonsense lyrics with tired references to pills and strippers over cadences that actually could have thoughtful lyrics are preferred ‘cause these rappers know we’re just trying to vibe. Hip-hop is dead, welcome Lil Pump ... OK, hip-hop isn’t dead, but this ain’t hip-hop, and I know I just sound old but this mumble rap shit reminds me of how corny nu-metal got in the early 2000s after exhausting all their own sounds. I promise, we’re gonna look back 15 years from now and be embarrassed that this shit was in our Spotify playlists. But if you dig this stuff, you’re gonna have a blast at this show. $30-$105, 9pm, 1305 E. Houston St., alamocitymusichall.com. – CC
