"Xxplosive" is a song by Dr. Dre from his album 2001. The song is number 6 in the track listing of the album. "Xxplosive" features Kurupt, Hittman, and Six-Two on the verses and Nate Dogg singing the chorus. The track is heavily based upon the song "Bumpy's Lament" by Soul Mann & The Brothers.The original title of the song was "The Way I Be Pimpin," which featured Royce da 5'9" on the chorus and Dre rapping the verses.
Dr. Dre did not rap on "Xxplosive," instead the song features Kurupt, Nate Dogg, Hittman and Six-Two. In the first verse, Hittman raps about how pimping has made him a changed man due to "all the girls" saying "now his shit's the bomb" after claiming that "girls used to turn him back." Kurupt, Nate Dogg, and Six-Two's verses deal with how good they are at pimping, how many girls they can get, and how much money they make through pimping. "The Way I Be Pimpin" (the original version of the song prior to "Xxplosive") basically has the same concept as "Xxplosive" with different lyrics.
