The other day I was listening to a live version of “Big Pimpin'” on my iPod. Halfway through the beat changed to David Banner’s “Like A Pimp”. I then remembered how much I like that version. Most people know that this is from the Jay-Z documentary Fade To Black. I got the audio from the film a while ago but never figured out why it was never officially released. This is that audio. And there are some gems here: From the Amil-less version “You Me Him Her” to the Ghostface & Beyoncé version of “Summertime” to even the studio sessions with Rick Rubin, Kanye West, & Timbaland (Just to name a few). Check the tracklist, download, and enjoy.
