Lil Pump Cancels Fall Tour Dates

It's likely the cancelation is due to the rapper's announcement that he's going to jail for "a couple of months."

Lil Pump’s fall tour dates have been canceled, according to Live Nation. The 15-date tour was scheduled to begin tonight in Denver and cross the country before concluding in Los Angeles on Nov. 6. Not all of the dates listed on Live Nation’s website are marked “Canceled,” but a rep for the rapper told Complex: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Lil Pump’s Harverd Dropout Tour has been canceled. Refunds will be provided at point of purchase. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

More illuminating was a note on Instagram from Pump’s friend and collaborator Smokepurpp: “Guys Pump is not officially out yet. He has to go back, but he will be out soon though.”

This very likely refers to Pump’s announcement earlier this month that he’s going to jail for “a couple of months” after being arrested in Miami for driving without a license. The arrest violated his parole from an offense earlier this year in which he fired at gun at his home in Los Angeles. The MC was pulled over late last month when police discovered license plates on his Rolls-Royce actually were from a Mini Cooper.

In a short Instagram post, Pump — wearing no shirt but loaded down with jewelry — told fans, “Listen up y’all, I’m going to get straight to the point. You all saw what happened in Miami, I got arrested or whatever on some bullsh–. I’m on probation in L.A., I violated my [parole] so I’ve got to go in and do a couple of months.”

He added that he has some “crazy ass [music]” dropping during his incarceration and said his team will be handling his social accounts.

Earlier this month Pump was featured on the Kanye West song and video “I Like It.

The “Gucci Gang” rapper, who turned 18 on Aug. 17, had a high profile at the MTV VMAs last month, where he was nominated for Best New Artist, wore a $100,000 outfit to the red carpet, was mocked onstage by comedian Kevin Hart for his face tattoos, and celebrated his birthday with an ostensibly private but packed party at New York’s 1Oak after the show.

Earlier this year, Pump signed a deal with Warner Bros. Records that was reported to be in the $8-12 million range after his earlier contract with the label was voided because he’d signed it when he was a minor.
