Summer Jam of the Day

As I was blasting the Life and Times of S. Carter to wake myself up during my morning commute, “Big Pimpin’” brings back the hot summer vibe in 1999. At the time, the tune was like the soundtrack for the beach. Although the radio played it all summer long because Timbaland’s beat was ridiculously addictive, I didn’t find it intriguing until I heard the album version. The unsanitized lyrics, which were too hot for radio, blew me away:

You know I thug ’em, fuck ’em, love ’em, leave ’em
Cause I don’t fuckin’ need ’em
Take ’em out the hood
Keep ’em lookin’ good
But I don’t fuckin’ feed em
First time they fuss I’m breezin’
Talkin’ ’bout what’s the reasons
I’m a pimp in every sense of the word, bitch
Better trust and believe ’em
In a cut where I keep ’em
‘Til I need a nut
‘Til I need to be (in) the guts
Then it’s beep-beep and I’m pickin ’em up
Let ’em play with the dick in the truck
Many chicks wanna put Jigga fist in cuffs
Divorce him and split his bucks
Just because you got good head
I’m ma break bread
So you can be livin’ it up
Shit I part wit nothin’
Y’all be frontin’
Me give my heart to a woman
Not for nothin’ never happen’
I’ll be forever mackin’
Heart cold as assassins, I got no passion
I got no patience and I hate waitin’
Hoe get your ass in…
