Wanna hear a funny story? Well a while ago a former flame of mine decided (for herself) that she wanted to "spice things up" in the bedroom department and took on the task of taking Belly Dancing lessons. (SWEET!) Of course, as you may well have guessed, I was in FULL support of this new venture. So now, by lesson two she's been instructed to practice at home with the aid of music on the recommended CD "The Best of Belly Dancing." Half way through her "act" I hear the 1st striking chords of Jay-Z's "Big Pimpin," and I start to lose it! Kudos Timbaland, kudos. The way he first came across this sample may not have been as exciting as mine, but he scored even bigger points for making it one of Hip Hop's biggest hits. Sheesh, even the video got props when it debuted. With the infamous Dame Dash champaign pouring scene, the now late Pimp C, and it even featured a fresh-to-the-scene Gloria Velez in all-white slo-mo glory. One of Hype Williams' best. Now whenever I hear "Big Pimpin" I can't help but to picture her belly dancing to it. Pimp on pimpin'!
