    Remember when Pimp C asked Big Gipp to borrow his flow for "Big Pimpin" just to spite Jay over Timbaland's "fruity" sounding flutes?

    Or when 50 Cent changed his style up at the suggestion of fellow G-Unit member Lloyd Banks and ironically scored the biggest hit of his career with "In the Club"?

    List times where rappers experimented with someone else's flow. Provide evidence of where the flow originated.

    You can talk about "chameleons" like Drake and The Game, impersonators like The Realest and Lil Zane, or how everybody is a member of Migos, but I'm more interested in one-offs where you can trace a flow back to a particular song.

    How was it to spite jay ??

    Pimp C’s “Big Pimpin” verse was only eight bars because he never wanted to do the song in the first place. He thought that UGK would alienate their core fanbase by doing a crossover record (“How is Texas muthafuckers gonna look at us?”), and that Timbaland’s beat wasn’t good enough, saying, “I don’t know about them flutes, man.” When Jive Records A&R Jeff Sledge later asked Pimp why he only wrote eight bars, Pimp responded, “Man, fuck Jay-Z, man. I ain’t giving him 16. I’m only giving him eight.”

    Lol if i was jay when i added that extra beers verse i would've cut pimp shit. I'm not tolerating such fuckery

    If they cut Pimp out they woulda hadta change the hook... Pimp thought UGK were being used, which Jay is known for doing...

    Also, Bun B gave him a ridiculous amount of bars and some of it ended up gettin cut for Jay's last verse....

    Imo Pimp's verse was the best way to end the song...

    Why would the hook change ?? Pimp c wasn't essential to that song, 8 bars ?? Shhh any southern rapper could've did the job. But if you're a fan of them you'll prolly see it different. I don't get this jay uses people less famous than him thing. Jay was international by vol 3 that was established with vol 2. So what is their you gain by using ugk
