Smokepurpp Confirms He, Lil Pump and Gucci Mane Will Perform as Gucci Gang at 2019 Coachella
Last night (Jan. 3), the 2018 XXL Freshman hit up social media to express his excitement for his set with the newly formed rap group named after his friend Lil Pump's breakout 2017 single "Gucci Gang." In a tweet, the "Sauce Like This" rapper confirmed that he will join Lil Pump and Gucci Mane on stage to perform as Gucci Gang after many assumed the moniker was a typo on Coachella's show flyer.
"GUCCI GANG AT COACHELLA @lilpump @gucci1017 we fucking shit up !! ," Smokepurpp tweeted.
Shortly after the announcement, the festival's organizers confirmed that no mistake was made on their part. A rep for the festival told TMZ that the organizers had intended to spell out the phrase "Gucci Gang" instead of "Gucci Mane" on the text overlaid onto a GuWop image they used on their website. Since both Gucci’s 1017 Eskimo Records label and Purpp are signed to Alamo Records, fans assumed that Coachella had formed the group themselves and named it after Lil Pump's breakthrough hit from 2017 "Gucci Gang."
The Evil Genius and the two Miami rappers will invade Coachella in April along with other major hip-hop and R&B artists like Kid Cudi, Anderson .Paak, Juice Wrld, Jaden Smith, Tierra Whack, Wiz Khalifa, Sheck Wes, Virgil Abloh, TDE's SiR, J. Balvin and more. 2019 Coachella will take place in Indio, Calif. on Fri, April 12 to Sat. April 14 and then Fri., April 19 to Sun., April 21.
