There is about to be an onslaught of Lil Pump music hitting the streaming services later on this week, with the rapper’s upcoming mixtape, appropriately titled Lil Pump Tape, dropping on October 6th. To get fans even more hyped for the roll out of his new material, he’s dropped a new music video for the track “Who Dat,” made in conjunction with Laka Films.
The song, which is on the shorter side at around two minutes and thirty seconds, the visuals divide themselves up into three settings: inside Pump’s kitchen, out in the hallway of the apartment or condo building in which he supposedly lives, and out on a rooftop terrasse, the the cityscape glittering with a thousand different lights against the night sky. The rapper goes about the proceedings without a shirt because, for real, he doesn’t have time for menial activities such as putting on an article of clothing. Instead, he devotes himself to more productive endeavors, such as smoking continuously throughout the shoot and picking up a “Caution: Wet Floor” sign so that he can use it as a totally convincing air guitar prop. Additionally, he’s also wearing what looks like a bandanna around his neck, draping it over his shoulders like a cape. It’s not Batman, just Lil Pump.
The video also has a stutter effect smoothed over its entire running time, looking like the visuals are about to stop at any moment to test the emergency broadcast system. With some odd editing choices, the construction of the video is definitely meant to have a more grisly quality to it, sort of like what you’d find in one of those “found footage” horror movies. In general, if you were a fan of Pump’s previous output with respect to both songs and music videos, then you’ll more than like find something to enjoy here. If not, it’s doubtful that he’ll rope you into becoming his newest convert, but who knows. The cover art for his upcoming mixtape, which depicts his riding around in shark-infested waters, captures the playful tone that this video attempts to embody.
