Songfacts®:

  • A "pump" alludes to a pump-action shotgun where the shooter controls repeated firing manually by moving a sliding handguard on the gun's forestock. Here, Digga D and his close friend, Liverpool rapper Still Brickin, rap about the powerful weapon and boast about their jewelry and women.
  • G-Unit was a New York hip-hop group comprising rappers 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, and Lloyd Banks. Digga D is a longtime fan of the trio and "Pump 101" samples the hook of their 2003 hit "Stunt 101." The Ladbroke Grove MC previously sampled G-Unit on his Made In The Pyrex track "My Brucky."
  • Digga D takes on the cadence and flow of 50 Cent, even giving his own rendition of the G-Unit call, when he shouts out his own drill collective and gang CCM.
