PIMP KNOWS BEST - Pt. 1 : “Don’t Hate The Player”
Ayo playas and playarettes, what’s good? It’s the Pimp, back with a new column. I’m about to drop some jewels on ya cats so listen up:
As y’all already know, the Pimp been in this bitch for a couple decades, so even though I dig most of today’s hip hop artists, every now and then I gotta bump some o’ that good ol’ golden era shit. Aight, so I’ve been on YouTube the other gettin’ it crackalackin’ to some grimey ass Wu-Tang shit. I was watching the “Mystery of Chessboxin’” video, real hyped n shit, nahmsayin? The Pimp was sittin’ there like “DOO-HA! DOO-HA! DOO-HA!……RAAAW IMMA GIVE TO YA, WITH NO TRIVIA….COCAINE STRAIGHT FROM BOLIVIA” - ya feelin’ me?
Safe 2 say that shit put me back to the 90s for a minute, bringin back good memories…until the Pimp took a look at those comments mufuckas put below the video.
Instead of tellin’ people how much they loved the song, the video, Masta Killa’s verse or sumthn, all these cats were talking bout was how wack hip hop nowadays is:
- “Boo-hoo, I miss those days when hip hop was still real n shit”
Mufucka what? You prolly was about 9 years old when “The Documentary” dropped, fuck you talkin’ bout you miss the golden era? Ayo “Chessboxin’” came out in 1993 bitch, all you miss from that time is havin a good excuse to shit your pants in public.
- “So much better than Lil’ Wayne!”
Aight playa, here’s a list about the estimated amount of fucks Weezy gives:
Funny shit about this is, that cats hate Lil’ Wayne mostly for being “commercial” and talkin’ bout “Bling Bling” n shit. Let me get this straight: the Wu-Tang Clan were commercial as fuck back then, they been movin millions of units, “36 Chambers” went fuckin’ platinum in the 90s! And them cats been wearing grills back then, rappin bout bitches n money right from the start.
Me, personally, I don’t blame em for that. The Pimp loves some ignorant shit. The basic problem in this whole discussion are the so-called fans out there, who don’t know their math, can you dig it?
But this kinda bullshit ain’t restricted for Golden Era hip hop only. Uh-uh, playa. Everytime an “underground” rapper drops a new video and it be gittin like 3.000 views, you can count on some white boy with a Stones Throw sweater to point out how that very video is so much better than Akon’s whole discography.
But when a new T-Pain video drops, you don’t see any mufucka go like “Oh mayne, that shit way doper than anything Jeru The Damaja bein doin EVER!”. It’s sorta like my man Chris Rock said, when he was talkin’ bout fat bitches. Fat bitches can run their mouths bout skinny chicks however the fuck they want, while it would be mean for skinny bitches to diss a chubby ho for bein overweight.
So when an unsigned rapper tries to git into the game, first thing he gon do is make a song in which he disses every mufucka that ever sold more than 50.000 units. And those wo been in the game for a few decaded but never managed to sell over 50.000 units eventually do the same - and that’s simply because they’re bummed out since their mediocre ass talent didn’t lead to a big career. You can quote the Pimp on this one, aight.
You ain’t never gonna hear Jay-Z say some shit about any up and coming MC from Boston, simply cause Jigga don’t give a flying fizzuck bout your sorry ass. But any up and coming rapper will tell you bout how Jay fell of after “Reasonable Doubt”, how doin’ an entire album with Linkin Park was gay as fuck…but that he still wanna fuck Beyoncé.
So, that’s the Status Quo, but the Pimp wouldn’t be the Pimp if you didn’t tell all o’ ya aspiring artists how to do it right.
It’s as simple as recognizing a Lex Luger beat: Focus on your FUCKIN music, playboy. Don’t fuck up by grudging other people’s success.
And for the fans: Listen to whatever pleases you and enjoy that shit. Next time you watch a Pete Rock & CL Smooth joint on YouTube, comment on those ill basslines the Soul Brother #1 been flippin and don’t try to compare it to a Yo Gotti mixtape, foo.
The Pimp gon’ chillax to “The world is yours”, then play some Snoop, and after that I might git REAL wavy and bump a French Montana mixtape in my ride. Follow my example, playas.
