Pimp C wasn't sure about what Hov was rapping about on “Big Pimpin' at first
Pimp C was hestitant to feature on Jay-Z's “Big Pimpin'” at first because he thought Hov's line: “Let 'em play with the dick in the truck,” was reffering to masturbation. According to Kyambo “Hip-Hop” Joshua, Roc-A-Fella's A&R, Pimp C was initially hesitant to hop on the track because of 2Pac's death but after he got over it, he had an issue with Jay's bar.
“But once he got past that, he thought Jay was saying that he was playing with his dick in the truck,” Joshua recently told the R.O.A.D podcast. “So he's like, ‘Man, I'm not getting on no song with another man talkin' bout playing with hisself in the truck! Young Hop, you my boy, but what you tryna have me doin', man?' He said, ‘That's like career suicide!'”
Joshua added that the UGK rapper accepted the feature after they explained the line to him. “He said, ‘I could see that. That makes sense now.' Then he kinda got closer to doing it.”
