About Big Pimpin'

"Big Pimpin'" is the third and final single from rapper Jay-Z's fourth album Vol. 3... Life and Times of S. Carter. Iconic Southern hip hop group UGK is featured. Timbaland produced the song. "Big Pimpin'" was the most successful single from this album, as it reached #18 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Rhythmic Top 40 chart. In Rolling Stone's updated 2010 list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time", the song ranked at #467. Despite the song's performance, Jay-Z later revealed he regretted the song's lyrics, claiming that, "Some [lyrics] become really profound when you see them in writing. Not "Big Pimpin." That's the exception. It was like, I can't believe I said that. And kept saying it. What kind of animal would say this sort of thing? Reading it is really harsh." Katy Perry covered the song during her 2011/12 California Dreams Tour. The cast of The Big Bang Theory made a flashmob during the live taping of an episode, featuring the song as well as others.
