Lil Pump broke into the mainstream in 2018 following the success of "Gucci Gang." Since then, he's been dropping one-off singles while fans await the arrival of his project Harverd Dropout which has been pushed back numerous times. Now, that it's a new year, it looks like Pump is gearing up to drop it off anytime now. To kick off the campaign, he comes through with his latest track, "Butterfly Doors."
"Butterfly Doors" sparked serious controversy at the tail end 2018 when he previewed the single on Instagram. Pump was quickly called out for mocking Asians on the song, rapping, "Smokin' on dope, they call me Yao Ming cause my eyes real low (ching chong)." Awkwafina called out the rapper on Twitter, condemning his words while clowning his unoriginality.
Pump later apologized for the comments after deleting the snippet of the song from his Instagram page. The complaints were clearly heard loud and clear since the rapper edited the song to censor the Yao Ming line and exclude the "Ching Chong" adlib.
