Hip-hop HYPER-trophy

03 Apr Posted by in Hip hop history | Comments

It’s Flyday and we’re back at it! Brofessor Young Bladez aka The Peoplez
Champ of the HYPER-Trophy. This week we’re switching it up a little,
with less focus on the artist and more focus on the song. We got Jay-Z
“Big Pimpn’” on deck.

So let’s cover Jay-Z real quick: Street level dope dealer turned rapper,
then started his own record label Roc-a-fella Records (inspired by the
Rockerfellar family.. members of the Illuminati). Sells said record
label to giant corporation Def-Jam, thus selling his own soul to the
devil and joining the Illuminati himself… Or that’s what the
conspiracy theorist in me wants to believe.

OK so back on track, Big Pimpn’ features UGK (Bun-B and Pimp C), two big
hitters from the south. A collaboration track that crossed Southern and
East Coast styles, the song was produced by mega producer Timbaland. Not
only was this track one of the best songs of it’s era, it also came with
one of the best music videos of it’s time. The song was the #1 single
off of Jay’s Vol.3.. Life and Times of S. Carter, which was his 4th
studio album. The album went triple platinum and debuted at 1#. Jay has
went on record saying that he regrets a lot of the lyrics in this track,
guess it’s not conducive to his marriage with Beyonce.

So here we go kid! Turn this track up and lift something with swagger
and aggression!
