"Big Pimpin'," as a track, is a concoction of cultures as Brooklyn-bred MC Jay-Z and his accelerated flow, teamed with Virginia's own Timbaland, for a track that sampled a Middle Eastern tune, "Khosara" (a lawsuit would follow), and featured Houston's UGK (RIP Pimp C). But, a decade later Jay admits that he's not proud of his ode to pimping. "Some [lyrics] become really profound when you see them in writing. Not "Big Pimpin." That's the exception. It was like, I can't believe I said that. And kept saying it," Jay confessed.
