Rapper L’il Pump has unexpectedly shown his support for former President Donald Trump by getting a large tattoo on his thigh. The tattoo, which was unveiled in an Instagram post, depicts Trump’s mugshot from August 2023 when he turned himself in to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office in Georgia.
Despite facing charges related to the 2020 election, L’il Pump honors Trump as the “greatest president of all time.” This surprising display of support has garnered attention and sparked discussions.
The artist further participated in a Trump rally held in Miami during that particular year, merely a few days after openly expressing support for the then-president. Additionally, Trump graciously invited the rapper to join him on stage during his concluding campaign rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2020.

It seems that a prominent rap artist, who previously dedicated a significant portion of Trump’s initial term to criticizing him, has seemingly altered their stance considerably.
The Hill reports: “Rapper Snoop Dogg did a U-turn on his opinion about Donald Trump, saying he has “nothing but love and respect” for the former president following years of staunch criticism. In an interview with London’s The Sunday Times over the weekend, the ‘Gin and Juice’ rapper was asked about his thoughts on the GOP front-runner in the upcoming presidential election. He replied by praising Trump, mentioning the former president pardoned Michael ‘Harry-O’ Harris, a former associate of Suge Knight.”
“Donald Trump?” Snoop Dogg said. “He ain’t done nothing wrong to me. He has done only great things for me. He pardoned Michael Harris.”
“I have nothing but love and respect for Donald Trump,” Snoop added.
