It seems that his biological father is estranged from him. It’s just known, that the man comes from Colombia. He immigrated to United States a little prior to Lil Pump’s birth.
The rapper’s mother struggled a lot after her divorce from Lil Pump’s father. It was hard for her to care about her kids as a single parent. Soon she met another man and tied a knot with him.
She is Colombian, too. She had troubled relationships with her son Gazzy in his teens, because he got used to smoking weeds since the 6th grade at school and a year later he was expelled from school for it. It’s not known, whether she supports her son in what he is making or not.

Gazzy Garcia, internationally known as Lil Pump, was born in the suburb of Miami, Florida. During some period he was brought up by a single mother, and after her re-marrying to another man, the boy had to deal with a stepdad. Gazzy is in bad terms with him.

He was interested in music in his early years. The boy listened to such performers as Chie Keef, Fredo Santana and others. His love to music led him to new meetings with other fans of such art. At the age of 13 Gazzy crossed the ways with Omar Pineiro, which is better known under the name Smokepurpp. Their collaboration brought Lil Pump his first fame.
He made independent records of his songs and uploaded them to the site “SoundCloud”. His single “Lil Pump” was listened million times, and it inspired the young performer to record more tracks.
