Lil Pump’s oft-delayed Harverd Dropout album is finally going to drop next month — barring anymore unforeseen twists and turns. The “Gucci Gang” creator announced a February 22 release date for his sophomore album on Wednesday night (January 23).
Pump’s LP has gone through several false starts, originally being targeted for an August 17, 2018 release. The 18-year-old rapper eventually pushed it back to September 14, but the date came and went with no sign of the album.

Persistent legal issues forced Pump to cancel his Harverd Dropout Tour last September. His troubles with the law continued months later, including a marijuana-related arrest in Denmark and an incident where he was kicked off a plane in Miami.
Pump’s legal woes ultimately cost him a festival gig in Australia. But, he did land a spot on the 2019 Coachella Festival lineup as a part of a new supergroup with Gucci Mane and Smokepurpp.
