Last week, Lil Pump’s Harverd Dropout tour was canceled “due to unforeseen circumstances,” the Florida rapper still has two performances left this year before he heads to jail. Breakaway Music Festival confirmed on social media and via a press release that Pump will be performing on Oct. 5 in Nashville and Oct. 13 in Charlotte.
In a message on Instagram last week, Pump’s childhood friend and frequent collaborator Smokepurpp suggested the “Gucci Gang” rapper still had time left on his jail sentence for violating his probation. “He has to go back, but he will be out soon though,” Purpp said on Instagram.
It's unclear if Pump spent any time in jail over the past month, as he previously told fans on Instagram, before his SNL performance of “I Love It” alongside Kanye over the weekend. "Y'all seen what happened in Miami," he said in a video from Sept. 3. "I got arrested...I'm on probation in LA. I violated my PO, so I've got to go in and do a couple months. I've got some crazy ass shit dropping while in there."
The scrapped 15-date tour is a huge L for the 18-year-old. He was expected to bag roughly $70,000 per show, resulting in the loss of more than $1 million. “Refunds will be provided at point of purchase,” his rep told Complex. “We apologize for any inconvenience."
A rep for Breakaway Fest confirmed these will be Pump's last performances before the rapper heads to jail. We've reached out to the rapper's team for clarification on his legal situation.
Distraught fans who will eagerly await Pump's release can find some solace in these limited edition, pink vinyls of his self-titled debut project. There's only 2,000 copies and they'll be available on Nov. 9. You can pre-order a copy here.
