Sometimes slump can just mean punching someone really hard

Shawn: “Hey, put that remote down or I’ll straight up slump your ass. I’m watchin’ this.”

Russ: “Come on, man, the game’s about to start.”

Shawn: “Just chill dude, it’s almost over.”

Russ: “How can you watch this garbage?”

Shawn: “I love Cheaterz, bro. Chicks be like slumpin’ on they boyfriends when they find out they been strayin´.”

Russ: “Whatever, man, it’s garbage.”
