"P.I.M.P." is a song by American hip-hop artist 50 Cent, recorded for his debut studio album Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2003). The song features production from Shady label-mate, Mr. Porter. A remixed version of the song, featuring fellow rappers Snoop Dogg, Lloyd Banks and Young Buck, was released as the album's third official single on August 12, 2003, although the remix was not initially part of the track listing: it was later added as a bonus track to some digital editions of the album.
Upon its release, the song was a significant commercial success, especially in the United States, where it peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 (although it therefore became the first single from the album not to peak at number #1 on the chart) and peaked in the top ten of many national charts worldwide. The song was later certified Gold by the RIAA for sales of 500,000+ copies.
Musically, the song is based a highly steel-drum-prominent production from Porter, and although it is predominantly a rap song, features elements of other genres, especially reggae, or music similar to that of the Caribbeans, within the steel drum-based production. Lyrically, the song describes how 50 Cent believes, despite what people have heard about him, that his lifestyle does not indicate great wealth and that he is, in fact, a "motherfucking P.I.M.P.".
