Pimp C f/ Bun B, Mike Jones – “Pourin’ Up”
from Pourin’ Up CD single (Rap-A-Lot, 2006)
“Pourin’ Up” was the third single (after “Free” and “Knockin’ Doorz Down”) from Pimpalation*, which had the prestigious honor of being the first Pimp C album to be released after he got out of the joint.
Obviously, the hook is a flip of Pimp’s classic “Smokin’ out/pourin’ up” line from “Big Pimpin’.” While I like the song a lot, I always seem to conflate it with “My ’64” by Mike Jones. I guess it makes sense, since Salih Williams does the beats for both tracks and they both feature Bun B and the human ninja turtle that is Mike Jones.
The only bad thing about this particular CD single is that it’s missing the acapella available on the 12″ vinyl pressing. Hrmph… score another one for the vinyl format, I suppose.

* It’s technically his third album and really more of a compilation than anything, hence the name.
