Lil Pump Announces Release Date For Song With Asian Racial Slurs
Lil Pump still hasn’t released his Harverd Dropout project, which was supposed to drop a year ago. Perhaps this is a sign that it could be coming soon. The Florida rapper remained relevant through his use of social media last year as he didn’t release much new music. Other than “I Love It,” 2018 was somewhat of a quiet year for Jetski. A few weeks ago, Pump started to tease a new song called “Butterfly Doors,” which fans seemed excited about. That was until they noticed an ad-lib that furthers negative stereotypes against Asian people.
The backlash has been legitimate with Asian rappers and the hip-hop community frustrated that Pump would be so ignorant to include a “Ching Chong” ad-lib in his unreleased song while slanting his eyes in a video. The teaser clip has since been deleted from the rapper’s page but the official single has now been given a release date.
“Butterfly Doors” will be out on January 4 and all eyes will be on Pump to see if he removes the racist remarks or not. We’ll be able to listen to his new track in just a few days and given the controversy, we’re predicting that early streams will be pretty high. Will you be checking out Pump’s new song on Friday?
