What is 4pf? Rappers Lil Baby and Lil Durk have joined forces in a new collaborative album The Voice Of Heroes. Amid the new album some are curious to know the meaning behind the Lil Baby term 4pf, which features on the album’s cover.

What is 4pf and what does it mean?

4pf is an acronym that stands for 4 pockets full. It was first popularised by Atlanta rapper Lil Baby and has been used frequently throughout his career.

According to Urban Dictionary, 4pf or 4 pockets full is said to symbolise wealth and having a lot of money. The site explains the term refers to all four pockets of a pair of trousers being full.

Lil Baby has since used the term 4 pockets full as the name of his own record label, which aims to support up and coming artists.

While the phrase is known for its association with Lil Baby, other rappers including Offset, Blacc Zacc, Lil GotIt and Marlo have also used it.

Who is Lil Baby?

Lil Baby, whose real name is Dominique Armani Jones, is a rapper and singer born 3 December 1994. The artist rose to popularity in 2017 following the release of his mixtape, Perfect Timing.

He later released his debut album Harder Than Ever in 2018, which saw him collaborate with Hotline Bling and One Dance singer Drake.

In spite of his popularity, the rapper still keeps it humble. In an interview with The New York Times, he explained: “People don’t think I’m as big as I am because I don’t really talk about it.

“Most people are acting like more than what they are. I’m acting like less than what I am.”
