As one of the most polarizing figures in hip-hop today, 17-year-old stacked line-upfor the 2018 edition of BET Experience has just gained a little bit more star power as Lil Pump has been announced as a special guest for the festivities, performing and screaming "Esskeetit" every chance he gets.
The news was reported exclusively by Hip Hop DX on the same day that the artist dropped his solo version of "Welcome To The Party." The line-up was previously announced for the L.A. Live festival, bringing throwback names like Ludacris, LL Cool J, Nas and Ne-Yo to the Staples Center for the first day of the program. More R&B-centric performers were announced for Friday, June 22 with Chris Brown, SZA, and Ella Mai getting all the shine and Rae Sremmurd bringing the heat on Saturday with their headlining set. Pump will be included on Saturday's turn-up date along with performances by A$AP Ferg and Playboi Carti.
Tickets are available right now for each date of the show with spots at the Saturday show starting at $49.50.
