Lil Pump’s ‘Gucci Gang’ Becomes Shortest Top 10 Billboard Hit Since 1975
Lil Pump's hit single, "Gucci Gang," has finally cracked the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 but it's not the only feat for the song. Clocking in at two minutes and four seconds, the Florida rapper's track becomes the shortest song to chart in over 40 years.
The last time a track that short hit the top 10 was in 1975 with Dickie Goodman's "Mr. Jaws," which was only one second shorter than Pump's. While short songs weren't rare prior to 1975, song lengths have gotten longer, extending to around three to four minutes.
In October, Lil Pump dropped his self-titled debut album. The 15-track project includes features from Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Chief Keef, Lil Yachty, Rick Ross and Smokepurpp.
“People don’t really compare me to anybody," he told XXL about the album earlier this year. "They just say I’m a mumble rapper. I’m fine with that. I don’t really care. It’s not negative; I guess it’s just that ignorant s---. [My music] is just saying reckless s--- on a song but going with the flow so they’re still going to f---- with it, even though you’re saying some off the wall s---."
