50 Cent - “PIMP”
P.I.M.P. (2003), a rap song by 50 Cent.
This is a mastery of rap lyrics. It tells a story of pimping in a pimping style.
The video is directed by Chris Robinson (director).
I don't know what you heard about me But a bitch can't get a dollar out of me No Cadillac, no perms, you can't see That I'm a motherfucking P I M P

A official remix of the song was made, with additional rapper Snoop Dogg, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck.
In this remix, one verse in the original lyrics is removed, the one starting with “I told you fools before”, and is replaced by new verses from the other rappers. With respect to the lyrics itself, this change is not so good, because it removed parts of the stereotypical scene of pimping and the replacement lyrics is not as focused.
Here are the new verses (including spoken dialog.).
Pimp Pimp hurray! Pimp Pimp Hurray! [Don Juan] I bring you the chosen one, Big Jefferey [Snoop Dogg] Now this playa right here, he's different. He don't drive no cadilac [Everyone] Whaaaaaaat?!
