"Gucci Gang" is a song by American rapper Lil Pump. It is produced by Bighead and co-produced by Gnealz, and is the fifth single from Lil Pump's debut album, Lil Pump. It was originally released on Pump's SoundCloud account on August 27, 2017,[3] and was later made available for digital download and streaming by Tha Lights Global and Warner Bros. Records on August 31, 2017.[4] It is Lil Pump's highest-charting single to date on the US Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number three.[5]

Production[edit]

In a November 2017 interview with Complex, producer Bighead spoke of his inspiration from Blink-182, whom he considers to have reached the Billboard charts with simple compositions: "Simple music is good music, because if a three-year-old or a four-year-old can sing it, that's what I aim for. Like "Gucci Gang"—a little kid can sing that."[6]

Music video[edit]

On October 20, 2017, Lil Pump posted a 44-second snippet of the music video for "Gucci Gang" on his Twitter page, telling fans to "retweet it if I should drop it right now".[7] He released the video three days later on his YouTube channel on October 23, 2017. As of October 2018, the video has received over 810 million views on YouTube.[8]

Reception[edit]

Despite the song's commercial success, the track's repetitive structure was criticized.[9] The song spawned numerous memes on social media.[10] Saturday Night Live aired a music video for a parody, "Tucci Gang", about the actor Stanley Tucci, with cast member Pete Davidson portraying Lil Pump.[11]

Remix[edit]

On March 17, 2018, a remix of the song premiered on OVO Sound Radio, featuring Ozuna, French Montana, J Balvin, Bad Bunny, Gucci Mane and 21 Savage.[12]
