#ErThangSkanless is the movement, and T.F is not slowing down. The South Central rapper is best known for “keeping it skanless,” breaking onto the scene summer of 2016 on ScHoolboy Q’s crip anthem “Tookie Knows II” off Blank Face. Fast forward to 2019 and he keeps his foot on the gas with his new release, “Big Poppa Pump.”

The new single pays homage to Snoop Dogg’s “Pump Pump” from his classic 1993 album Doggystyle. Directed by Marcos Jay Teno, the visual showcases a backyard wrestling match, laced with performances in the ring from T.F and fellow L.A. rapper Bale both decked out in over-the-top wigs and suits. Multiple Sony Handycams were passed to people in the crowd to fully encapsulate all angles of the ring. 

On the verse, T.F spits that real: “You wanna go to war, then get your money up / survive a chopper bullet, that’s a tummy tuck / You niggas think it’s funny huh, wait til your mama porch bloodied up.”

Stay for the end for an audio clip from ’80s wrestling legend Scott Steiner, also known as Big Poppa Pump.
