"Big Pimpin'" not only introduced the mainstream rap world to Port Arthur's finest rap group, it was also the most visible of Timbaland's tracks to be built around Arabic music, flipping Egyptian star Abdel Halim Hafez's "Khosara." Tim would continue to draw on that part of the world as an influence throughout his career, and many other hip-hop producers picked up on the trend in the decade that followed.
