Rapper Lil Pump was merely sitting down and preparing for the next scene in his latest music video when bad luck fell upon him. The scene required Pump to hold a snake according to TMZ and the crew was giving the rapper the slithering animal during the Thursday night shoot.
Everything seemed normal at first until the snake clearly felt threatened and bit Pump right in his hand.
The rapper immediately jumped to his feet and shook the snake free from his hand before making his way to the camera to show the damage.
