Straight Up Pimpin' Since '03


The early 00’s have been reborn with this calypso cover of 50 Cent’s classic song, P.I.M.P., by Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band. Memories are flooding in of T-Mobile Sidekicks rocking this song as the ringtone as the tiny 2003 speakers can barely withstand the bass, me dying to buy a bulky iPod after seeing it in the music video, and suddenly thinking that white fedoras are the coolest thing ever (bad news that I found out the hard way: they aren’t). 2003 was a fun year. Now, I want to hear more songs covered in Caribbean sounds. Perhaps a Country Grammar reggae dub? Or a Thong Song salsa cover? The options are endless!
