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...
"Thats a one hot album every 10 year average"
If all of those Nas albums were as nice as yall saying they are, that bar (or string of bars) wouldnt have been so potent.
"Niggas forgot you emceed"
Lot of faking going on here.
Nas didnt have a string of 3 GOOD albums by 29 like kendrick does. Stop it.
