How to do the "soul handshake"?

How do you do the "soul handshake," the one that African-American males do when they greet each other?

You may find a bit of information here, but I'm not sure I trust the source. Funny message board that…. Some sorta agenda that involves a lot of stampin'.

Yo dude,

I got back from america and asked a black man this exact question.

Just as you would expect it works like this.

Normal shake
Then Thumb 2 Thumb shake
Then Fingers locked in an open punch
Then pull away hard so it pop's

Of course .. i don't know if he was "soul"
