Hip Hop Samples: Big Pimpin’

Timbaland never ceases to amaze me. He produced much of  “Vol. 3…Life and Times of S. Carter” , Jay-Z’s fourth record. The last track on Vol. 3 is arguably Jay-Z’s most famous song, “Big Pimpin”. It turns out that Timbaland sampled “Khosara Khosara” in the beat, a song out of Egypt written originally by Baligh Hamdi and performed by Hossam Ramzy. Check it out.
