See how Daddy does his.
28 April 2010 | by (Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane) – See all my reviews

What we got here is a fine piece of documentary film-making that gives a nice look into the game. What you say? The Pimp game, brutha, know what I'm saying.

Ya's got Scorpio, Don Juan, Big Lex, Snooky and all the top mac's spitting their game at you and all their ho's, know what I'm saying. And the ho's on display here are for real, know what I'm saying, they got the asses up in the air all day long for sho'. These bitches know what time it is, and if they don't know, then they get shut down, know what I'm saying. If they get outta pocket, they get pimp arrested. That ain't practiced by all Pimps, but some still keep their ho's on a collar for sho', know what I'm saying. Besides the bitches ya get to know the Pimps style, their rides, their swagger, and just everything that makes them suitable for the pimpin' game, know what I'm saying.

The pimpin' game ain't easy. It's got trials and tribulations of any stressful job, know what I'm saying. Everybody's hating the Pimp, but they don't give a f@ck, cause it's all about making the buck, know what I'm saying. If you feel like you could be a pimp, or think ya are already, check yourself, and see how a real Daddy does it, know what I'm saying.
