Garcia started writing music at a very young age. When he was 13 years old, his cousin introduced the aspiring rapper to Omar Pineiro, known as Smokepurpp. The two musicians eventually started working together. Shortly, Garcia adopted the pseudonym “Lil Pump.” The young man was expelled from different schools due to problems with behavior.

It became a debut single for Gazzy. He continued working hard and shortly released four more singles "Elementary", "Ignorant", "Gang Shit", and "Drum$tick", all of which were uploaded to SoundCloud. Each of them was downloaded more than 3 million times.
