25 Songs Where Rappers Got Murdered on Their Own Sh*t

24. Jay-Z f/ UGK “Big Pimpin” (1999)

Murderer: Pimp C

Album: Vol. 3: The Life & Times of S. Carter
Label: Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam
Producer: Timbaland
Cold Cases: Three 6 Mafia's "Sippin' On Some Syrup"

"In the South, I'm regarded as the guy who, quote unquote, out-rapped Jay-Z," Bun B once boasted about this song. "Not saying that I'm a better rapper than Jay-Z, but I was able to out-rap Jay-Z on a track." Bun might have a point there, but as dope as his verse is, he's still playing second fiddle to the late great Pimp C, who made this Timbo track his bitch, added it to the stable, and put it on the stroll. Drunk people in clubs nationwide rejoice at being able to sing along to his slow, trill delivery. The legacy of this verse lives on—it was even quoted at length this year on Kendrick Lamar's "Blow My High (Members Only)". Maybe that's why the video version magically boasts an extra Hov verse at the end.
