    Harverd Dropout is by no means perfect: The album has a lot of throwaways and Pump’s development as a lyricist seems stunted by his youthful success--for all of his bragging and achievements, he really should sound as if he’s having more fun. But then again, maybe he’s concentrating on keeping the melodies simple and catchy and his words in league with his image.

    Other than polished vocals and drastically better mixing, Lil Pump sounds the exact same as he did when he dropped Lil Pump; zooted on Xans, lean, and without a care in the world. The rapping is simple, the concepts are easy to grasp as he pretty much gets straight to the point on all 16 tracks (said point being the drugs and money he bathes in excessively).

    On the basis of Pump’s youth and energy, it’s a mostly enjoyable listen, but those are traits not at all unique to him, and it’s hard to feel optimistic about how much longevity he has. After all, he’s not getting any younger.

    Tongue-in-cheek humour is Pump’s biggest selling point, but many of the album’s 16 songs (most of which have a running time of just over two minutes) feel like little more than regurgitated punchlines or uninspired variations on themes already set up and adequately executed on the rapper’s early tracks.

    Pump’s only motivation is to stunt on his old high school teachers. That theme is heavy-handed on the album, as Pump bashes us with a running joke about how he used to go to Harvard before dropping out.

    I'd suggest downloading the two good songs and forgetting the rest of this album ever happened.

    The Florida rapper’s limited strengths and many weaknesses become highly detectable on Harverd Dropout. Under Pump’s control, the album piles up songs without structure, lines without meaning, and hooks without melody; it’s utterly tasteless.

Lil Pump might not be a favored person in general, but it's gonna be sad if he were to die, possibly as sad as X's death. Expand

The way he is able sustain his status in music is thanks to huge features, bragging one-liners and of course the generic raps about Gucci, Girls and Money. So why give this a 7? It’s worked out hasn’t it. People are listening to him and buying into his music, which is really all you can ask for. At least you give Pump credit to pull off something like that. Expand

His strength has always been in his ignorant, catchy bangers - a commodity that is in short supply on his debut album. it says a lot when the guest verses are by far the best parts of your debut album - Lil Wayne is a particularly prime example. Also, Zoom Zoom Zoom is the worst song I've listened to all year so far. Expand
