Lil' Pump flips off WestJet in song "Gucci Gang"

Thu Dec 14, 2017 12:12 pm

I was listening to Gucci Gang a couple of days ago and heard the word WestJet in the song. I didn't know if it was actually in the song or if my mind was just playing tricks on me.

I looked up the transcript and I was right, he (Lil' Pump) flips off WestJet throughout the song.

Anybody know why he does this?

Nobody is going to pay any attention at all to what this one hit wonder has to mumble in his songs. So WestJet cannot really be bothered by it, he will already be forgotten in 2018.

Gucci gang gucci gang gucci gang gucci gang gucci gang gucci gang gucci gang!

Just kidding... but he does reference flying private jets now in the preceding line, so really I think he means to flip off all commerial travel instead of private jets (like, haha I don't have to fly coach anymore) and, in his laziness, chose "WestJet" to rhyme with "private jet" in the song. That or he actually was once kicked off of a WS flight at one time, referenced by the live before both of those... which wouldn't be surprising. See below...

"They kicked me out the plane off a Percocet
Now Lil Pump fly a private jet
Everybody screaming 'f*** West Jet!'"

I'm kinda disgusted that I find the song so catchy... :banghead:

What the hell is he screeching at the end of some of his sentences? It sounds like he's saying "Ashcat"..

So this rapper was actually kicked off an WestJet flight for being too loud.

Whatever, this isn't going to become breaking news.

Give them a couple years and when they are broke and forgotten they will be frequent fliers on Spirit.

The man looks like he has special needs or consumes cough syrup on a regular basis.

These are the kind of clips that TMZ and the like pick up and (sadly) become a story. Followed by the the celeb's rabid social media crew that start commenting that "they'll never fly XYZ airlines!" or "XYZ airlines is racist!"

I'm assuming that he's either high or intoxicated? I feel for the cabin crew who have to put up with him.

I want to know where these rappers get the money from, when rock bands regularly tell of working years on tiny wages until the big bucks finally arrive. These rapper acts seem to turn up with millions immediately available to "flex" after just one release

It's a mix of two things. First they might not be that rich, the producers (usually rappers themselves) are, so any nice car/jet seen can be the producers'. Then it's the target demographic and the way to their heart : watchers of reality TV and the like, ready to spend money for something they like right away with their smartphone in hand.
