I’m taking a brief vacation to close out my summer so I’m going to be gone for the next couple of days (until August 9th at least). While I’m gone, here are some Pimp C joints from the old spot to tide you guys over.
Baby Drew f/ Pimp C – “20 Inches & 4 Nickels”
from The Hand That Rocks the Cradle EP (Ground Hawg, 1998)
Baby Drew is a rapper from Milwaukee, WI who ran with a group called Country Boy Clique. He’s released a few solo records, including a 1998 album called The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, which was one of Drew’s solo releases before the Country Boy Clique was even formed. As far as I can tell, there are two versions of this particular record: a normal length one (which I can’t find the tracklist for) and an EP, which is just eight tracks short. The production is handled by Chris and Conrad Rosser for Bread & Water Productions, though I think “20 Inches & 4 Nickels” may have been a Pimp production.
Jahari f/ Pimp C – “BigShotz”
from BigShotz (Succe$$, 2000)
You might recognize “BigShotz” as a joint from a UGK guest feature bootleg called Kingz of Da Hood, but it was originally from an album put out by this dude Jahari. He’s a rapper from an unspecified part of the West Coast, and that’s really all I know about the guy. His album BigShotz was released in 2000 and featured a single by the name of “Come Ride With Me.” The title track also featured a guest verse from The Pimp (though he’s credited as “Pimp” rather than “Pimp C” on the back cover), which is always welcome.
The Big Boys f/ Pimp C – “Dirty South Shit (Bump ‘Dis)”
from Too Big For That (4712 Music/Yaa Bigg South, 2003)
I don’t have a lot of info on these guys. They’re are a quartet out of New Orleans, LA and “Dirty South Shit (Bump ‘Dis)” is from their 2003 album Too Big For That. That’s about all I know, really.
The homie scjoha pointed this out back at the old spot, but Pimp’s verse on this track has been used a few times before this. It was also used on Spice-1’s “Thug Thang Y2G,” then on Captain Save’em’s “Southwest” (which later appeared on the Platinum Thugs compilation album), and on 1da Boy’s “Down South Texan.”
