Too Short Discusses Why Pimp C Didn’t Want To Do “Big Pimpin” With Jay-Z
One thing about the Hip Hop community is that we have seen our shares of ups and downs. We have lost so many music legends over the years and the music genre was not set out to be like that at all. Here in Louisiana, we have some of the biggest artists on the 3rd Coast including Slim Thug, Lil KeKe, and Underground Kingz. (UGK'Z). While many of us have been fans of UGK alas Bun-B and Pimp C, they didn't really hit nationally until they jumped on "Big Pimpin" with Jay-Z. What many may not know is the song almost didn't happen because Pimp C didn't want to do the song originally. Check out this exclusive interview with Shannon Sharp talking with Pimp C's former label mate Too Short.
Check out the interview between the 2 gentlemen and decide whether you think it was a legitimate reason or not.
What's funny is there were rumblings throughout the industry and the radio world that Pimp didn't want to do the song but many of us thought it was because it was a little different than what we had come to love from The Underground Kingz. The song was a massive hit for all parties involved and introduced each artist to an entirely new fan base whether you were a fan of Jay-Z or UGK'Z. It will still get the party going or any family get-together if you decide to play it.
I am glad the Too Short was able to convince Pimp C to take that trip to Miami because after hearing the song for so long I don't think it would have been as big of a hit if those 2 power forces didn't collide on this song.
What do you think about this new revelation?
